Meatloaf is one of my favorites...there are many recipes here, or just Google meatloaf.
Hamburger soup is another idea...Brown the ground beef with onions, discard grease, and proceed as you would for vegetable beef soup.

We get by with a little help from our friends

Silly girl - You ask a silly question. What can't you make with hamburger other than a tuna sandwich?

If you are still in need, send me an email/or post, and I'll reply with a link to a thousand recipes, or just laugh with you, and provide a small number of recipes myself :-)


If eating tasty stuff is a sin, I am certainly going south.

In a skillet fry ground beef and a diced onion until done.
In another skillet fry diced potatoes until tender.
Mix cooked ground beef and cooked diced potatoes in one skillet.
Add green beans and any seasonings you like and cook on low stirring occassionally. Do not drain any fat from cooked ground beef because you will need to add a little flour and water or milk to make a gravy within the meal.
When meal is done pour over bread or toast.

Mmmm, Mmmm, Mmmm! Delicious!
Eat, Drink, Laugh and be Happy.

Well I could make a hundred or more meals out of hamburger, but to be healthy is more difficult We had many when I was dieting, but here are two examples:

Aunt Fannie's Dinner (don't know who Aunt Fannie is)

1/3 C Uncooked Elbow Macaroni
1 lb hamburger (lower fat if you like)
1/2 med onion, chopped
1/2 med green pepper, chopped
8 oz Tom Sauce
Med can Italian Diced Tomatoes (regular will work, just add more Basil & Oregano)
1 Can Whole Kernel Corn
S&P, Basil, & Oregano

Brown beef, tenderize onions, and add seasoning to taste (more is better in this recipe to me) in skillet. Then add tomatoes, corn, and tomato sauce. Simmer, then add macaroni's until they are cooked to your taste.

Beef & Parm Pasta

1 lb hamburger (again can be lean)
14 oz Beef broth/base
14 oz Italian Diced Tomatoes
1 1/3 C uncooked Bowtie pasta
1 1/3 C Sliced zucchini
1/2 C grated parmesan cheese
1/2 C onion, chopped
1/2 C green pepper, chopped
Oregano, Basil, Garlic, Salt, Pepper

Brown burger, tenderize onions & peppers in deep 10" skillet. Add tomatoes, zucchini, seasoning. Reduce, then add pasta and cook until pasta is tender. Add Parmesan to top just before serving.

Start by breaking down the hamburger into it's molecular elements then recombine them into anything you want. My choices would be either a flying car or a clone of albert Einstein.
No matter how many Bibles he swears on, when a dog tells you he's a vegetarian, he's lying.

Make some meat balls with sauted onion, fresh herbs,like parsley and basil both fresh and chopped fine, some crushed garlic several eggs and milk and some parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Bake in oven til done then put on a soft french roll along with your favorite cheese..If you have some marinara warm it and put a little on the sandwich and enjoy.

OK.. in a skillet fry up the hamburger with some onion. When that is about done drop in some mushrooms an garlic. Let the finish up. Drain off most of the liquid. Sprinkle lightly with flour and fry a bit, add some milk and allow to thicken.

On a cookie sheet, take the pieces of dough from a tube of crescent rolls.
Separate into two even piles. Take half and make a single sheet of dough, do the same with the other so you 2 separate sheets of dough.

Spoon the meat mixture on one of the sheets, cover with the other and seal the edges. Pop in a 350 degree oven until golden brown.
