Blood Gravy

"This recipe name sounds kind of strange but it's great. Got this recipe from my sister and this is what she called it. Not sure where she got it at. If anyone knows it by another name, let me know. If you have heard it by this name let me know also. It's a great basic recipe for adding other ingredients, such as the various different tomatoe sauces that are out now. Sometimes I add mushrooms. My family requests this recipe often because it is hearty and fills you up. Serve with a salad and bread."

"I am a wife and a mother. I make quilts and work at a fabric store. I have a mug that says, "I use to cook before I learned how to quilt". :) I also garden and am getting ready to take the Master Gardeners course. My hubby and I like to go for hikes with our dog Tank. My kids are older now and do their own things. My favorite cookbook is....Mastercook with traded recipes from all over the world. I do love the small cookbook called "Aglow in the Kitchen" which I will post recipes from. A dream to still fullfill is to go on a cruise and visit the tropics. I love bright colors, scrappy quilts and masses of flowers and people and sharing recipes."

    Thank you SO much for this recipe. I could always remember my Mom making something like this for me when I was a very little girl, I just couldn't quite remember what all what into it. I've tried to make it myself but I never quite got it right. This hit the nail on the head, what an awesome childhood memory. Since my Mom has passed away I thought I'd never be able to get that great dish again but thanks to this great site I have.

    We make this at's one of my husband's grandmother's recipes. We cook burger with onion then drain and put in 8x8 pan, top with drained green beans, tomato sauce, then mashed potatoes. She tops it in serving sized glops. then bake in oven until the potatoes start to turn golden and the casserole bubbles. Yummy, filling comfort food. Don't think my kids would like to eat something called Blood Gravy, so we'll stick to Gram's Casserole!

    This is called "Shepherd's Pie" This is one of my families favorite dishes. we usually make it with herb instant potatoes and put sliced velveeta on top of it when it only has about 15 mins left to bake.

    This sounds like "shepherd's pie", and it reminds me of my college days. Everyone groaned when it was on the menu, but I enjoyed it. I like how the green beans taste in it.
