ITS SO SIMPLE TOO AND THE FLAVOR? UNBELIEVABLE!
This was my second most requested dish at Granny’s house. Fried Okra was the first. It’s simple and rustic and just perfect in my mind. Granny called them Hamburger and Sausage Patties. I’ve updated the recipe slightly and I’m calling them Southern-Style Hamburger Steaks with Onion Mushroom Gravy.
I like to think of these as a countrified, Southern version of Salisbury Steaks.
They are a hybrid pan meatloaf except they are simpler to make than meatloaf. They contain both ground beef and bulk sausage. The sausage gives a nice flavor to the ground beef and only needs some seasoned salt. I make a pan gravy with onions and mushrooms to cover them but you could simplify even further by using a jar gravy or gravy mix.
If you’re not a fan of onions and mushrooms, leave them out and just go with plain gravy. Lord knows, I’ve eaten a boatload of it that way and it’s mighty fine eating.
Browning the patties leaves lots of goody in the pan that needs to be scraped up and incorporated into the gravy to add flavor. This dish has week night supper written all over it in capital letters. Serve with mashed potatoes and a vegetable. Dinner is done.
