cottage pie (Shepard's pie)

meatballs

meatloaf

I also have a favorite comfort food my grandmother and mother make that isn't exactly healthy, but can be slimmed down -

1 pound extra lean ground beef
2 cans of green beans
2 cans of reduced fat cream of mushroom soup
8 oz 2% velveeta cheese

brown the beef - drain and rinse well
Combine all ingredients, and bake at 350 for appx 45 mins

serve over boiled potatoes

Sometimes I just use up whatever veggies I have, or like cabbage & canned tomatoes w/ground beef, all in one skillet. Season it up with whatever strikes my fancy.

I like these two recipes:

Salisbury Steak w/ Mushroom Gravy: www.skinnytaste.com/2012/01/skinny-salisbu
ry-steak-with-mushroom.html
I made a half batch and only used ground beef when I made it.

Spicy Thai Beef and Jasmine Rice: www.skinnytaste.com/2009/11/spicy-thai-bee
f-and-jasmine-rice.html
It was actually better the 2nd day.

We buy an entire side of beef at a time and I have extra ground beef to use. We just ate the skillet lasagna (yummy!) and I need to use ground beef one time this week.

What is your favorite ground beef meal?

I gave up corporate life because it was too busy and now I am even busier so waiting to have time to get healthy is not an option. My time is NOW!
