Easy Hamburgers

by Heather

in Beef

My boys love my homemade hamburgers, and I love making them for them because they are super easy and much healthier than fast food restaurants because I used the 96% lean meat!  They are easily put together, cooked and then bagged up to be stored in the freezer for a quick meal on a night that we are on the go!

 

Ingredients:

1 lb ground beef (I used 96% lean)

1 egg

bread crumbs

garlic salt

pepper

 

In a large bowl, combine the meat, egg and bread crumbs.

Add garlic salt and black pepper to taste and then using your hands, begin to work the ingredient together.

Form into 6-8 hamburger patties (depending on the size of the burgers you desire).  Spray a large frying pan with cooking spray and cook the burgers on medium heat.  Allow to cook on one side for 7-8 minutes and only flip once.

Once burgers have been cooked through, serve on a bun with cheese and whatever toppings you like!

Additional burgers can be stored in resealable plastic bags and stored in the freezer for dinner another night!

Next, chop the onion and green pepper.

Add the onions and green pepper to a large soup pot along with the vegetable oil.  Cook until softened, and then add the pork mixture.  Cook the pork until cooked through.

Cheeseburger Soup

in Soups

This is a great way to trick the kids into eating their veggies!  Chocked full of vegetables with a great cheesy, creamy taste!

 

Ingredients:

1 lb ground beef

1 cup chopped onion

1 cup sliced carrots

2 tbsp butter

4 cups diced potatoes

1/2 pkg frozen corn

1/2 pkg frozen peas

1/4 tsp celery salt

1 tsp basil

1/4 tsp parsley

1/4 tsp garlic salt

1/4 cup flour

3 cans chicken broth

1/4 tsp paprika

16 oz Velvetta cheese

1/4 cup sour cream

salt/pepper to taste

 

First, chop the onion and carrot and saute them on medium heat in a large soup pot with the 2 tbsp. of butter.

Next, add the ground beef to the onions and carrots and cook until no longer pink.

While the meat is cooking, peel and dice the potatoes.

Once the meat has cooked through, drain off any excess fat juices.  Return to the burner and add the basil.  Stir it through.

Next, add the flour and the chicken broth.  Stir well until the flour dissolves.

Now it is time to add the diced potatoes.

Add the frozen vegetables (no need to thaw them beforehand)

Finally, add the rest of the seasonings and stir well.

Increase the heat to high and once the soup has come to a boil, reduce the heat back to low and place the lid on it.  Allow to cook for 30 minutes.  After the 30 minutes, it is time to add the sour cream and the Velvetta cheese.  I like to cut the Velvetta up in smaller blocks to help it melt faster.

Stir to mix.  Make sure the cheese and the sour cream have melted before serving!

Whatever leftovers can be stored in a freezer safe plastic container and placed in the freezer for dinner another night!

I could probably eat at least a dozen of these things, although I don’t believe that would be so great for my girlish figure!  These things taste just like the ones Red Lobster serves and they are so simple to make!

 

Ingredients:

2 cups Bisquick

2/3 cup milk

1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1 tsp garlic salt

1 tsp parsley

1/4 cup butter – melted

1/4 cup sour cream

 

First, preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  In a large bowl, add the milk to the Bisquick.

Then add the cheese, butter, sour cream and seasonings.

Mix well – it will be a thick, gooey mixture.

Spray cooking spray on a cookie sheet and spoon out small golf-ball sized balls of the dough mixture.

Bake for 10 minutes.  Remove from the oven and use a basting brush to brush on some melted butter to the top of the biscuits.

Eat them while they’re hot!

IF you have any of these yummy biscuits left, you can store them in resealable plastic bags and pop them in the freezer!
