Simple Hamburger Recipes, Hints & Videos

Simple hamburger recipes have been a staple of the American diet for over 50 years. They first became popular after WWII as a cheap and easy way to get dinner on the table. Hamburger meat  soon found its way into casserole, crockpot and grilling recipes.

Hamburger is a good source of protein. Although it is high in fat, you can lower the fat  content by buying at least 80% lean meat. No matter how you choose to cook it, Recipe4Living has a great recipe for you.
