Larry the Cable Guy Triple Cheese Cheeseburger Dinner

This dinner may not give you a small-town accent, but it will satisfy your stomach for the entire day/night.

If you remember way back in 2004, comedian Larry the Cable Guy was part of the Blue Collar Tour with other small-town jokesters like Jeff Foxworthy. Later then, Larry the Cable Guy started doing commercials related to philanthropy. As the years went on, I hadn't noticed there existed a product with his name on it until recently this 2021 year. I do want to give a shoutout to my former high school classmate Brenden Greco when one of our teachers asked who we thought was one of the funniest people we enjoyed listening to and/or watching that time. Why? Brenden, out loud, answered "Larry the Cable Guy!" That response stuck with me after high school, and here we are!

Immediately, you'll think this is just another imitation of the famous Hamburger Helper, and while you are correct, the preparation for this dinner isn't any different. In my technique, I prepare the pasta separately—that is, using another pot to boil the pasta, before adding it to the sauce mixture. While theoretically (yes, I said that) you can cook the uncooked pasta in the sauce to tenderize, I find that it takes longer. Also, given that this is pasta, it eats up liquid, causing the sauce to dry up. This requires adding more water and milk into the mixture which may loosen out the flavors from the packet included with it. All this was mentioned on the back of the box, and while following the instructions is fine, I'd recommend cooking the pasta in boiling water separately, then marrying them together once it's cooked: Draining and pouring the cooked pasta into the finished sauce.

I love the taste of this. It seems to be a little less salty than the popular brand mentioned above. The tender flavors of the cheeseburger really brightens up the ground meat (assuming you've cooked it thoroughly). It's a skillet dinner that'll satisfy your stomach for the rest of the day/night. Even for a big foodie like myself, who eats large portions, this meal will make your stomach smile. Heck, eating this for lunch will last you through your entire school/work day. It's very simple and very delicious, and it still tastes great as a leftover the next day.

I can't think of any critiques about this product, but purchasing this does go to a good cause—the Git-R-Done Foundation. With that said, not only are you helping the foundation that Larry the Cable Guy is behind, but you're getting a simple meal fit for your hunger. It's delicious and we highly recommend it! (Since my sister is a huge Charles Barkley fan, we hope "The Chuckster" gets a chance to try out some of Larry's food products, since Barkley lists Larry the Cable Guy as one of the funniest comedians ever.)
