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~
Definitly! Also spaghetti sauce, add hamburger, sauce, spices, etc etc. It will double and possibly triple is size then it can be stored in the freezer and used later on. American Chop Souy. Great Ideas!!
Wow! This sounds fantastically yummy and so economical! You should make a recipe hub for this one! Great answer, thanks!
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!
