chezkatie – that boboti looks really good!
The summer sausage is interesting also!
Thanks for the ideas!
If you want something highly seasoned, this South African casserole is perfect. We had this (called meatloaf) in a South African restaurant in Charlottesville, Va. and thought it was terrific.
2 tsp Curry powder
1 tsp Ground ginger
1/4 tsp Cayenne pepper
2 tsp Sugar
1 tsp Turmeric
1 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Pepper
1 large Onion, coarsely cut
1 tbl Lemon juice
1 tbl Apricot jam
1 handf raisins
2 tbl Chutney
1 tbl Worcestershire
1 Tomato, finely diced
4 slc Bread
2 lb Ground beef
1 lg. Egg
3/4 cup Milk
1. Warm a heavy pot. Put in first 8 ingredients, warm thoroughly.
2. Remove from heat and add next 6 ingredients. Return to low heat and mix until bubbly.
3. Dampen and dice bread. Add to mixture and stir well.
4. Add ground beef and cook for 15 minutes.
5. Fill a shallow greased casserole dish with Baboti mixture.
6. Beat egg with milk. Add salt and pepper to taste. Pour over Baboti mixture.
7. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes (until custard is golden).
8. Serve with yellow rice and salad.
You can change this according to what you have on hand. I usually use 1/4 cup of chutney and omit the apricot jam.
This is fun to make in the summer. It is great to take on a "no fuss" picnic, along with crackers (or crusty bread) and cheese.
1/2 cup Water
1-1/2 tsp. Liquid Smoke
1 tsp. Garlic Powder
1 tsp. Mustard Seed
1/2 tsp. Freshly Ground Black Pepper
1 Tbls. Morton Tender Quick (NOT tenderizer)
1 Tbls Sugar
Mix all ingredients well. Roll in two rolls as firmly as possible. Place on aluminum foil with shiny side next to meat. Wrap well. Allow to stand in the refrigerator for 24 hours. Punch holes in bottom of rolls. Place on rack in pan and bake at 325 degrees for 1-1/2 hours. Chill before slicing.
Every few months I fix up the simple old creamed hamburger on toast. Fry the burger, coat it with a bit of flour, pour in some milk to make the sauce. Salt/Pepper. Serve on toast, comfort food for sure.
Thanks for the recipes 6star! Some are pretty different! The pumpkin one looks rather interesting! I am tired of cooking the same old stuff all the time!

Thanks RubyRose! This sounds wonderful!
Make a batch of your favorite meatloaf. In a deep casserole dish, slice potatoes very thinly and sprinkle each layer with salt and pepper (you can also add some sliced or minced onion. Then pat the meatloaf mixture onto the potatoes to completely cover them. Put a couple of strips of bacon on top. Cover and bake for 1/2 hour at 350, then remove the lid or foil and continue baking until the potatoes are done. The meat juices drip onto the potatoes as they’re cooking.
I make this one a lot in the wintertime. Note that it uses the Golden Mushroom soup rather than cream of mushroom.
1 egg, beaten
1 cup soft bread crumbs
1/ 4 cup finely chopped onion
3/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. dried marjoram
1/ 4 tsp. dried thyme
1 1/ 2 lbs. ground beef
2 Tbs. vegetable oil
2 cans (14 � oz. each) beef broth
2 cans (10 � oz. each) condensed golden mushroom soup
4 medium potatoes, peeled and quartered
4 medium carrots, cut into chunks
1 small onion, cut in half and slivered
1 16. oz package frozen Fordhook lima beans
1/ 4 cup fresh minced parsley
In a bowl, combine egg, bread crumbs, chopped onion, salt, marjoram and thyme. Add beef and mix well. Shape into 48 meatballs. In a Dutch oven, brown meatballs in oil; drain. Add broth, soup, potatoes, carrots and sliced onions; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer for 20 minutes or until the vegetables are tender. Add beans and continue to cook until all vegetables are tender, about 10-15 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley before serving. Makes 8 servings. Notes: Cut green beans can be substituted for the lima beans and mushrooms can be added if desired.
Cabbage Beef Soup, Vegetable Beef Soup, tacos, enchiladas to name a few!
Ok, aside from meatloaf, hamburgers, spaghetti, sheppards pie etc…what are some different things to do with hamburger?
Mammascooking: I am not Carlton Pierre but a lumpia is a Philippine egg roll or at least their version of it.
In Knoxville we have a restaurant on Magnolia that specialize in Philippino foods. Lumpia is their thing.
I believe Carlton Pierre prepares this quite often.

Carlton Pierre – I have never heard of lumpia before…can you give a little more information please? This sounds interesting though and I am curious to know what it is like.
And a million thanks to everyone for all the great recipes and ideas!
Yesterday, I made a freezer full of lumpias with about 3# of hamburger (and an additional 4# of pork, lumpia shanghai).
Cut up carrots, I used leeks instead of onions, garlic, turnips, soy sauce, spices, and formed all this into a mixture.
Lay out on a lumpia wrapper (I’d bought 4 – 5 containers of these at Jungle Jim’s the day before, he has at least 7 – 8 different brands of these) about the dia. of your finger, wrap up and freeze the excess for later, and fry a bunch in the wok.
I prefer the pork lumpias myself, but hamburger is good to.
I consider burger the most versatile of all the meats. I cannot think of too many things that it does not go well with.
Obviously my most favorite is the cheeseburger on the grill and my next favorite would be meatloaf.
Everything else is super with burger.
