Hamburgers in Gravy

31Jul08

When I was younger my mom used to make a simple recipe that I LOVED with hamburger patties, and a simple store bought can of gravy. While trying to figure out dinner one night, I came across this similar, but even better, recipe and had to try it. These turned out really good. My husband has been asking me to make them every night since I made them!!! They are quick and easy. We ate them with egg noodles, but they would also be really good with mashed potatoes. I actually halfed the original recipe since there were only two of us, so if you want more servings just double it!

INGREDIENTS:

 

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 3 pieces of bread, broken into small bits ( I used white bread)
  • 1/2 envelope of onion soup mix, dry
  • salt to taste (may not need it due to the salt in the onion mix… optional)
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon parsley flakes
  • 1 egg
  • 1 envelope brown gravy mix
  • 2 cups water
DIRECTIONS:
  1. Combine ground beef, bread, soup mix, salt, pepper, ketchup, garlic powder, parsley, and egg in a large bowl until well mixed
  2. Prepare each burger with appx, 1/3 cup of meat mixtures and form into patties about 1/2 inch thick
  3. Heat a 12″ skillet over med-high heat and fry burgers for about  minutes on each side, until they  are almost done
  4. Remove burgers to plate, and discard all but about a tablespoon of drippings from skillet
  5. Lower heat under skillet and prepare brown gravy with water in a bowl or measuring cup; slowly pour into skillet, stirring constantly, scraping up any brown bits from bottom
  6. When gravy has thickened, place burgers back in the pan and cover
  7. Simmer for about 20 minutes, or until burgers are done
  8. Serve with mashed potatoes or egg noodles
** You could also use canned brown gravy for this and I am sure it would work. We actually used a mushroom gravy mix, and it tasted really good too.
