Hamburger Gravy

Share or Save for Later

I was in a serious dinner rut and saw this and was encouraged by the 20 minute total time (plus I had all of the ingredients). 

This is a total winner! My whole family loved it (even my picky toddler).

My mother used to make a variation of this recipe when I was growing up. Swap in Ground turkey to make it more lean.

Milk can be substituted with water. Goes well over rice and pairs well with steamed veggies. Super quick, easy and cheap to make.

It seems like it was the first homemade tasting meal I’ve had since then.
