Hamburger Buddy

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

Your rating: None Average: 3.5 (844 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.

"Total comfort food! I've made this dish several times now. My partner actually requests it! My modifications were based upon many suggested by other reviewers: Chop and shred your veggies for the texture, splash of red wine added...

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.

This recipe has been a hit with every audience I've made it for... from mushroom-haters & non-veggie-eaters to nutritionists!

This was one of the worse recipes I have ever made. I made it to take to work and none of my coworkers would eat it after the initial taste. I thought I followed the recipe precisely but thought there was too much thyme and not a good taste. My husband wouldn't eat it either and I put it down the garbage disposal. I usually like your recipes and have made many of them but this was definitely bad!
