I love quick and easy recipes. I always fry up extra hamburger meat to use later in the week. It doesn't do well out of the freezer (my crowd doesn't like it anyway). My kids like hamburger or meatballs mixed with cream of mushroom soup with a half can of milk served over rice. Full meal with salad and bread and if using leftover hamburger it can be on the table in 30 minutes.

This is a great one for speed and taste, as well as using up any left overs you may have around (cooked meats/cooked beans/veggies).
Have fresh veggies you need to use up before they go? Have left over cooked meat? When making chicken, for example, I usually make more than we need just to have a quick "follow up" meal later in the week. With 5 kids still at home--this is a blessing! :)
Chop veggies if using fresh or grab a bag of frozen mixed veggies--or any combination thereof. I used broccoli, cauliflower, onions, lima beans, a bit of beef (leftover), potatoes, celery, carrots, and red bell pepper to fill a 0 x 13 pan. Open a can of gravy or make your own from scratch--which takes less than a few minutes to do. Pour this over the top of the meat/bean/veggie mix (you can make this vegan by skipping the meat and just using beans and veggies, rice also works nice if you skip the potatoes). If you want a spice--garlic works nicely but you can mix it up to get different flavors.
Top with dollops of biscuit dough or unbaked dinner roll dough. Bake for 30 minutes.
Takes about 5 minutes to assemble and 30 minutes to bake--only one pan to clean after dinner. Goes nicely with some iced tea for a meal the kiddos love.
