Hamburger and Vegetables over Biscuits is an easy can-opener supper for that night when you have no time to cook. Serve over toast, biscuits, rice or mashed cauliflower or potatoes.
What I’m about to do is difficult, and completely humiliating.
But it has to be done.
Since the original purpose of this blog and my ultimate goal is to print a full-color family cookbook, this can-opener recipe must be included for my collection to be authentic.
It is a STANDARD in my house when I need a quick and easy supper.
Someday my grandchildren may want to know how to make it for their kids. Now they will have it in writing. Do you think Campbell’s will still be in business by then?
In my defense, let me explain…
Why we like Hamburger and Vegetables over Biscuits:
1. It’s quick. 10 minutes from can opener to the table.
2. It’s hot.
3. No recipe required.
4. All ingredients are stored in the pantry or the freezer.
5. It DOES have vegetables.
6. Kids like it. (at least mine did–maybe they were just used to it)
7. It tastes good. (Is it because I’ve been eating it my entire life?) I’m not sure. I’ve lost perspective. Comfort food can be like that.)
To all my friends who think I cook EVERYTHING from scratch….well, not always. Here’s proof!
- 1 pound lean ground beef
- 1/4 cup onions, chopped (optional)
- 1 can vegetable soup (we prefer the alphabet soup--you probably know the one)
- 1 can mixed vegetables, drained
- 1 can condensed cream of mushroom soup
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce or 1 teaspoon Kitchen Bouquet
- 1-2 tablespoons milk
- 1 Bay leaf (if it's handy and you want to add it)
- Pepper to taste (no extra salt necessary)
- Brown ground beef in medium skillet and drain excess grease. Add onions and cook until tender. Add 1 tablespoon of water and cover if necessary to keep from burning.
- Stir in remaining ingredients. Heat on med/low until heated through. Remove bay leaf. Serve over biscuits or toast.
