Stroganoff Burgers

Stroganoff Burgers

As I write this, we’re all at home self-isolating for COVID-19. It’s a stressful time. Trying to work, kids are home and most of us are cooking 3 meals a day. Don’t forget sanitizing your house all the time too! So a quick dinner is something we are all looking for. I came out of my long break to share some recipes while we’re all at home trying to come up with something new to make for dinner.

Stroganoff burgers – yummy, easy, everyone likes them

Enter Stroganoff Burgers. My mom made these a ton when we were kids. They are a hamburger-meat-based meal served on half buns. Or bread if that is what you have. The ingredients all store for a long time and you can freeze the meat mixture once you mix it up, should you have any leftovers. The recipe lends itself to making a double batch, so I normally make 2 batches and freeze one. It is also the meal I bring to new parents or anyone else who needs a meal brought to them. We just had these before the quarantine started and I had some leftover buns, so I thawed a little bit and took these pictures.

The taste is very comfort food-ish. My son calls them “snuggle burgers” if that is any clue. My sister hates olives, miracle whip and is not a fan of tomato soup, but she loves these too. They are a crowdpleaser.

Here is the super easy recipe:

Stroganoff Burgers

This is a single recipe, I recommend doubling. Freeze the rest if there is any.

1 pound ground beef
½ pound (8 oz) cheddar cheese
½ can tomato soup
½ c miracle whip
1 small can chopped olives
1 small onion, chopped
salt
hamburger buns

Brown the meat and onions together.  Drain.  In a large bowl, mix everything together.  Put hamburger bun halves on a cookie sheet. Toast them if you feel like it.  Put a scoop of the mixture on each.  Broil until hot and bun looks toasted on the edge.  (If reheating, heat up the meat a little bit first, then broil, or don’t.)
