Hamburger Buddy

Introduction

This recipe is from Eating Well Recipe collection. I changed the recipe by replacing ground beef with ground turkey and reducing the amount of dried thyme. It's a really good comfort food.

  • I used low salt broth for the water and omitted the salt which gave it more flavor. I also omitted the sour cream as my daughter has a dairy allergy. - 5/18/12

  • I did a search to see if I could find the nutrition info. with it made with turkey and found it, :) We all enjoyed it a lot for dinner. I had no thyme and used Italian spice mix and plain low fat greek yogurt as I had no sour cream. - 3/14/11

  • I agree with both - pretty bland, even with extra spices and garlic. But I added extra vegetables and used whole grain rotini, so it's nice well-rounded meal anyway. Warms up well for leftovers, especially with some hot sauce. - 10/30/10
