My Mother Inlaw served a Ground Beef Gravy seasoned with salt and pepper on spaghetti. She called it German Spaghetti. I loved it and added my own thing to it. This is a family favorite that I can not make enough of. I have a Gourmet Chef that lived in my home last summer. He wanted to serve this in his Restaurant.

Very tasty and quickly prepared dish. I made the hamburger gravy and at the same time cooked some elbow macaroni. I drained the elbow macaroni and just stirred the gravy into it. I then served it with mixed vegetables. Delicious!

I loved this gravy, however I used skim milk instead of water. I also used a lot more milk and flour than the recipe called for, so I have a feeling what I made was not what Bangbang intended, but it was still fabulous.
