Hamburger Buddy

September/October 2007, EatingWell for a Healthy Heart Cookbook (2008)

Your rating: None Average: 3.5 (851 votes)

Very finely chopping onion, mushrooms and carrots in the food processor is not only fast—it makes the vegetables hard to detect for picky eaters. They also form the base for the sauce of this ground beef skillet supper. Make it a meal: Serve with a green salad.

Threw the whole thing in the garbage!!

I have NEVER had a recipe that I just threw in the garbage after tasting it. Waaaaay too much Thyme. The meat and veggies turned into a big mushy mess. The whole dish had zero flavor to it. GROSS GROSS GROSS!!!

It was easy to make.

Just Not Comforting

I had high hopes for this dish. It looked and sounded scrumptious but the result was just sub-par. The taste was just not really held on together with the meat and the veggies. I can't describe it well but my husband said it was the result of trying to make a meal too healthy. It sure looked wonderful as I took it out of the oven...

looks good, healthy

Yummy - Hit the spot with goodness

This was a great meal however I made a few additions... I added finely pureed fresh spinach and pureed fresh tomatoes - no mushrooms! I also substituted the noodles for quinoa noodles...this dish came out awesome however it was low on flavor - next time I may add crushed red pepper and extra fresh pepper, maybe even some jalapeño juice to give it a little kick but overall it was delicious and a big hit with the hubby! Get creative and enjoy...

Veggies and more veggies!
