Over a Cup of Coffee: Supper recipes using hamburger

Diane Prather

This week I tried a new recipe that I found in a periodical. It sounded good so I thought if it was good I’d try to get permission to reprint it in this column. It was a disappointment. So this week I found two recipes from my files that are good. I’ve made both of them several times.

Supper in a Skillet

1 pound ground beef

¼ cup chopped onion

1 regular size can tomatoes (14 ½ to 15 ounces)

1 cup water

2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

¼ teaspoon oregano

1 teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon pepper

2 cups (4 ounces) spaghetti, broken up

Brown ground beef and onion in a skillet. Drain. Add tomatoes, water, Worcestershire sauce, oregano, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil. Add the uncooked spaghetti. Cover and cook for 20 minutes or until the spaghetti is done. Serve with salad and garlic bread.

Easy Hamburger CasseroleEasy Hamburger Casserole

Easy Hamburger Casserole

1 ½ pounds hamburger

½ cup chopped onion

¼ cup chopped green pepper

1 can cream of chicken soup

1 cup canned tomatoes

1 cup macaroni

1 cup shredded sharp cheese

Salt and pepper to taste

Brown hamburger, onion, and green pepper and drain. Cook the macaroni until tender. Then put all of the ingredients together. Pour into a 9×13-onch baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees until the cheese melts and the ingredients are heated through. Stir while baking if you wish. Serve with green salad and bread.

I also make a casserole similar to “Easy Hamburger Casserole” (my own recipe) to use

leftover macaroni and cheese except that I don’t use the soup or shredded cheese. I use tomato sauce and cook the whole thing in a skillet. It’s a good way to use leftover macaroni and cheese.

Do you have recipes that you would like to share with readers? I’m always looking for side dishes to use with meats, especially grilled meats. Call me at 970-824-8809 or write to me at Box 415, Craig 81626.

Happy Mother’s Day.
