Simple Hamburger Recipes - Cheap & Delicious Meals
Simple hamburger recipes are becoming very popular again, particularly with the cost of food rising.
I'll try to bring you some of the best tasting, easy to make simple recipes I can find so you can start becoming creative with hamburger.
The first simple hamburger recipe is:
Baked Macaroni & Cheese with Hamburger
This is as simple as it gets.
1 box Kraft Macaroni & Cheese
1 pound lean hamburger
4 slices Velveeta Cheese
Brown the hamburger and drain the grease. If you want less grease, place the hamburger in boiling water and brown. I do this many times in different meals. Dump the water. I also like to reach in by hand when I put the hamburger into the water and break it up thoroughly. Of course, do this before it starts boiling. :-)
Make the macaroni & cheese as per the directions on the box however, double the amount of milk. When you are done, thoroughly mix in the hamburger.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Dump the macaroni mixture into a glass baking pan and layer the Velveeta cheese. Place in the oven for about 20 minutes.
You can use another cheese but Velveeta really adds a flavor you are going to love.
Here is a hamburger recipe based on the famous meatlof you find at the Boston Market. I know you are going to enjoy this.
Boston Market Meatloaf
1 cup tomato sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons Kraft original barbecue sauce
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1-1/2 pounds ground sirloin (10 percent fat)
6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
dash garlic powder
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2. Combine the tomato sauce, barbecue sauce, and sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat. Heat the mixture until it begins to bubble, stirring often, then remove it from the heat.
3. In a large bowl, add all but 2 tablespoons of the tomato sauce to the meat. Use a large wooden spoon or your hands to work the sauce into the meat until it is very well combined.
4. Combine the remaining ingredients with the ground sirloin - flour, salt, onion powder, ground pepper, and garlic powder. Use the wooden spoon or your hands to work the spices and flour into the meat.
5. Load the meat into a loaf pan (preferably a meatloaf pan with two sections that allows the fat to drain, but if you don't have one of those a regular loaf pan will work). Wrap foil over the pan and place it into the oven for 30 minutes.
6. After 30 minutes, take the meatloaf from the oven, remove the foil and, if you aren't using a meatloaf pan, drain the fat.
7. Using a knife, slice the meatloaf all the way through into 8 slices while it is still in the pan. This will help to cook the center of the meatloaf. Pour the remaining 2 tablespoons of sauce over the top of the meatloaf, in a stream down the center. Don't spread the sauce.
8. Place the meatloaf back into the oven, uncovered, for 25 - 30 minutes or until it is done. Remove and allow it to cool for a few minutes before serving.
