This is my mother-n-law's recipe. It is a quick and easy dish and it tastes great.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown hamburger in large pot (you don't want to crumble it up too fine--big pieces are the best).
  2. Make gravy and add to pot. Let it simmer until heated.
  3. Serve over mashed potatoes.
  4. NOTE: You don't want this too runny--kind of thick and with big chunks of hamburger is the best.

Delicious! A friend was looking for this. She had me add sauteed mushrooms and we used roasted beef gravy. We also shredded some cheddar cheese into the potatoes when we made it a second time. The third time we topped the potatoes with french fried onions. It's so versatile and can be made the day ahead for reheating later. Thanks so much for sharing!

Very simple and tasty dinner! I made homemade mashed potatoes and served corn and steamed broccoli with it. I think that sliced mushrooms would be a nice addition to the gravy. Thanks so much for posting!
