I’m sure many of you can relate to this scenario.  All day long you’ve been busy working, driving, running errands, yelling at the dog, cleaning an endless trail of toys, and by the time you finally sit down on the couch to relax you realize it’s almost dinner time.  GAH!  Maybe you live next to a fast food joint so running out to grab dinner isn’t a big deal?  Unfortunately that’s not our reality.  Living far out in the country prevents us from making a quick trip to Chic-Fil-A.

Whenever this happens I take 5 minutes to breeze through my Pinterest boards and drum up inspiration.  This time I came across a recipe for “Simple” Salisbury Steak.  Look below and you can see how simple this is to make.  I adapted the recipe so much so, that, I will post my version and also the link I found on Pinterest.

I have to tell you guys that this is DELICIOUS!  It’s savory-ness is so, SO good.

Ground beef, oatmeal/breadcrumbs, sauce and seasonings…. that’s all it takes.

If you have a Costco or Sams Club membership I strongly urge you to purchase the McCormick  Brown Gravy mix in bulk.  I use it ALL. THE. TIME.

Mix everything in a bowl.

You don’t have to use your hands, a fork works just fine. 🙂

Form little patties – you can make 4 large or 6 medium.  I have kids so the medium size is perfect for my 10 year old son.

Cook the patties in a tablespoon of oil over medium heat, flipping once.

Once they are done add in the gravy mixture and cook on low until it’s bubbling.

That’s it really. 🙂  You can serve this by itself, over toast, over rice…. or my favoritie!!  Over MASHED POTATOES!!!… I mean.. there’s already gravy so it’s a no brainer.  😀

I really enjoyed this dish and so did my husband.  I had the entire meal on the table in about 35 minutes which is a heck of a lot faster than a trip into town for burgers.
