This recipe is for a family of four. You could always make a smaller one by just having one can of sauce and one can of crescent rolls.
This recipe looks good and taste great. this is a confort food we use to eat.
Lightly brown the chuck; drain off fat. Mix ground chuck with the other ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 3-4 hours.
Steam beef in double boiler, medium heat for 1 hour. Drain beef and add seasonings. Serve on large buns as a sandwich.
This is economical to make. Evenly divide the meat and shape into 4 oblong (oval) patties. Flatten with hands and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Mix ingredients through onion together in skillet:Cook until hamburger and onion are done. Let cool while you prepare biscuit dough.
In large saucepan, cook beef, onion, and garlic till beef is browned and onion is tender. Stir in minestrone soup, pork and beans, 3 cups water, celery, Worcestershire sauce, and oregano.
This is my favorite comfort food and to this day, when I am feeling blue, I make it and feel better. Make beef into thick patties and fry until done to your preference.
Cook meat and vegetables until meat is browned. Drain off fat. Add remaining ingredients, mix well. Cover. Simmer 20 minutes. Serve on hamburger buns.

Does anyone have any recipes for ground meat, besides hamburgers, spaghetti, or meatloaf? I want to try something new.

Have you tried casseroles? This is something I throw together when I'm busy and don't want to stand over the stove in the evening. If I have a project I'm going to be working on, I prepare this in the morning, put it in the fridge and pop it in the oven for supper.
Brown hamburger with chopped onion.
Make a box off Mac and Cheese.
Add hamburger mixer to the prepared Mac and Cheese.
Add a can of cream of anything, chicken or mushroom soup, what ever you have on hand.
Add how ever many slices of cheese you want.
I add a little canned stewed tomatoes, only I make sure the tomatoes are good and smooshed.
Add some salt and pepper (I usually add that to the meat as it's browning)
Spray a casserole dish, pour in the mixture. Cube up any stale bread you have, spread the cubes over the mixture, melt some butter and pour it over the bread. Bake at 350 until it's bubbly and the bread and butter has browned.
When I was growing up, we didn't have large freezer bags so we froze our hamburger in a lump wrapped in foil. When we would forget to thaw it out for dinner that night, we would have a boiled dinner. Bring a large pot of seasoned water to a boil. Drop in the frozen hamburger and then some potatoes, onions, and carrots. Bring back to a boil and turn down to a slow boil. When the lump of hamburger looks like the outside is cooked, poke it with a large meat fork occasionally being careful not to break up the lump.
When the veggies are tender and the juices run clear when the hamburger is pierced, the hamburger is done.
Gently remove the hamburger and veggies. Add more water if needed, bring back to a boil and drop a box of spaghetti into the pot. Cook until tender. The hamburger will slice like a meatloaf. I like to add a little Worcestershire sauce or steak sauce to my slice of meat.
We also made chili veggie soup with hamburger. Brown the hamburger and make the soup like normal. Add a chili roll and very small head of chopped cabbage. Very comforting on a cold, winter evening. Good luck.
How about Salisbury Steak? It's one of my family's favorites.
I serve it with mashed potatoes because a nice sauce remains from the golden mushroom soup in the pan. I use very lean beef, so the sauce isn't greasy. Add a side of corn or coleslaw - delish!
This is a link to the one I make, however, there are many, many versions from baked to broiled.
Brown around a pound of ground beef, drain, add a small pack of frozen peas (preferable to defrost them first), a can of mushrooms, and a small can of tomato sauce, mix well, cover, reduce heat, and cook for 15 mins. Serve over rice or in pita bread.
I am looking for easy meals made with hamburger.

Looking for a recipe someone told me about but can't remember all of it. It has hamburger, cheese and egg in it and is layered on toast and baked in the oven, if I remember right. Does this ring a bell to anyone?
Have you tried www.allrecipes.com? You can search for recipes by ingredients. I found quite a few similar to what you're after. The first time I searched, I didn't find anything except burgers, but then instead of using the word hamburger, I used the word pork sausage. In fact, I made the easy sausage strata for Christmas morning breakfast, and it was easy AND good.
Years ago, I was taught a recipe by a single male friend he called "dogfood":
12 slices toast
1 lb hamburger
cream of mushroom soup
6 slices cheese
fry hamburger (w/ diced onions & peppers, if desired); stir in 1 or 2 tbs mustard. Layer 6 slices toast in a 9 x 13 pan; distribute burger mixture evenly over. Top w/ cheese, then other 6 toast. Mix soup, eggs, and about 1/2 can milk together. Pour over layers, trying to coat each one evenly. Cover w/ foil & bake 350 about 45 min. Uncover (add more cheese on top if wanted) & bake 15 min (or so) till brown on top.

This is a joint recipe from my mother-in-law and myself. When I visit her in England, I always prefer to eat her foods over going out. Thankfully, we make a great team in the kitchen! We made this bolognese after going hiking and it really hit the spot. Even though it's super meaty, it's got loads of veggies and herbs, so it's quite refreshing.
