  1. Company casserole. Brown the meat. cook egg noodles. Add a block of cream cheese, 8 oz sour cream, 1 jar of spaghetti sauce of choice and season. Sprinkle with cheese and bake on 350 for 30 minutes. It’s really easy and tastes like lasagna

    Shepherds pie any Kind of cassoulet or one pan dish. You can fry it then add chopped onions potatoes and veggies I also add butter and salt and pepper

    Little muffin size meat loaf. You can make up a bunch at time. Freeze leftovers for second meal.

    I love my soups so I’d make a big pot of hamburger and cabbage soup. Can eat it for days or freeze for later

    Dirty rice. Just buy any box rice of your choosing, brown your hamburger meat and add to the rice as it cooking. Time saver tip: on your days off precook your hamburger meat , portion it out, freeze it and then you have one step already completed for your cooking during the week.

  6. Hamburger steaks in oven, pad a family pack out in a 9×13 pan season of choice on top of meat then put onion, sliced carrots I use out of a can, sliced potatoes I use out of can, season on top of that, cover and bake til meat is cooked. We usually do 2 pans, big hit in our house

    Green Chile Casserole

    1lb cooked hamburger
    1 small onion
    Half a block of velveeta
    1 can cream of chicken
    1 can pinto beans
    1 small can green Chile
    1/2 bag of tortilla chips
    Shredded cheese

    Cook hamburger meat with onion and season to taste then set aside. In a sauce pan add velveeta, green Chile cream of chicken soup, and one to 2 cans of water depending on how saucy you want it) stir until melted. Crush tortilla chips into the bottom of a casserole dish, add drained pinto beans, hamburger meat, add cheese sauce, and top with shredded cheese. Bake at 350 with foil for 30 to 40 minutes or until bubbly.

    I make my own hamburger helper. A box of shells n cheese, add the burger in and maybe a veggie. Boom. Good dinner. Add a slice of buttered bread or garlic bread and it’s delicious. Tacos are easy also.

    Easiest way I get dinner in the table is brown and drain 1 lb beef. Add in one can ranch style or pinto beans. Mix with beef and heat through. If you like a little spice add a can of tomatoes with green chilis. Serve with shredded cheddar and a dollop of sour cream. If I have avocados I slice and add on top. My 61 year old husband loves this either with all the extras or just plain meat and beans.

  10. Hamburger vegetable soup, shepherd’s pie, quesadillas, tacos, burritos, tostadas, nachos, potachos, smothered hamburger steaks with mashed potatoes and Texas toast

  11. Brown meat and drain. Cook egg noodles and drain. Dump 1 can cream of mushroom, 1 can cream of chicken, 1 can rotel, 1 can drained corn and 8oz of sour cream in to a 9×12 dish. Pour cooked meat and noodles over ingredients. Season with garlic powder, onion powder and nature’s seasoning. Mix all together. Cover and bake on 350 for 30 minutes.

    i made a mean shepherds pie today and used boxed potatoes lol. was prepped and in the oven in no time
    flat.

  13. I made ravioli lasagna.
    So easy.
    Cheese ravioli layers between meat sauce and shredded cheese like lasagna and baked.
    It doesn’t take long.
    I did it in the crock pot ( after meat was cooked) and it took about an hour total with frozen pasta

  14. Cheesy goulash: hamburger browned with onion, cooked elbow noodles, tomato soup, velveeta
    Hamburger stroganoff: hamburger browned with onion, cooked egg noodles, cream of mushrooms soup, sour cream
    Pizza Casserole: hamburger browned with onion, cooked rotini noodles, 2 jars pizza sauce,. Mix everything together and put in 9×13 dish, cover with pepperoni and shredded cheese bake at 350 for 35 minutes.

