Loaded Baked Potato Salad

Loaded Baked Potato Salad

During the summer, we tend to grill out practically every night that it isn’t raining! We tend to eat a potato dish, green vegetable, and sometimes a salad with each meal. One favorite, is Baked Potato Salad, and it’s great for potlucks or taking to barbecues too! The best part is that it’s really easy to make, double (or more) if needed, and people always ask for the recipe, so I thought I’d share it here, so it’s easy to point them right to it. I’d love for you to bookmark it, Pin It, share on FB using the social share buttons here, Stumble It, etc to share with your friends and family too :)

Now that my kids are in the tween/teen age category, they are being given additional responsibilities around our home. While that does help us as parents out, the primary goal is to help them learn life skills they can use for the rest of their life. My middle school son, who has some special needs, has been learning some basic cooking skills in one of his classes. In the beginning, he was baking brownies, cookies, and cakes, but now he’s advanced to making quick and easy dinners. When it’s “his” night to make dinner, he gets a budget, we stop by the store on the way home from sports practice and pick up the ingredients, teaching him some financial skills too! Ground Beef at our local store is $1.99/lb and Hamburger Helper is $1.00. We select some veggies for around $2 for sides, and for $5 he can make a complete meal for 4. With the Hamburger Helper – Protein Rebate, it brings the price down to $3!!!

We’ve been practicing with him to brown some ground beef, drain it, and know when it’s done, then he can browse the pantry and spice cabinet to see what we have on hand for him to add in,such as spices, salsa, etc. and then we add in a box of Hamburger Helper to complete the meal. I love that it’s so easy for him to make without a lot of supervision, clean up is easy, and with growing boys there is never any leftovers, they eat every last bite!

Weeknights are crazy for us, with all the boys in various sports, school clubs, and activities. This is a product I typically buy several boxes of at the supermarket so we always have a quick and easy meal on hand. I grab extra packages of ground beef, chicken, or tuna depending on what type of Hamburger Helper I’m getting, and tuck those in the freezer or pantry so they’re on hand when schedule surprises arise. It’s also really nice to have on hand in case mom gets sick and needs one of the guys to cover dinner preparation :)

About Hamburger Helper:

Helper has always been a value brand—we launched in the 1970’s to help consumers, like you, stretch their dollars while also enjoying a delicious and hearty meal. We are demonstrating our value again, in a new way, with free ground beef!
