In a hurry and you’re looking at a pound of ground beef and have no idea what to make?
Hamburgers are a good idea but you have no buns…You just had spaghetti the night before. Meat loaf sounds great but not enough time…correction…but you do!!!
This happened to me, it was 5 o’clock and my husband asked me what is for dinner. I stared at the thawed out ground beef and said I’m not sure!! I really was in the mood for meatloaf. As I started mixing all the ingredients I thought what if I make it into hamburger patties, the cooking time was 10 minutes instead of 1 1/2 to 2 hours. It was a perfect solution and turned out great. I threw a few potatoes in the microwave, roasted some veggies and dinner was done! Here’s my quick meatloaf recipe:
- 1 lb. ground beef
- 1/2 diced onion sautéed in oil with a bay leaf until translucent
- Worcestershire sauce
- about a cup of bread crumbs
- about 1/4 cup of milk
- 1 egg
- salt and pepper
Mix all ingredients well and form into patties. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees until brown and cooked thru. About 5 to 10 minutes on each side. For added flavor I brushed masterpiece steak marinade on each side will baking.
