As food prices continue to soar, I am more convinced now than ever that given the right recipes, we can cook a wonderful meal from scratch at home and have it on the table in the time it would take to decide on a restaurant or take-out, drive there, place the order, wait for it, pay for it and drive back home. The operative words here are “the right recipes.”
Today, I want to share with you my family’s favorite “right recipes,” each one built on one pound of ground beef (or ground turkey) using very few, if any, processed ingredients—plus my recipe for Master Mix! That will make sense as soon as you check out the first recipe below, Upside-Down Hamburger Pie.
If you can get the meat on sale, fabulous. But if not—and even if you opt for a $6 pound of lean organic ground beef—each of these entrees will still come in at less than $10 total, and feed six hungry people. That’s less than $1.75 per serving.
See what I mean? Cheap, fast … good!
