A Comforting Dinner Inspired by Rachael Ray

I was watching 30 Minute Meals the other day and Rachael Ray made her version of a TV Dinner and I loved the idea! The menu included Salisbury Steak with Mushroom Gravy along with Mashed Potatoes and Creamed Spinach. I already had some left over mashed potatoes so I thought this would make the perfect quick dinner. The Salisbury Steaks she made were HUGE so I decided to cut the recipe in half and add a few more ingredients to the mix. They came out great! (Not the prettiest plate but mighty tasty!) They're pretty much like mini meatloaves and you can't go wrong with that!

Ingredients: (2 servings)

1 egg, lightly beaten
1/3 c finely chopped onions
2 tsp steak seasoning blend
1/4 c dry breadcrumbs
1/2 lb ground beef
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 c mushrooms, sliced
1 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp all-purpose flour
1 c beef stock
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
Leftover mashed potatoes
Chopped fresh parsley


1. Combine egg, onion, steak seasoning and breadcrumbs. Crumble meat over and mix gently. Form into 2 oval patties.

2. Preheat a nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and the meat patties. Cook meat 3-4 minutes on each side until meat is evenly caramelized on the outside and juices run clear. Remove and set aside.

3. In the same skillet, add another tablespoon of olive oil, then the mushrooms. Season mushrooms with salt and pepper and sauté mushrooms until tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in stock and Worcestershire. Return patties to the pan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until meat is no longer pink.

4. Remove patties, add butter and let melt. Add flour to the pan and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. To serve, place Salisbury steaks on top of mashed potatoes and pour gravy on top. Sprinkle with parsley.
