This Hamburger Helper is one of those simple dinners that has been a lifesaver for our busy family. It only requires one pan (which equals fewer dishes to clean up), and the meal practically cooks itself after about 5 minutes of hands-on prep. That gives me just enough time to change a diaper, unpack the lunch boxes, and steam some broccoli before we all sit down to eat. And best of all, when the kids join us at the table, they greet their dinners with smiles instead of tears, they clean their plates, and then they often ask for more. That’s when you’ll feel like a true success. That’s when you will know that you’ve found the best of all worlds: healthy, easy, and delicious!

Best of all, the Cornbread Casserole is a complete meal in one pan. You don’t have to scramble to pull together a side dish or veggies at the last minute, since the filling is loaded with plenty of bell peppers, onions, tomatoes, and corn. A small amount of leftover (or rotisserie) chicken goes a long way and adds a protein boost; or you can substitute a can of beans for the meat and create a vegetarian option. It’s cheesy, it’s sweet, it’s tangy, it’s filling, it’s comforting, and it’s finished with a delicious cornbread crust!

We have this routine on Friday nights. It’s an end-of-the-week treat that makes all of us very happy (for various reasons), and it always involves pizza.
You see, we live in the middle of nowhere, so meal delivery options are non-existent (that’s right — we don’t even have a single restaurant or fast food joint that will bring food to our doorstep)! Instead, if we want to dine out, we can either drive 30-45 minutes to the nearest bigger town, or we can rely on a few little restaurants that we have in Madison for the basics. Fortunately for our pizza-loving family, two of the local options specialize in Italian food AND do a nice carry-out business.
After a busy holiday full of rich food and hours spent in the kitchen, this turkey soup is a lighter option to take advantage of leftover meat while only requiring 15 minutes of prep!

And before you run off and assume that your kids won’t enjoy kielbasa, just WAIT. Here’s a tip from a mom who’s been there: don’t actually tell the little ones what they’re eating. You don’t have to lie, but when I served this meal for the first time my kids looked at their plates and thought that they had seriously lucked out…HOTDOGS and RAVIOLI for dinner! I just didn’t correct them, and they happily finished their meals while reveling in their good fortune. I suppose a last-minute dinner from a bare refrigerator isn’t such a bad thing after all!
