if you are meat and potatoes kinda person, you are going to love these salisbury steaks. i made them for jamie the other night and he did. me, i am not so much on "meat patties", but i did make myself a teeny tiny one. it was good, full of flavor. it is a texture thing for me. now, i thought the the gravy and onions were daaaang tasty, too tasty in fact since i am trying to adopt a healthier lifestyle. i opted for just a spoonful, so cruel. i paired the salisbury steaks with nice full bodied,not wine, but mashed potatoes! plus some steamed fresh broccoli and garlic bread. overall, this is definitely a keeper. i found and adapted the recipe from one in a magazine. i hope you will try it.
not so healthy, but oh so good. enjoy.
