Salisbury Steak

When I was a kid, we used to eat TV dinners on TV trays in our living room every once in a while. My brother and I loved those nights! I believe Mike was probably in college before he stopped saying that TV dinners were his favorite meal. While he preferred the fried chicken version, I was always a sucker for the Salisbury Steak with mashed potatoes. I have never tried to make it myself, but I came across this recipe in my new Taste of Home Almost Homemade cookbook and it looked easy enough. I had to try it out!
The Ingredients:
**I made a double recipe. All ingredients listed are for a single recipe version.
1/2 cup milk
14 saltines, crushed
2 Tbsp dried minced onion
2 tsp dried parsley flakes
1 pound lean ground beef
1 jar beef gravy
2 Tbsp ketchup
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp pepper

In a large bowl, combine milk, saltines, onion and parsley.
Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Use the mixers God gave you!!
Shape into patties and place in a baking dish coated with cooking spray. A single recipe will yield 4 patties. My double recipe yielded 8.
In another bowl (or rinse out the first one and use it again like I did), mix the gravy, ketchup, Worcestershire and pepper.
Pour over patties.
Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 55 minutes or until done through.
Pattie ate this up! The boys and I liked it too. I have to admit, I wasn't too excited about the canned gravy. This isn't something I'll make a lot but it's a nice switch from meatloaf and it was pretty tasty.
