Simple Savings: Use Less Meat

One thing I do around our house, is to try to use less meat than a recipe calls for.  For our Asian salad today, I divided the meat in half and will use the rest next week in another Asian salad.  I use 1/3 to 1/2 of a pound of Italian sausage instead of a pound when I make Spaghetti Pie or homemade pizza.  If you are making Mexican or Tex-Mex food, you can cut the meat down and add extra beans.  If you are making meatballs or meatloaf, you can add oatmeal or bread crumbs to stretch it.  (Hope your husband isn't reading this post!)

What kinds of things do you do to save money on meat?
