What else to do with Ground Beef?

Sorry if this has already been posted--But what else do you make with ground beef besides taco salad and hamburgers? It's so cheap and I'm on such a tight budget right now I need more ideas. Please post ideas and recipes here it would be much appreciated. Thanks!!

Joe's Special (old recipe... I believe Dana Carpenter has a version in her 500 Recipes book)

Dottie's Burger Scramble Florentine.

Meatballs

Meat sauce - like spaghetti sauce, but REALLY heavy on the meat! Use over green beans, zucchini noodles, low-carb pasta, or just eat by itself...

Chili

Meatza - pizza crust made with ground beef

My favorite way to eat ground beef is with sauteed cabbage. I usually cut up a small head of cabbage and sautee it in oil or butter, season it with salt, pepper, garlic and onion (sometimes) and add the browned ground beef. I will add any and all veggies to it also...whatever I have on hand. It is DELICIOUS! I also like the quiches made with ground beef. I have gotten to really like ground beef since I am also on a VERY tight budget and have been for some time now.

WOE: My Own Type Of Low Carb

chili is always good

I made deep fried meatballs the other day and they were great and different than regular meatballs.

I make different types of stuffed burgers, using two patties and filling one with cheese, jalepenos, onions, anything you like (just about) and then putting the other one on top and sealing the edges and either fry, bake, or broil. Sometimes I make alfredo sauce as a topper.

I like to use the spaghetti squash and make mock spaghetti also.

You can stuff zucchini with a hamburger and cheese mixture (cook hamburger meat first) and make a tomato sauce for the top. Bake them until zucchini are tender.

I make beef stroganoff without the noodles.

Sweedish meatballs.

When I'm energetic and just for fun, I make the individual meatloaves in muffin tins and make each one a little different by changing the ingredients that I add to it. It's a little more trouble, but nice to have different tasting meatloaves.

Stuffed peppers - bell, ancho or poblano. Jalepenos also.

Hamburger stew/soup is great too.

If I think of anything else, I'll post it.

We had Impossible Lasagne Pie this past weekend.
Actually, I made a mistake and put the crushed red pepper in the meat mixture before I realized it,
and had to make a 2nd casserole without the pepper for DBF.
He tried the plain version and said it was "ok".
Well, now there are 2 servings missing out of the pan with the hot pepper, and the plain one is GONE!!




Impossible Lasagne Pie

1/2 cup cottage cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 pound ground beef, browned and drained
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
6 ounces tomato paste

1 cup Carb Countdown 2%
2 eggs
2/3 cup Carbquick
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Preheat oven to 400F. Grease an 8-inch square pan; set aside.
Layer cottage cheese and Parmesan cheese in prepared pan.
Mix cooked beef, 1/2 cup of the mozzarella cheese, the oregano, basil and tomato paste;
spoon evenly over top.
Beat milk, eggs, baking mix, salt and pepper until smooth;
15 seconds in blender on high- or 1 minute with hand beater.
Pour into pan.
Bake until golden brown and knife inserted in center comes out clean, 30 to 35 minutes.
Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

Per Serving (based on 6 servings): 430 Calories; 31g Fat (62.0% calories from fat);
28g Protein; 14g Carbohydrate; 7g Dietary Fiber; 152mg Cholesterol; 1010mg Sodium.
