Hamburger Buddy

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

Your rating: None Average: 3.5 (833 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.

This recipe is pretty bland except for the harsh taste of too much thyme.

I love this recipe. I didn't use thyme in the recipe and I used frozen chopped vegetables (more convenient for me). Besides that, I followed the recipe and added salt to taste. It's my first time eating whole wheat pasta and I like it. This is the third recipe I do from your magazine and instead of buying the mag on newsstands once in a while, I'll subscribe today.

My husband and I are trying to eat heathier and I came across this one-pot meal (great for a work night). We were very surprised on how good this tasted. I followed another's suggestion and chopped the vegetables instead of the vegetables being put in the food processor. My husband is a picky eater and he said he would eat this again! Thank you.

I suppose I ought to preface this by saying I made a tomato version, but this was just ok. I had high hopes (we like the packaged "hamburger buddy"), and wished other reviewers were just being picky, but it's not that great. We'll definitely eat it, but I don't think I'll be making it again, or at least not very regularly.
