When I first read this recipe from Gooseberry Patch’s Mom’s Very Best Recipes*… I thought I misread it!
It calls for you to brown a pound of ground beef and then add a can of Minestrone soup to it!
You then take the bottoms of 8 buns and put them on a broiler pan and top them with the mixture.
Then top with a slice of cheese and broil just until melted… 1-2 minutes max.
What did I do to lighten this recipe up?
- I used extra lean ground beef.
- I used white wheat buns- shaving off calories and adding fiber.
- I used 2% American Cheese slices.
Psst… have you entered to win Mom’s Very Best Recipes yet?
