My kids love this meal and it is so simple and easy and fast to make.
1 lb ground beef
2 packets Brown Gravy Mix
2 C Water
4 servings mashed potatoes
salt and pepper, to taste
Form ground beef into 4 patties. Cook patties in large skillet. Drain fat. In a small bowl whisk together gravy mix and water. Pour gravy over patties in the skillet. Turn heat to low and let simmer until gravy starts to bubble. Serve each patty with gravy over mashed potatoes. Salt and pepper to taste.
If the frozen or pre-made patties are on sale, I buy those specifically for this recipe. Also, you can simply just crumble the ground beef while cooking.
