    This sounds like a great idea! I'm going to try it emoticon - by MARLENE153
    I also add, canned brown lentils as well as grated vegetables to ground beef. Adds extra fibre and nutrition as well as makes the meat go further. Use in lasagne, chilli, bolognaise, taco filling. - by MICHYM2
    I make sloppy joes this way - celery, carrot, onion and green pepper - the total equals the amount of ground beef I add. No one knows the difference! - by NELLIEBELL7
