I found this recipe about 20 years ago in a magazine (don't remember which one though). My whole family loves it and our personal preference is to use cream of mushroom. Enjoy!

Great work, Dreamgoddess! Solid, savory comfort food. I added a dollop of red wine, and left out the sugar, and doubled up on the onions. My dad used to make a dish very similar to this, and that is how I learned that a man can cook without being a sissy.

This was very good. I made the tomato option and will try the mushroom next time. The sauce was a bit sweet for me, I will reduce the sugar next time if I made the tomato sauce type again. Very enjoyable and simple recipe.

I used the mushroom soup in this recipe. My husband enjoyed it so much that I have already made it twice! Now we have a new way to use up the frozen hamburger patties that I have in the freezer... we liked this better than hamburgers!
