Stretching Ground Meat

Mixing in non meat items with the meat can save you $$$.

To every pound of ground meat I am about to use or put into the freezer I add two large grated carrots, one large grated potato and one large grated onion.  I then add 1/2 cup soft bread crumbs or oatmeal.  The resulting mixture is then divided into thirds and each third is used in recipes calling for one pound of hamburger.

I have cut the cost of my ground beef by almost 66%.  The vegetables add flavor and moistness.  The soft bread crumbs or oatmeal adds bulk and substance.
