  • 1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried sage
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 pound ground beef

Dried Tomato Mayonnaise


  • 1/4 cup dried tomatoes (not oil-packed)
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup dairy sour cream
