Hamburger Gravy

Marsha Gardner


A staple at both my husband's and my house growing up. Our mom's both served this over mashed potatoes.

We like to change it up and serve over either boiled potatoes with parsley or wide egg noodles. I still serve with mashed potatoes as well.

Another great quick meal that always satisfies.
