Salisbury Steak & Mushroom Gravy

COMFORT food at it’s BEST, while easy and quick too!

Hands down, this dish is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.  

It’s also a fabulous way to stretch the budget with a meal that is packed with flavor and satisfies. 

It is home cooking, but it is also considered in the category of gourmet and company elegant. 

I have a trick to share. If you are feeding a bunch of munchkins and need to stretch the meat budget; after cooking the beef patties, simply cut them into pieces to reaaallllyyy extend the meat.  So instead of everyone getting a meat patty, they get lots of bite-sized pieces.  Either way –  YUMMY!
