Years and years ago when my kids still all lived at home I bought a Taste of Home Ground Beef Recipe Collection magazine. I have used this more than any other recipe book I have.
At the time the guys had dairy cows at the farm. If one of the cows had an injury that wasn’t going to heal the guys would take the cow to the locker and they would be processed into hamburger. This happened often enough that we ALWAYS had free ground beef in our freezer as Hubby’s boss gave us all we wanted as part of Hubby’s wages. As much as we had, we never tired of ground beef. It’s so versatile and this magazine helped me make it seem like we weren’t constantly eating hamburger. No joking…at our house supper consisted of some type of hamburger dish at least 6 days a week. Any other type of beef, chicken or fish was an unusual treat!
Notice it is so beaten up the cover is gone!!
A family favorite from the magazine is Beef Stroganoff Sandwich.
It’s super easy to make..and tasty too. Back when I first started making it I often did some one day prepping meals day. This worked great for that. I’d prep the hamburger mix on Sunday night and then sometime later in the week I’d quick put it all together and pop it in the oven.
At the time, I could get French Bread for a $1 a loaf…add some free hamburger and ingredients to make a super cheap meal that could feed us all!
If you’re wondering what it all looks like when finished…here it is!
This is how it looks….nothing glamorous but super tasty. This time we were having guests and I didn’t know if everyone liked peppers so one has peppers…one doesn’t.
Just for reference…the longer the bread stays in the oven the crispier it gets. So…if you don’t like crispy, then only keep it in the oven long enough to melt the cheese.
In the upcoming month I’ll show you some more of the recipes from the magazine that have become family staples….pick up some hamburger as they are all awesome recipes and really easy.
