“This is a recipe I just made up, after being inspired by my friend's daughter's odd habit of eating hamburger with Italian dressing on it. This recipe is a great one to play around with. you can adjust seasoning or amount of dressing. Be creative.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large skillet, brown ground beef and drain off fat.
  2. Slice or chop the onion, whichever you prefer, and add to the ground beef toward the end of browning.
  3. While the ground beef is browning, wash and slice the potatoes leaving the skins on.
  4. Add the potatoes to the hamburger/onion mixture, and mix together.
  5. In a large 4 cup liquid measuring cup, measure the 2 cup Italian dressing, and add 2 cup water to make 4 cups of liquid.
  6. Pour the dressing/water mix over the hamburger/potato mixture, and cook at high heat until liquid reaches a boil.**.
  7. Sprinkle seasoning salt over mixture (or seasoning of your choice, as desired), and stir.
  8. Turn heat down to low and cover skillet.
