How to Stretch Ground Beef


Stretch ground beef and your grocery budget by mixing one of these cheap fillers in with your meat:
  • Oatmeal
  • Bread crumbs
  • TVP
  • Cream of Wheat
  • Grated vegetables (try potatoes or carrots)
  • Beans
  • Rice
  • Ground turkey

Then, prepare your meal as usual, and enjoy the savings.

Why This Works

The filler takes on the taste and texture of the ground beef; so your recipe looks and tastes the same, but costs less.
