As part of a healthier eating plan I decided to cut down our meat consumption even further, especially when it comes to our red meats. So far we have been doing a good job as for the whole week we bought just 1/2 lb. hamburger, some ham and turkey for lunch meat, one package of hot dogs (for 4th of July), and one chicken breast. That meat will be all the meat we have eaten this week.
Last night I made bean burgers, which is a recipe I remember I ate as a child. I cut the meat down even further and fried up just 1/2 lb. of hamburger. I then poured in a can of baked beans and after that heated up I mixed in a little mustard and ketchup and spooned it onto buns. We all gobbled it up, even my husband who isn't too fond of beans (okay, he didn't gobble it up, but did eat two of them).It is an easy and economical meal. Served with corn on the cob, blueberries, and some peaches it was satisfying as well.
