20 oz ground beef
1/3 cup Italian bread crumbs
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
2 tablespoons dried onion flakes
1 tablespoon ketchup
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 large egg, beaten
Salt and pepper to taste
3 tablespoons olive oil (divided)
6 oz sliced brown mushrooms
1 can mushroom gravy
1 tablespoon dried onion flakes
1 tablespoon dried parsley, to garnish
In a large bowl combine the first 7 ingredients (through salt and pepper, to taste). I tried to use something other than my hands, but gave up. Make 4 patties. In a large skillet on med/high heat add 2 tablespoons olive oil. When hot add the 4 patties and cook until desired temperature (mine is slightly pink inside). Turn heat down to low.
In another skillet add the remaining tablespoon of olive oil and on med/high heat cook the mushrooms for 5 minutes. Add in the can of mushroom gravy and tablespoon of dried onion flakes, stir to combine. Cook a couple minutes then transfer the cooked patties on top of the gravy, but spoon some of the gravy on top of the patties and sprinkle on the parsley, cook a couple minutes then serve with your famous mashed potatoes and a side vegetable.
Why didn’t I just pour on the gravy over the patties in the skillet the patties were cooked in? I felt there was too much grease. If you can drain the grease or remove patties and drain grease then add patties back in and top with gravy, I suppose you can do it that way too. Or transfer to a serving dish then pour on gravy. Whatever works for you. Enjoy!
