  • Yup. You can do that. It would taste different, but in some cases maybe even better.

  • Sure you can do it. I've used Italian sausage in the Italian flavored mixes. Works great.

  • I've never done it in hamburger helper, but I've done it in other things. I like using it instead of burger, it adds a whole new dimension of flavor.
