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.
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:
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
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.)
