So how do you stretch 5 lbs of ground beef?
This is how I divy it up.
1 lb- stroganoff (stretch with discounted mushrooms) homemade hamburger helper.
2 lbs- huge batch of chilli- enough for two huge meals of chili (freeze one) and a dinner of chili topped baked potatoes or tortillas = 3 meals
1 lb- big batch of spaghetti sauce = 2 meals
1 lb- hamburger stew= 2 meals
That is a total of 8 meals with 5 lbs of hamburger.
