Although it’s just the two of us, I buy family packs of ground beef. I divide each pack into 1/4- or 1/2-pound portions to freeze for use in casseroles, hamburgers and meatballs. —Kristin McPherson, Moultrie, Georgia
This is one of the dishes my family requests most often whenever I ask what they'd like for dinner. It takes only minutes and it tastes great, so I always honor the request.—Julie Curfman, Chehalis, Washington
These hearty sandwiches are terrific for weekends and watching football. Kim Marie Van Rheenen of Mendota, Illinois simmers the meatballs in a tangy barbecue sauce rather than the traditional Italian red sauce.
