Hamburger Helper Sushi Rolls

A crazy way to serve Hamburger Helper – rolled up like sushi!

Ingredients

1
package Betty Crocker™ Hamburger Helper™ cheeseburger macaroni
1
pound ground beef
3/4
cup water (less than package instructions)
2
cups milk
1
teaspoon unflavored gelatin
1
package Food Should Taste Good™ original sweet potato chips
15
green beans

Directions

  • 1 Blanch green beans by cooking in salted boiling water for about 5 minutes, straining, and then dipping into ice water for a few moments.
  • 2 Make your Hamburger Helper™ pretty much to the package instructions, but remember to use only 3/4 cup of water.
  • 3 Remove from heat and stir in the gelatin.
  • 4 Allow to cool in the fridge for about an hour.
  • 5 Lay the Hamburger Helper™ flat on a piece of plastic wrap. You'll need to do this 2 or 3 times to use all of it.
  • 6 Top with the green beans and roll so the beans are in the center.
  • 7 Twist the ends to form a uniformly round log.
  • 8 Toss in the freezer for two hours until firm.
  • 9 Roll the round in crushed sweet potato chips.
  • 10 Slice into 1 inch rounds.
  • 11 Place on a plate and toss in the oven on the lowest possible setting for about 15 minutes.
  • 12 When the rolls are just warmer than room temperature serve with sriracha. Be careful not to heat the rolls too much or they will fall apart.

Hamburger Helper Sushi Rolls

As prepared by The Food in my Beard,

It’s fun to play with your food sometimes.


I particularly like taking some good old hearty comfort food (like mac and cheese, for instance) and dressing it up to make it seem classy or elegant. In this case, the target was Hamburger Helper, so I rolled it up to look like a fresh rolled piece of sushi! These cute little rolls would be the hit of any party.

But how can you achieve such a feat? Hamburger Helper is thick, but not THAT thick. I employed two little tricks to get it into the shape I wanted: a pinch of unflavored gelatin, and the good old freezer!

Want to impress your friends with a new twist on a classic? Try out this Hamburger Helper Sushi Roll recipe!

 

Making Hamburger Helper

Start by making Hamburger Helper according to the box instructions.

 

Use half the amount of water the recipe calls for

Well, almost. Use half the amount of water from the package.

 

Stirring in a teaspoon of unflavored gelatin

After it is done and off the heat, stir in a teaspoon of unflavored gelatin.

 

Blanched and shocked green beans

Blanch and shock some green beans and set aside for later (boil in salted water for about 5 minutes, strain, and dip in some ice water).

 

Hamburger Helper and green beens ready to roll into sushi

When the Hamburger Helper is cooled to room temperature (about an hour), lay out a rectangle on plastic wrap. Top with your green beans.

 

Hamburger Helper and green beens rolled into cylinder

Roll into a tight cylinder.

 

Hamburger Helper and green beens in cylinder, out of freezer after two hours

After a few hours in the freezer it will be an almost rock hard log.

 

Coating sushi cylinder with sweet potato chips

Cut off the ends, and coat in some potato chips.

 

Hamburger Helper Sushi Rolls, ready to eat

Slice it up the rest of the way and lay them out on a plate. Don’t eat them frozen though! Pop the whole plate into the oven at the lowest possible setting. Cook about 15 minutes until it is just warmer than room temperature. Warning: there is a fine line where these will become too soft to pick up with chopsticks or your fingers. At room temperature they will be fine, and slightly warmer is ok too, but any hotter and they will start to fall apart.

 

It is sushi, after all!
