Looking for Cheap Recipes that will feed a crowd? Try one of 36 these things to make with ground beef!
Cooking for a big family on a budget can pose some difficulties – just HOW do you get your dinner’s down to $5-$10 each?! Sure when you are cooking for 2 or 4 you can easily make a delicious dinner for less than $10, but when you have SIX (or more) mouthes to feed it can be quite challenging.
Lately dinner has been out of hand here at my house! With four growing children, two of which are athletes, and a husband that is very physically active I just can’t seem to ever make enough dinner. They can eat 32 oz of pasta with spaghetti sauce and the pizza night that used to be one large pizza and a salad has now turned into THREE pizzas to feed them all!
Cheap Dinner Recipes
For cheap dinner ideas we often end up using ground beef as our meat, you can usually buy it on sale or in a family back for a good price per pound and it goes quite far when cooked into soups and casseroles. Cooking with ground beef can get so boring though! It always seems like we end up eating the same Chili recipe or spaghetti over and over again.
After a friend recently posted the public question of “what is your favorite thing to make with ground beef” because she was uninspired and tired of making the same ground beef recipes time and time again, I set out to find some of the most flavorful and unique things to make with ground beef!
With these recipes you can turn your ground beef dinners from drab to fab and using ground beef you are sure to feed a crowd on a budget!
