Directions

  1. Whisk together the eggs, onion, beef base, and pepper in a bowl. Tear the bread into large pieces, and place into the bowl. Let the bread soak for a few seconds and add the ground beef. Mix the meat into the egg-bread mixture, and form into 8 patties.
  2. Heat a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat, and fry the patties until they are browned and the meat is no longer pink in the center, about 8 minutes per side. Set the patties aside.
  3. Remove the excess grease from the skillet, and whisk the mushroom soup, water, and Worcestershire sauce together in the skillet until smooth. Place the patties back into the skillet, spoon sauce over them to cover, and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to a simmer, and cook until the sauce is thickened and the flavors have blended, about 20 minutes.

The patties were great! The "gravy" was terrible! I should've known better than to make mushroom soup for gravy. Homemade brown gravy would've been MUCH better. I salvaged my gravy by adding...

Excellent dish. One of my wifes favorites. I do not use the bread, and do not completely cook the hamburger before smothering in gravy. Has turned into a weekly dish.

So good! Hubby was in heaven. The gravy is great. We had it over mashed potatoes. I sauted about a cup of thinly sliced onion, and added those to the gravy. Will make again!

On the whim I searched for smothered HS and found this recipe!! I was tired of the humdrum of spaghetti and hamburger helper (dont hold it against me I havent made that in MONTHS). I made thi...

My husband and my 9yr old LOVED this! I improvised only b/c I did not have the exact ingredients you called for on hand. Instead of beef base, I just used a little salt, pepper, and garlic pow...