    Sauté burger. When almost done add onion and minced garlic, once that’s done add 2 tbsp flour and stir. Add broth about 2 cups, Italian seasoning, garlic salt, pepper, pasta (any kind and I don’t measure I just throw a couple big handfuls or a little more in) and stir, add 8 oz tomato sauce simmer until pasta is done. You may have a to add a little more broth if needed. Once done add heavy cream (about 1/2 cup) and any kind of cheese. Stir to melt cheese. My family loves this.

  16. If possible cook some meals ahead on your days off. Meatloaf, maybe a beef roast. These can be frozen after they are cooked. Freeze in meal size portions and take out of the freezer as you need them. Hard boil eggs keep refrigerated they are good for at least a week after boiling. Make egg salad add to tuna salad macaroni salad, pickle them, or just eat plain. Make a big pan of homemade mac and cheese the left overs are good for a second meal

    Brown the hamburger, add shredded cheese and tomato soup give a good mix, add in cooked pasta.

    Optional: put in casserole dish and cover in cheese, bake in oven until cheese is melted (or crispy-ish)

    I like to add onions and garlic to beef when its cooking and spice as desired.

  18. I prepare hamburgers and small meatballs on a a rainy day. A day off and chili Anyways I freeze these for busy days. Also lasagna , and cabbage rice hamburger casserole then each can be eaten at a later date.

  19. I buy the Velveeta sides for a simple back up meal. I found a Salisbury steak recipe (takes about 30 minute). I understand your pain. Up at 4, work 10.5 hours and try for bed at 8.

    My family called this Goulash growing up.

    Pound of ground beef browned with soy sauce and a dash of Worcestershire sauce plus your fave seasonings.
    Add cabbage and a tiny bit of water and then cover until cabbage is to desired tenderness.
    Cook rice and then mix all together add more soy and Worcester as desired.

    I’d say for every pound of ground beef should be 1 cup of rice.

    In a skillet brown hamburger meat drain fat, add 1 can of pork and beans plus 1/3 cup of brown sugar bring to boil them simmer serve with mashed potatoes

  22. Kelly Bakken Wallace

    I sometimes fry up the hamburger meat on my days off and freeze in zip lock bags for a quick dinner like taco salad, spaghetti, soup, etc.

  23. Goulash, season a pound of hamb with Italian seasoning, pour in 1-2 cans condensed tomato SOUP (do not add water) mix with elbow noodles. One of our family faves.

    Sloppy hamburg is my go too quick meal. I saute 1 diced onion pound of hamburger with whatever seasonings you like add a packet of brown gravy and serve over rice, mashed potatoes or egg noodles.

  25. Taco salad, tater tot casserole, hamburger stroganoff, hamburger gravy over mashed potatoes

  26. I love to take hamburger helper and add a spice to change it up. We used the cheeseburger Aldi brand helper, and add Curry powder!

  27. Kelly Martin Stauffer

    I saute onion and mushrooms, add the ground beef, cook till brown. Mix in a few slices of provolone and cook till melted. Serve on rolls. It’s like a cheap steak sandwich and my husband loves it

  28. Samantha Scott-O'Hara

    Loose meat sandwiches crumble, add slivered onions,pickles,salt and pepper to taste, brown,drain and serve on bread

  29. I think make ahead on a day off. Spend one day prepping several meals for the week. One meal would be mix hamburger with diced onions and peppers. (You can find them frozen pre cut.). Mix with burger meat and form steaks aka pepper steaks. Serve with instant garlic mashed potatoes peas and beef gravy. Simple and fast.

    You can make hamburger patties ahead of time and freeze them.

    I love hamburger patties with a side of macaroni and cheese and some green beans. I like all the different colors. And I think I like this combination because my babysitter used to feed us this when I was younger. It’s a happy memory for me.

  34. Make patties and fry in a skillet until almost done. Then mix 1 packet of onion soup mix, 1 Tbsp flour, 1 C water, and 1/2 C milk. Pour it over the patties. Bring it to a boil and then turn the heat down to simmer until the gravy thickens (about 10 min). It goes well with mashed potatoes or rice.
