Hamburger Gravy over Mashed Potatoes
I am going old school on this one. I have to admit one of my favorite lunches while in grade school was Hamburger Gravy over Mashed Potatoes, I still think of it often today. Talk about "comfort food".
I have been thinking about making it for quite some time, my husband helped me "kick it up" and make a more flavorful adult version! It was soo good and brought back many memories!
1 lb ground beef (I used 15% lean), you need some fat for the gravy
1 onion diced
1/8 to 1/4 cup of flour
4 cups milk
salt and pepper to taste
2 tbl onion powder
2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 cup dried mushroom (fresh would work as well)
3 tbl of the concentrated beef broth
Cayenne to taste
Saute beef and onion until browned
Add the flour and cook until browned, add your milk and bring the mixture to a very low boil.
Add your spices, beef broth, and mushrooms, then stir, stir, stir until it comes to the consistency you like.
You can serve over Mashed Potatoes or Rice
