Kids Beef/Pork Recipes (Most Popular)
I have 4 boys, who always seem to be STARVING. Plus we homeschool all of them. So I make as much food in advance as I can manage. With this mixture, you can make meatballs, meatloaves, min-meat loaves and use them as a main dish, with pasta, on sandwiches or grinders - and the smaller portions defrost quickly! I usually make one full-sized meatloaf, a 5 - 7 dozen meatballs, and a couple dozen mini-meatloaves - we eat the big meatloaf the first night, and I freeze the rest after cooking, to be used later.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE COOKING TIME LISTED IS FOR MEATBALLS ONLY
A simple, fairly cheap and filling dinner I made up today for the 60 Evening Program participants at the Club: I put together the sauce in the morning and let it simmer for two hours while I made their dessert (ricotta-cherry turnovers!), then layered it with freshly cooked pasta and pressed, "dry" cottage cheese, popping it all into the oven for an hour and a half so it would be perfectly done by dinnertime!Submitted by JO_JO_BA
I make homemade bagels because they are a million times better than store bought, and this time I decided to wrap them around a 98% fat free hot dog and put some cheese on top for dinner. They turned out amazing, and make a great meal with some steamed veggies!Submitted by JMKEIPER
This recipe can go down in calories if you replace the ground beef with ground chicken or turkey. You have to calculate the bun or cheese in aswel. It is sooo tasty tho! Make sure you keep the ground pork in there because it gives the hamburger so much moisture!Submitted by EVICLAGG
This is an all-time favorite of my family. I've made it healthier by using ground turkey instead of beef and nonfat skim milk. Sometimes I double up on the veggies since this is one of the few ways my kids will eat them. You can even make it without the cheese, but I wouldn't because cheese is so yummy.Submitted by ANGILAM4
