Menu Plan Saturday: 3/3 – 3/9

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my full disclosure policy for details.

Are you ready for another Menu Plan Saturday?  Before you look at what I’ve planned for my family for this week, be sure to download/print your forms: Weekly Menu Planner and Weekly Shopping List.  Each week I have one special recipe that is provided to me by The Moms Resource called Penny Pinchin’ Picks!

If the recipe is available on line, I have directly linked it for you. If it’s my own recipe, I’ve included the details as well.  Keep in mind that the meals I select are based upon a combination of what I might find on sale combined with items from our pantry/freezer.

Keep in mind that I keep my life simple. I am a busy mom of 3 kids and to be honest, cooking is not something I love to do. I cook because I have to. So, these meals are planned around the simplicity that I look for when it comes to trying to figure out what to make for dinner.

Hamburger Onion Pie

1 cup Bisquick
1/3 cup Evaporated Milk
1 lb hamburger
1-2 medium onions diced
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp Accent (optional)
2 Tbs. Bisquick
2 Eggs – Beaten
1 cup small curd cottage cheese

Preheat oven to 375.  Mix first two ingredients.  Knead for 15 – 30 seconds and roll dough into lightly greased pie plate.

Next, brown ground beef, onions, salt, pepper and Accent, until meat starts to brown.  Stir in the additional Bisquick.  Place mixture into the pie shell.

Bake at 375 for 30 minutes

    Anyone know how long a can of evaporated milk will remain good in the fridge after opening? the hamburger onion pie looks good, Guess I could always make some chocolate sauce to use up the evaporated milk….

    You should pour it into another container and then use it within 5 – 7 days (max).

    I usually keep our family’s meals very simple as well. My husband does most of the cooking but I do the meal planning and the grocery shopping. Simple meals are also less expensive to prepare so they help us to keep our grocery budget low.
