Quick and Easy Dinner Ideas with Betty Crocker Ultimate Hamburger Helper Mixes and Ultimate Potatoes {Prize Pack Giveaway}

Lefty Betty Crocker Logos
With the arrival of fall and the back-to-school transition occurring in households across the country, it seems even more important to carve out moments to relax and enjoy time together as a family. Between work, school, sports, homework and more, the days might just fly by before our eyes if we don't designate dinnertime as family time, right?

Therefore, it is even more important to look for ways to get a good meal on the table that doesn't require a great deal of time in the kitchen. After a busy day, no one wants to spend any of their precious spare minutes cooking instead of bonding!

Which is why now is the perfect time to try out the all-new Betty Crocker Ultimate Potatoes and Ultimate Hamburger Helper mixes to result in a quick and tasty meal on the table without wasting a single second.

Betty Crocker Ultimate

Containing just about everything you need to whip up a delicious main course or side dish, each box of Betty Crocker Ultimates comes with both delicious seasoning and a rich, creamy sauce. Each of these products comes in a variety of flavors including Ultimate Chicken Helper Cheddar Broccoli, Ultimate Au Gratin Potatoes, Ultimate Hamburger Helper Three Cheese Marinara and Ultimate Cheddar Mashed Potatoes.

Although we don't do a great deal with hamburger around our house (half of us are vegetarians), when the Ultimate Betty Crocker Loaded Mashed Potatoes and Ultimate Hamburger Helper Three Cheese Marinara arrived with a selection of serving accessories, I knew that we were still going to be able to see just how fast and convenient these meals would be.

Betty Crocker review

Sure enough, preparing the Ultimate Loaded Potatoes barely took more than a few minutes and required just about zero effort on my part.

After boiling water and butter and stirring in milk and the potato mix...

instant mashed potatoes

...I stirred in the cheese sauce and whipped the whole thing with a fork.

VoilĂ ! Instant loaded mashed potatoes!
