Re: Hamburger
Hamburger Steaks with Mushroom Gravy
2 pounds lean hamburger, divided
onion, minced
1 egg
cup breadcrumbs
1 teaspoon season salt
teaspoon fresh ground pepper
1 teaspoon nature's seasons

cup reserved hamburger meat
1 cups sliced mushrooms
cup butter
cup flour
3 cups fat free milk
1 teaspoon salt
teaspoon pepper

Mashed potatoes for serving

To make the hamburger steaks, combine the hamburger meat (reserving half a cup for the gravy), onion, egg, breadcrumbs and seasonings in a large bowl. Mix well so that all of the ingredients are combined. Form eight hamburger patties and cook in a skillet that has been heated on medium high heat until they are just cooked through, about 4 minutes per side. You may have to cook in batches if your skillet isn't large enough to cook all of them at once. Once done cooking, place in an oven safe dish and place in a warm oven, about 200 F until ready to serve.

To make the gravy, brown the remaining hamburger in the same skillet that was used before. Add in the mushrooms and cook until soft. Place cooked hamburger and mushrooms into a bowl and set aside. Heat butter in the same skillet until melted, over medium high heat. Add the flour once the butter is melted and cook, stirring with a whisk until slightly browned, about 2 minutes. Slowly add in the milk and whisk until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Let the gravy come to a boil, stirring constantly do not stop or it will burn. If the gravy is too thick for your likings, add a bit of water until the consistency that you like is achieved. Once the gravy is thickened to your likings, add in the reserved ground beef and mushroom mixture. To serve, place a serving size amount of mashed potatoes on each plate, followed by a hamburger steak that has been kept warm in the oven and then mushroom gravy. Enjoy!

Also we've got a great cowboy bean recipe that uses hamburger in it. Boy is it good...

Tamale pie! Combine the cooked beef with Mexican seasonings (cumin, chili powder, etc), and mix in goodies like corn, diced tomato, black beans. Make a batch of corn bread batter. Spread about 2/3 of the batter on the bottom of a 9x13 pan, cover it with the meat mixture, dollop on the remaining batter, and sprinkle with cheese. Bake about half an hour at 350.

This took a long time to get back to. Sorry for that. But I ended up making shepherds pie.

Re: Hamburger
Brown it up with peppers, onions... we've been doing this hear & it tastes similar to the sausages they sell at the fair.
