From time to time, I get meat from my local food bank. I realized I’ve been remiss of including some wonderful, wholesome dinner recipes to these archives. I do have several low cost, filling, healthy recipes to add. They are full of flavor, and will cost you little at the grocery store.
A recent roll of a 10 pound ground beef, given to me by a food pantry, sparked me to share this recipe that I’ve made frequently in the past. All you have to do is mash some potatoes or boil noodles to add all that is necessary to this main event. I’ve found it easiest to search circulars such as: Food Lion , Save A Lot , Winn Dixie , and such on Wednesdays to see the upcoming sales and buy in bulk. This stretches the dollar especially on meat sales.
1 pd. ground beef
1/3 Bread Crumb Recipe (Under Cracker Recipes)
3/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 large onion sliced thin
1/2 cup mushrooms
