    Talking Guest Chef: Our favourite homecooked meal

    This is a very basic recipe with lots of taste. It's simple yet wonderful enough to serve company.

    SIMPLE PATTY

    2 pounds ground beef
    1 cup bread crumbs (or 3/4 cup rolled oats)
    1 cup water
    2 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp pepper
    1 tsp onion powder

    Combine ingredients in large bowl. Mix well. Shape into patties ( I think I get about 8 to 10 patties). In a large frying pan, brown well on both sides, removing to casserole dish as finished. The idea is to brown the patties, not necessarily cook them. *About the casserole dish; make sure it's big enough to hold the meat and gravy without it bubbling over and making a mess in your oven. I like to use my oval roaster.

    Gravy:
    1/2 cup flour
    4-6 tbsp marg or butter
    1-1/2 tsp salt
    1/4 tsp pepper
    1/4 tsp garlic powder
    5 cups water

    Stir flour into fat in frying pan. Add as much marg as needed to combine with the flour. Stir for a few minutes; you will have somewhat of a thick paste. Add salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Slowly pour in water, stirring until boiling and thickened. Make sure to work out any lumps; I use a whisk to do this. Once you have a beautiful smooth gravy, pour it over the patties. Cover the casserole dish and bake at 350 for 1 hour.

    My family loves this with mashed potatoes, and carrots on the side. Good old comfort food

    ** Sometimes I will use 4 cups of water and 1 cup of cream or milk. This makes the gravy nice a rich.

    Many thanks Tina. I missed this when you first posted it. It's great to have more comfort food recipes. They are just great for those cold days of winter.

    I made a recipe similar to this just last week....everyone went hog wild over it. I use oatmeal instead of bread crumbs.

    I used leftover juices from pork roast earlier in the week for the gravy.

    I browned mine in the oven on a baking pan, eliminated the mess on the stove and had all of them browned in 15 minutes (at 350F). Layered them in a 9X13 pan, covered with gravy and baked another 30 minutes. Served with mashed potatoes and corn. Tasted better (and was cheaper) than Banquet Salisbury Steak TV dinner.

    Was absolutely wonderful, filling and comforting. Have already gotten two requests for a repeat.
