BLUE PLATE BEEF PATTIES
2 green onions w/tops
1/4 C. seasoned bread crumbs
1 Tbs. prepared mustard
1 to 1-1/2 lbs. lean ground beef
1 jar or can beef gravy (12 oz) (Heinz is good)
1/2 C. water
1/2 to 1 tsp. prepared horseradish
1/2 Lb. fresh mushrooms, sliced
Salt & Pepper to taste
(I always add garlic powder too)
In a bowl beat the egg, stir in onions, bread crumbs, and mustard.
Add beef and mix well. Shape into four 1/2" thick patties. In an ungreased skillet, cook patties for 4-5 minutes on each side or until meat is no longer pink.
In small bowl, combine gravy, water and horseradish; add mushrooms. Pour over patties and cook uncovered for 5 minutes or until mushrooms are tender and heated through. Serve over mashed potatoes, rice or noodles. In a pinch, you can use a can of mushrooms, drained, but fresh is much better.
Note: 1 lb. ground beef is very adequate for 4 large patties.
