How can a young family starting out stretch a single pound of hamburger?


In our sparse economy these days, feeding a young family starting out seems to be getting more and more difficult. What is a great way to make a single pound of hamburger stretch enough to reduce the "grocery financial burden" for these new families?

    Bill Yovino~ I really like your idea of using ground turkey or pork instead of beef for greater savings! I have used a combination of turkey and beef, adding frugal aspects as well as that one-of-a-kind taste of beef. Thanks for your great comment!

    TripleAMom~ What a great idea! Getting those veggies in the chili bumps up the nutrition values significantly. Thank you for sharing your thoughts! Cheers~

    BSloan~ Wow! Some really great options here, thanks. I have never heard of stuffing eggs inside of meatloaf; may have to give that a try. I like the spaghetti casserole idea, too. Thanks for sharing your frugal food ideas for today's young family!
