Family Meals for Under $5 - Hamburger Soup

This was one of my husbands favorites when he was growing up. The nice thing about this is you can open up your fridge and use up some of your leftovers. Let it simmer on the stove while you do other things.

Hamburger Soup - $4.13
French Bread - .66c

Total - $4.79

1 1/2 lbs ground turkey - $2.04 (I buy the 1 lb frozen ground turkey tubes. These are a lot cheaper than ground beef but taste just as good)
1 sm onion - chopped - .27
4 carrots, halved and cut in chunks - .36
4 potatoes diced - .16 (10 lb bag on sale for 99c)
2 ribs celery, sliced - .16
8c beef broth - .64 (I use bullion cubes)
1 15 oz can diced tomatoes - .50 (on sale at Fred Meyer)

Brown meat and onion till no longer pink. Add vegetables and cook a few min. Add broth and tomatoes. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 1 hr or till vegetables are tender. Season to taste. Serve with french bread.

I realize I've posted a lot of soups lately. They are one of my favorite meals because they are really easy to prepare and are one of the most frugal meals there is to make. They also freeze well so you can make a large batch and freeze some to use for a later day.
