I have 2 men in my home, and they both love meat. Whether it's chicken, beef, pork, or lamb they love it! But meat can be expensive when you serve it daily. So I have decided that to save money on meats, I would try different recipes with less meat then called for to see if the guys would notice.
Now, if you are making a roast or fried chicken, obviously you cannot use less or they will notice. But if you are making something like Hamburger Helper or stir fry, you can use up to half the meat called for and they don't know! I add extra veggies or noodles and they never notice. This way instead of 1 dinner for a pound of chicken or ground meat, I get 2.
