These 4-Ingredient Burger Bundles feature ground beef patties stuffed with stuffing and covered in a creamy mushroom gravy. If you’re looking for an affordable weeknight dinner for your family or a leftover stuffing recipe, this is the one for you!
I think the first time I had this recipe I was a newlywed.
It’s perfect for any family on a budget or for anyone looking for cheap meals for college students (been there, done that).
Or if you’re just looking to switch up your ground beef recipes.
Because while the ingredients may be affordable, this dinner definitely does not taste cheap, and I know your family is going to love it!
How to make Stuffed Burger Bundles – Step by Step
PREHEAT the oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9×13 pan.
MAKE 1 (6 oz.) box savory herb stuffing mix according to the package directions and set aside.
MIX 1 pound ground beef and 1/3 cup evaporated milk in a medium bowl and FORM into 6 equal patties.
PUT a small amount of stuffing (1-2 tablespoons) onto a patty and fold it over to SEAL. FORM the bundle back into a round patty (without letting any stuffing out) and place it into the 9×13 pan.
ADD the remaining stuffing to the pan in an even layer.
COMBINE 1 (10.5 oz.) can cream of mushroom soup and another 1/3 cup evaporated milk in a small bowl and POUR over the patties and stuffing.
BAKE at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
*OPTIONAL serve burger bundles and stuffing over mashed potatoes.
Recipe Tips and Substitutions
As you can tell from the lighter color of the burger bundles in the pictures, I used ground turkey for this recipe which is a great substitute for ground beef. You could even use ground chicken and chicken stuffing.
The recipe calls for instant stuffing, but you can substitute 3 cups leftover homemade stuffing for a richer taste. It’s a great way to use up all of that leftover Thanksgiving stuffing when you’re tired of turkey sandwiches 😉
If you don’t have evaporated milk, regular milk works fine just use one with the highest fat content (aka in my house we buy whole milk and 1% so I would use the whole milk in this recipe).
While not necessary, if you’d like to kick up the flavor you can add 2 teaspoons of Worchestire sauce and 1 tablespoon of ketchup to the mushroom soup gravy before pouring it on the patties.
If you’d like more gravy to pour on the cooked burger bundles and mashed potatoes (if you make them) you can pour less on them before they go in the oven, or you can make extra gravy by heating 1/2 can cream of mushroom soup and 1/4 cup milk on the stove until well combined.
