Juicy Lucy
When I was growing up, my mom always made us cheeseburgers with cheese stuffed inside of the burger rather than slicing it on top. It wasn't until much later that I discovered this wasn't just a Chevriere family thing but an actual style of cheeseburger, called a Juicy Lucy. Regardless of what you call it, it's delicious. (And I would also recommend experimenting with other types of cheese besides Cheddar, like blue cheese or taleggio.)

Healthy Homemade Hamburger Helper
I am not ashamed to say that as a child, I loved Hamburger Helper. I loved it so much that I specifically requested it at a sleepover, a story my family friend has never let me forget. Apparently, I told her that my mother makes this wonderful dish that I thought everyone would love for dinner — the illustrious Hamburger Helper. So when we were presented with the challenge of making a healthy grain recipe, my very first thought was to make my own healthy and frankly, upgraded, version of Hamburger Helper. My first hurdle was the name. Everyone I told had the same (shocking, to me) reaction of semi-disgust and disbelief. But I persevered and I’m glad I did. I used ground turkey, whole-wheat fusilli, grated Parmesan, a touch of heavy cream and butter, and garlic to put together a completely tasty, creamy, satisfying dish. Think of it this way: It’s almost like a turkey Bolognese replacing the tomato stew-like base with creamy cheesy goodness. (Jury’s still out on a new name.) The saltiness of the Parmesan and the slight sweetness of chopped tomatoes worked so nicely alongside the lightness of the lean ground turkey and the creaminess of the whole thing made it feel slightly indulgent while still being healthy. That my boyfriend got up from the table and went for seconds should be testimony enough.

Grilled Chicken
The tangy barbecue sauce used in this recipe is inspired by the sauce served at Hamburger Mary's in Chicago. The slightly loose consistency and punch of flavors from the red wine vinegar and crushed red pepper pair extremely well with simply grilled chicken breasts.

Hamburger Baked Bean Casserole
I honestly think versions of this recipe have been around for a gazillion years. If I'm not mistaken my mom made it for us as kids, too; dishes like this were our idea of "Hamburger Helper." It is requisite that it be served with corn muffins and in keeping with my trip down memory lane I made some from a box of Jiffy mix. No judging!

Bubble-Up Hamburger Casserole
Bubble-Up Hamburger Casserole is the casserole version of the beloved American hamburger. Instead of a bun, this recipe calls for biscuits that will "bubble up" during the baking process. A ground beef mixture lies on top of the biscuits and the finishing touch is, of course, cheese. This hamburger casserole recipe is very easy to put together, so it can be made during the week. If you don't feel like making patties and opening up the grill, this casserole is here for you. It has the same components but doesn't require as much work. Click Here to See More Casserole Recipes

Hamburger Imbottiti (Stuffed Hamburgers)
Even the Italians love hamburgers. But in the Italian culture it cannot be only about meat. The Italian meal needs to have balance, so the addition of a little vegetable and a little cheese rounds out this meaty meal. For the record, the Italian-Mediterranean diet is the ideal diet because of its diversity and moderation. Click here to see the rest of Lidia Bastianich's Independence Day menu.
