Hamburger Gnocchi

We’ll call this “Boujee Hamburger Helper”!

My favorite thing about Hamburger Helper is that it tastes just as good, if not better, as leftovers. This recipe is no different!

This is a creamy, flavorful recipe that the whole family will enjoy!


Prep Time  10 minutes

Cook Time  35  minutes

Serves 4 people 


  • 1 Package Dry Gnocchi
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb hamburger meat
  • 1 jalapeno, finely chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 large yellow onion, diced
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 3 oz (1/2 can) of tomato paste
  • 2 tbsp yellow mustard
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomato, lightly drained
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese
  • 1 stalk green onion, finely chopped


  1. Swirl 1 tbsp olive oil around in a large skillet over medium high. In a single layer, add gnocchi to the pan. Allow to toast for 3-4 minutes, flip, and allow other side to toast for another 3 minutes. Remove from skillet and set aside.
  2. Over medium high heat, add remaining olive oil and bell pepper, and diced onion to the skillet. Cook until onionis translucent and bell pepper is tender but not soft, about 3 minutes.
  3. Add in minced garlic and chopped jalapeno. Cook until fragrant, about 30-45 seconds.
  4. Add beef to the vegetable mixture in the skillet, and stirring occasionally, cook until meat is browned.
  5. Stir in tomato past and mustard until combined.
  6. Pour in diced tomato, and stir to combine.
  7. Add gnocchi to the pan, and pour in vegetable broth. Bring to a boil, and then reduce heat to low/medium-low. Cover, and stirring occasionally, let simmer until at least 1/2 of the broth has evaporated, or about 10 minutes.
  8. Add in heavy cream and cheddar cheese. Stir to combine.
  9. Serve topped with chopped green onion.
