Very easy and tasty! Instead of the chopped onions I added a whole pack of powdered onion soup mix - very good! Next time I might add an extra half can (or full can) of soup (and water) because I served it over egg noodles and would have liked a little more of the soup/gravy. Thanks for an easy, comfort food recipe!

Wow! this turned out great. I read all of the reviews and this is what I did: Because many reviewers had trouble with the patties falling apart, I omitted the 2 tablespoons of water in the meat mixture. (It seemed to do the trick) I did,however add about 1/4 of a finely chopped onion to the meat. I used milk instead of water in the sauce, added about 1 1/2 tablespoon of onion soup mix, another 1/4 chopped onion and about 1/2 teaspoon of balsamic vinegar to the sauce before simmering. I served it with noodles and corn and both my DD and my DH raved about it. Thanks Ang for sharing this easy new favorite.
