Please excuse the bite marks in the sammie in the picture…..as I was basking in the goodness of this absolutely simple meal, I realized that I didn’t capture the suspect’s mug shot. At least you get to see the yummy sliced cucumber I got to have along with him. I really, truly think that this recipe is the easiest one i’ve ever put on this blog. Even easier than the homemade hamburger helper, which is similar to this recipe, but actually has more steps. Ready to learn? I’m warning you, it’s so easy, if you blink you might miss it! So pay attention!
1 pound ground meat(beef, turkey or chicken)
1 medium onion, chopped
1 pack of hot dog buns(8 rolls)
1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
2 dashes of salt
dash of pepper
Brown the meat in a skillet over medium heat. Once most of the meat is browned, add onion and cooked until transluscent. If desired(sometimes I do, sometimes I don’t), drain off the fat/liquid in the pan. Put pan back on heat and add the garlic powder, salt and pepper. Stir until fully incorporated. Finished!
Told ya! Now this may seem too simple but the key to this meal are the “fixins.” Everyone gets 2 buns(for a family of 4) filled with the loose meat and you put out whatever you have in the fridge. Hubby loves cheddar cheese, so I immediately put shredded cheese on the bottom of 2 of the buns, took out the sour cream and hot sauce for him and he had “Mexican” loose meat sammies. I am a ketchup junkie so I just topped mine with the yummy red sauce and had a make shift “sloppy joe” loose meat sammie. We also have leftover tzatziki sauce from Monday, so I’m going to let DH take the leftover sammies(we are a family of 3) for lunch tomorrow with some of the yummy Greek sauce and he can have “gyro style” loose sammies! The possibilities are endless!
