photo by Nikki C.
- Ready In:
- 1hr 35mins
- 1 - 1 1⁄2 lb ground beef (I used very lean)
- 1⁄2 cup crumbs-saltine bread, Ritz crackers, panko, seasoned stuffing mix
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 1 1⁄4 ounces onion soup mix, Lipton's divided
- 1⁄2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt, completely adjustable per your tastes
- 1 small yellow onion, finely diced
- 10 ounces heinz beef gravy, jar
- 2 tablespoons butter or 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2⁄3 cup water
- 2 -4 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
- 2 -4 teaspoons ketchup or 2 -4 teaspoons tomato sauce
- 1⁄2 teaspoon mustard powder
- 1⁄2 cup mushroom, sliced
- Preheat oven to 350. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray of nonstick cooking spray or use a little oil.
- In a medium bowl mix crumbs, 1/2 of Onion soup packet, salt and pepper and 1/4-1/3 of the finely diced onion. Mix to incorporate then add ground beef and egg. Mix gently to blend. Form into 4 oblong patties.
- Place patties on prepared baking sheet and put in preheated oven for about 35-40 minute Turn patties halfway through cook time.
- In a medium to large skillet (with a lid or you can use foil) over medium heat, melt butter and add remaining diced onion--this would be a good point to saute mushrooms if you are adding them. Season with salt and pepper and saute until soft but not browned.
- Add jar of gravy and remaining 1/2 packet of onion soup mix and mustard powder. Add 2/3 c water and stir to make sure the soup mix is dissolved.
- Taste the gravy after heating through--if you are happy with it stop. If you want to --- Add in teaspoonfuls of worcestershire sauce and ketchup to taste. Try 1 tsp of each at a time, tasting after each addition.
- Remove cooked patties from oven and nestle into the pan of gravy. Cover with lid or foil and over medium/low heat let them warm through for 15-20 minute
- I served this with a super cheat cast of characters. Bob Evans mashed potatoes, Bird's Eye corn and broccoli, carrot and cauliflower blend in the microwave bags. Don't forget to salt and pepper your veggies, makes a huge difference with frozen veggies.
- I do think that the patties are great make aheads and freezable. The gravy is pretty fast to whip up whenever you need a fast filling meal.

This was absolutely delicious! I was looking for a recipe that didn't call for mushroom soup or beef broth because I didn't have those items. I added Worcestershire to the meat as well and skipped the ketchup in the gravy. And I had to use a packet of brown gravy instead of jarred because that's all I had on hand. Will be making again! Thanks!
