box (6.6 oz) Betty Crocker™ Hamburger Helper™ cheeseburger macaroni
cup water (less than package instructions)
teaspoon unflavored gelatin
package Food Should Taste Good™ original sweet potato chips
Blanch green beans by cooking in salted boiling water for about 5 minutes, straining, and then dipping into ice water for a few moments.
Make your Hamburger Helper™ pretty much to the package instructions, but remember to use only 3/4 cup of water. Remove from heat and stir in the gelatin.
Allow to cool in the fridge for about an hour.
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. Top with the green beans and roll so the beans are in the center.
Twist the ends to form a uniformly round log.
Toss in the freezer for two hours until firm.
Roll the round in crushed sweet potato chips.
Slice into 1-inch rounds, and place on a plate and toss in the oven on the lowest possible setting for about 15 minutes.
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.
