    I really liked the flavor of this, but had trouble keeping the patties from falling apart. I did not think my potato was all that big, but perhaps it was too big? This made six nice sized patties, I would say 4 servings if you have heartier eaters in your household. I added some mascarpone that needed using up to make the sauce, did not need flour. Used just a little bit of salt in the meat, as I needed to use low-sodium chicken broth to cook the meat. Chicken broth works just fine.

    This was easy and really tasty. I think next time I will brown the patties for a little longer and use 1/2 cup milk - I liked the taste of the gravy a lot before I added the milk and it lost some of that great flavour. Served with mashed potatoes and veggies. Thanks! Made for Potluck Tag.

    Made for the Nov Aussie/NZ Recipe Swap, this dish is a tasty & easy-fix that is definitely budget & family-friendly comfort food. As a matter of pers pref, I added garlic to the meat mixture (a must for me) & I found myself thinking that some lightly sauteed onion + mushrooms would be excellent adds for a more adult smothered hamburger steak version. The meat mixture holds together well thru the cooking process. I did strain the luscious gravy & then press the crunchy meat drippings thru the strainer back into the gravy (mostly for the pic). I suggest to those very salt conscious that they not salt the meat mixture & rely on tasting the bouillon gravy b4 adding any salt, but we found it ideal as written. My meat & potatoes DH was a happy camper. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us.

    Oh YEAH! This is an excellent burger recipe! I used brown gravy mix instead of flour and the gravy was divine. Great flavor, definite comfort food, we topped ours with a slice of cheese. Forget the tomato & lettuce, it won't help your conscience... GREAT STUFF! Thanks LA Ravens!
