ISO Cooked ground beef ideas

Got about a pound of already cooked ground beef, the other pound was used in a tomato sauce and pasta casserole. Ideas? I'd also like to make something with sweet potatoes as a side, so something that might go with that.

Saute some chopped vidalia onions in some butter until translucent, add the cooked hamburger, stir in some flour, salt and pepper and cook for a few minutes to cook out the raw flour taste, slowly add some milk to make a gravy. Serve over toast or biscuits. Great for anytime of the day!

Why not make it into a cottage pie, using a sweet potato mash on top.

Add onions, garlic, and taco seasoning for tacos, taco salad, enchilada filling, or Mexican lasagna.

Make a pot pie!!! Seriously, get some peas and an onion. Make a rhue (saute onions in butter and add flour and milk with some salt and pepper) then add the peas and your hamburger to a pie crust.

Did that once when my parents called home and said "ummm, we're hungry make something" It was my senior year and I didn't have a car and all we had in the house was some flour, a can of peas, half an onion, half gallon of milk, ONE chicken breast and a pie crust.... i think there was probably a can of spinach too, but that would have been weird. anyway they went nuts over it and have asked for it again...... happiness abounds
