We all love a burger every now and then, but ground beef has so much more to offer. One of the most versatile foods, it works well in everything from stews to holdable bites. Here are ten recipes with ground beef that will keep the whole family coming back for more.
Classic ground beef dinner ideas

The secret enhancement to this Traditional Meatloaf Recipe is the French's Tomato Ketchup glaze. Its tangy flavor and the loaf's garlic-pepper taste create a dish that the family will keep coming back to. You can get as creative as you like when making meatloaf. Mix it up with breadcrumbs, different meats, veggies or even a dash of French's Classic Worcestershire Sauce to make a different meal every time.
