Nana's Favorite Hamburger Gravy

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by drhousespcatcher

Feel free to add your favorite seasonings such as Lawry's. This isn't the exact recipe but way back when I was a kid my mother who made a lovely tuna casserole [right.. 3 bottles of ketchup spaghetti queen] and my Grandfather had one heck of a fight over the Tuna Casserole or the Hamburger Gravy. Grandfather ate his Hamburger Gravy over saltines that night and Mom MADE me eat the tuna. Didn't help her mood I cried and wanted the Gravy too.

this is a horrible recipe. it has no taste and needed an extraordinary amount of salt to make it taste like anything. I would not recommend that anyone make this. I signed up on this website because i thought that this was bad enough to warn people of its lack of flavor.
