15 Ground Meat Dinners On A Budget

Have you ever been stuck in a food rut?

I’ve been in one lately. I didn’t realize it until now. For dinner tonight, I prepared burgers made from grass-fed beef. They were yummy and I have no complaints, but for the past few months there’s been a pretty tight rotation of hamburgers, tacos or chili. Sometimes meatloaf…if someone’s coming to dinner.

I purchase ground meat pretty often because it’s one of the cheaper cuts of meat. Grass-fed/pastured meat is crazy expensive, so I try to choose cuts like ground meat, roasts or stew meats. (I’ve even started to buy organs like liver! It’s a big step for me.)

So, I’m inspired to break out of my ground meat rut and try new recipes. Below are 15 yummy ground meat recipes from some amazing real food bloggers. Here’s to saving a little moo-lah!
