School Chili-burgers – ADD LINK TO BUNS

The PTA at my Elementary school used to make a version of this recipe to sell to kids at lunch time for fund raising. The potatoes in the recipe really cut down the amount, and therefore the cost, of the ground beef. Here it really stretches my dollar as freeze dried ground beef is no where close to cheap, BUT hash brown potatoes are. The sauce on these is by far my favorite, though childhood memories may be keeping me a little biased.

  • 1 ½ cups Freeze Dried Ground Beef
  • ¼ cup Dehydrated Onion
  • 3 cups Dehydrated Hashbrown Potatoes
  • ¼ cup Flour
  • ½ teaspoon Sage
  • ½ teaspoon Curry Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 ½ Tablespoons Chili Powder
  • 1 cup Ketchup
  • 1 cup Water
  • Oatmeal Burger Buns

In a large pot of boiling water; place the Hash Brown Potatoes and Onion. Cook for 8 minutes. Add Ground Beef and cook for and additional 3 more minutes. Drain. Return potatoes, onion and beef to pot. Stir in Flour, Spices, Ketchup and Water. Cover and simmer on your lowest heat for 30 minutes. Serve in Buns.
