Our menu plan this week features frugal recipes using one of our favorite cheap grocery staples: ground beef. Our ground beef frugal recipes will help to stretch your grocery budget and feed your family for less.
If you’ve ever wondered about the difference between the kinds of ground beef at the grocery store and which you should choose, read our Definitive Guide to Ground Beef and Ground Meats. You’ll probably also like the recipes in our Frugal Ground Meat Recipes menu plan, so be sure to check those out as well.

Meals with Recipes:
Dinner: Porcupines recipe. Porcupines are kind of like meatballs, only with a lot of “spikes” (rice), a perfect fun meal for the kids!
Dinner: Easy Tater Tot Hot Dish. This is very similar to the recipe I use to make tater tot casserole.
Dinner: 15-Minute Dinner Nachos Supreme. This frugal ground beef recipe was created by Campbell’s and looks scrumptious!
Dinner: Amish Casserole. This rich creamy casserole frugal recipe is a grocery-budget saver with basic frugal cooking ingredients to make up a traditional “comfort food” dish.
Dinner: Bacon Cheeseburger Rice.
Dinner: 2-Step Beefy Taco Joes. Another Campbell’s Kitchen creation, this ground beef frugal recipe is an interesting twist on a delicious classic.
Dinner: Leftover Love. Spread out a buffet table of all the leftovers from the week’s meals. This means a day-off for the chef!
