  • Cook the hamburger. Cube & partially cook (boil) the potatoes. Layer the meat, green beans, and potatoes in an oven-safe dish/casserole, and top with some sort of sauce - a condensed soup mixed with milk or water (cream of whatever, cheese, even tomato is good), or Italian dressing, some shredded cheese & butter, really almost anything works. Cover with foil and bake thorugh til hot. It would work with the turkey or chicken too if they're ground.

  • With the Mexican thought the first poster had... you could make some Mexican-style meat sauce for pasta - the way I make mine, it's sort of like chili. I use diced tomatoes, onions, corn, and maybe beans all mixed with the ground beef. It's so good!
    Or you could make this salsa chicken that I LOVE. I put taco seasoning on chicken breast (that's easy to omit though), spread salsa on it and bake it - then top it with shredded cheese and bake it a few minutes more. It's so yummy... and now I'm craving it!
