You can substitute ground turkey for ground beef in this recipe. We often combine both. My family has never noticed and it is a great way to save a little money.
Sometimes, I like to add onions and bell pepper to the recipe. Yum!
We keep diced onion and bell pepper in the freezer so it is easy to add to any recipe we like. Another time saving tip is to use a small food chopper or food processor to quickly and easily chop the onions.
If you do not have one of these, I highly recommend them. They are such a time saver and you can get the veggies really fine if you have children that are picky.
Use what you already have in the freezer or what is on sale that week at the grocery store. We save a lot of money cooking based on what is on sale.
This recipe really allows you to utilize sales and what you already have. It helps keep the grocery budget reasonable and feed a large family.
By shopping when things are on sale I save money on groceries and it really helps our budget. Saving money and feeding a big family can be accomplished.
