This is the result of the "Let's Cook Karen" thread! Being very low on funds, I thought this was the perfect recipe to review, and believe me it didn't dissapoint! It's pure comfort food on a very limited budget! I wouldn't change a thing Karen! The soup and hamburger and gravy stands in for a meal that says "homemade." Thanks for posting!

I did not change anything about this recipe. Hubby gave it a 5 Star Plus Plus...we are simple eaters and this is the best it gets. Make sure and take the time to simmer it. The patties hold together and have a good taste. Thank You

Wow! Solid comfort food. I added Lipton's onion soup mix to the ground turkey, and thinly sliced onion in the simmering stage. Good work, Karen.
