Hamburger Gravy over Mashed Potatoes

Total Time

I got this from a local cookbook. It's great for someone like me who is is not-so-hot at making gravy. Serve with sliced cantaloupe or tomatoes and hot biscuits.


  1. Brown ground round. Drain any grease. Add margarine and flour. Cook for a few minutes over medium heat. Add milk. Increase heat and cook, stirring constantly until thickened. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add the cayenne pepper.
  2. Serve over mashed potatoes.

I haven't made this yet, but it sounds foolproof. I was looking for recipes using cooked ground beef. Due to my inattention, I bought a large package of regular ground beef instead of lean. To remove the fat, I put the ground beef into a large, pot, covered it with just water (you can season in specific recipes) and boiled for 10 minutes, cooled the broth outside to save on energy costs and lifted off the fat When I do make this, I will use either the saved beef broth or water. Either yields fine gravy results. Just make sure that flour really browns first. Milk is expensive in Canada, thanks to the various dairy boards. Whole milk costs $3.49 for two litres, lower fat slightly less. Thank you for posting
