Hamburger Buddy

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

Your rating: None Average: 3.5 (872 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.

When I made this, I quartered the mushrooms, and chopped the carrots into about 1/2 inch pieces. My kids aren't finicky about vegetables, and they loved this. The pasta was not mushy at all. My 15 year old licked his bowl and said it as a keeper, and so did DH. And, this recipe is a core recipe if you are doing that program on weight watchers! Definitely going into my recipe collection.

A big hit! I followed the recipe, with the exception of adding 1/2 cup of grated cheddar cheese near the end of cooking. My BF raved over this, and I really enjoyed it too. It will certainly become a part of our regular meal rotation, and I'm going to share the recipe with the rest of my family.

I just used whatever vegetables I had on hand and finely chopped by hand rather than use the food processor. It was a good way to sneak in the veggies my kids wouldn't normally eat. It was an easy meal and everyone liked it, except for my daughter who never enjoys the flavor of thyme, so for her I might try a different herb next time (oregano, maybe?).

My family loved it. I thought it was great. It made great leftovers for lunches, too. It felt good knowing all those veggies were tucked away inside. A keeper!

If it was possible to give this a negative rating I would. I followed the recipe exactly. It was sooooo bland. I do agree with one of the earlier reviewers, it is a versatile recipe and one that can be doctored up. I have made numerous recipes from site and this is the first that has been disappointing. I don't believe that I'll make this one again.
