Hamburger Skillet Meal for the frugal family

This recipe has been a family favorite for many years.  A friend prepared this dish one day while we were visiting

and we just fell in love with it.   The ordinal  recipe calls for white potatoes, and since my husband and I

don’t eat white potatoes anymore, I decided to tweak it a bit and see how it came out.


For my girls, I just made them there own little skillet meal with a few white potatoes.




Hamburger Skillet Meal


1 lb. of ground meat

3 to 4 medium sweet potatoes, sliced

1 small onion, sliced

1 bell pepper, sliced

2 to 3 carrots, sliced

fat free cheese to sprinkle on top

1/2 to 1 teaspoon of poultry seasonings (to taste)

salt and pepper to taste


Brown the ground meat, drain and rinse with hot water to remove the excess oil.  Rinse your skillet as well.

Pour meat back into pan add onions, peppers, carrots and sweet potatoes.  Add your poultry seasoning, salt and pepper.

Cook until all veggies are tender.

You may have to add a tad bit of water to help with the cooking.


Serve with a sprinkle of fat free cheese on top.


*For my girls, I divided the meat in half into two skillets and used white potatoes for them.*
