Last Minute Dinner Challenge: a Pound of Ground Meat - Now What?

OK, Chowhound Chefs!

Please start your engines. No, wait. Start the old "Twilight Zone" "doot-dat-dat-dat" theme music. This could get weird...
It's Rod Serling saying: "May I present, for your entertainment and delectation a pound of ground meat. It's ground turkey. But, it might be ANY ground meat from this or any other universe. But, with some imagination and the right ingredients I think it may yet hold some surprises..."

It's 2 p.m. West Coast time and my dinner menu is up for grabs.
I suspect my husband is bored out of his mind with my old dinner standbyes: meatloaf, burgers, spag. bol., chili, and meat/veg. stir fries with rice or various noodles. It's well known how you all love a challenge and my fridge and pantry are replete with the all the basic staples. So, please, please, please - what would YOU do with a pound of hamburger meat and some imagination?

Let the games begin!

Not ruling out the general categories of cooking noted above: loafie things, burgery things, things that are stir fried, but do you have versions that will make my tired old husband wake up and say "Niki, THAT'S really good. And different!"
