Kroger bargain recipe of the week- Ground Beef BBQ

Bargain Meal of the Week

I am always looking for new ways to improve on the hamburger. Sometimes just a plain burger starts to get old and you have to spice it up a little bit! Happy Eating Y'all!

I will not expense spices/oils since most of us have them on hand.

Ground Beef BBQ

1/2 small bell pepper, finely chopped (On sale 10 for $10) $.50

1 beaten egg (On sale .98) .08

Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil grate.

In a large bowl, combine ground beef, ketchup, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, beaten egg, grated onion and bell pepper. Mix well and shape into patties.

Place burgers on grill and cook for 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until done.
