These patties are good and quick. My family enjoyed these. The bacon gives a little smokey flavor, with the addition of the tomato gravy for a little zing.

These beef patties were wonderful. We really enjoyed the addition of the bacon. Made exactly as written and I wouldn't change a thing. Thank you for sharing this quick and easy to make recipe. I used a red pepper instead of green, (all I had). The patties were tender and flavorful while the gravy was to die yummy. Made for Name That Ingredient Tag Game.

Wow! We enjoyed this recipe very much. DH, who is often skeptical of my "internet recipes" asked me to make sure this one was added to the keeper pile. I made it as directed, except that I added 3 slices of bacon, (that's what was left in the fridge), and omitted the celery salt as I didn't have any. I ended up cooking the patties a bit longer (as my 5 month old was needing some encouragement to go to sleep...) but they still turned out well. Thanks!
