My dad loves hamburger, anything hamburger. We're getting a bit tired of hamburgers, chili, stuffed peppers, etc. Anymore suggestions?

Louisiana meat pies. Just season your meat really good with Tony's and brown, drain really well, then saute' onion, bell pepper, celery, and garlic in a little water. Then mix and let simmer with a few bullion cubes and a little water. (make meat well ahead of time and let cool)
My family loves these. (04/18/2009)
This is quite easy and quite good, I don't go by a recipe I just wing it, you can change the amounts to your liking.
Onion Burgers in Gravy
Mix all ingredients except the gravy. Form into large patties. Fry. When done, remove burgers from pan and pour off grease. Add the gravy to the pan, stir to get the residue from the pan mixed into the gravy. Return burgers to pan, cover and let simmer about a half hour, turning patties half way through. (you can broil your burgers if you don't like fried)
What about tacos, spaghetti, Sloppy Joes, shepherd's pie, or meatloaf? I don't really go by recipes for those.
Here is one my husband likes. This one is made from basic pantry staples.
Country Style Skillet Dinner
I haven't made this one in a while so I don't remember, but you might need to watch and add some water during the noodle cooking time.

I mix hamburger with crumbled crackers and 1 egg. Shape into patties and wrap a piece of bacon around the edge. Bake until done and bacon is crispy. (04/19/2009)

I make hamburger pie. I fry the hamburger then drain and make mashed potatoes, then I put the hamburger in casserole dish. I then add a can of corn or any vegetables you like on top then spread the mashed potatoes on it and sprinkle with shredded cheese and seasoning. Bake at 350 until nice and hot all the way through and cheese is melted. My family loves it. (04/19/2009)
Mushroom meatballs have been a family favorite at my house for years.
Mix all, but soup and water. Shape into meatballs, put in single layer in 9 X 13 inch pan. Stir soup and water together. Pour over meatballs, cover and bake 350 degrees for 1 hour. The sauce can be used as gravy over mashed potatoes or over rice.
My mother-in-law makes this Mexican cornbread, the whole clan loves it.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix cornmeal, baking soda, and salt. Add milk, eggs, corn, peppers, and oil.
Pour half in pan, then add in layers; beef, onion, cheese. Add remaining cornmeal mixture and bake 45 minutes. (This recipe does not specify what size pan to use.)
Top any meatloaf with this and you have something special, very good.
Stir together and spread on any meatloaf 10 minutes before meatloaf is finished baking. Bake uncovered 10 minutes.
I don't know whether or not she knew what she was talking about, but many moons ago a friend gave me this recipe and said it was a Girl Scout campfire recipe. Sounds strange, but tastes good.
Girl Scout Recipe
Cook the hamburger, onion, and green pepper until browned. Drain. Stir in the beans and serve over slices of bread. (04/21/2009)
A very simple recipe is to lightly brown a pound of ground beef with an onion that is sliced thinly. Peel and slice 4 potatoes. Place a layer of beef, a layer of potatoes then 1/2 can of cream soup (mushroom, celery, cheddar). Repeat the layers. Cover with foil and bake at 350 for 1 hour. A quick version is to cook noodles and substitute them for the potatoes, then you only need to bake for 30 minutes.
A second favorite is to brown a pound of ground beef. Into a large pot add the beef, one onion diced, a can of corn, carrots, green beans (all drained first), 8 oz. of cooked pasta, and a jar of spaghetti sauce. Bake at 350 until heated through, about 30 minutes. Sprinkle on cheese and return to the oven until the cheese melts. What I do is save all my leftover veggies and freeze them and when I get the equivalent of about 5-6 cans of veggies I thaw and drain them and make the casserole. The only veggies that really don't work are like beets and sauerkraut. (04/22/2009)

Baked Taco Sandwich: Who says tacos have to be served in a taco shell? These tacos are like open-face sandwiches you eat with a fork. And you probably have all the ingredients you need on hand.
Dinner for two? There's no need to make a whole pan of lasagna.
I know you said no hamburgers, but this recipe is awesome just serve with mashed potatoes for a meal.

This is Chili Nacho Bake.
Heat oven to 350. Grease a 2-1/3 - 3 quart casserole. In a large skillet over medium heat, brown the ground beef in olive oil with the onions until the onions are lightly browned and the ground beef is no longer pink. Add the bell pepper and garlic and continue cooking, stirring for about 2-3 minutes until bell bell pepper is tender. Add pinto beans, tomatoes, chili powder and cumin. Cook, stirring, until hot and bubbly. Break tortilla chips into smaller pieces and put half of them in the bottom of the casserole. Spoon about half of the bean and beef mixture over the chips and sprinkle half of the cheese. Spoon the remaining bean and beef mixture over the cheese layer. Top with remaining chips and cheese. Bake for about 25 minutes or until bubbly and cheese has melted. Serves 6-8. (04/23/2009)
Easy Enchilada Casserole in this same newsletter. You could leave out the beans and double the meat. Still it is good. Today we had a second meal from it, topped with Mozzarella. Another thing to try is a box of Rice a Roni in layers with the beef, and I like it with a can of green beans mixed in. Good luck.
