All the women (grandmothers, my mother and aunts) in the family always used this recipe when we were growing up. They are more like mini meatloaves with gravy done on the stove-top. Kids that don't eat meatloaf but eat hamburgers will eat them up because they think they are plain hamburgers! I did this with my son as well. He would not eat regular meatloaf, but made this way and he loves it! Even as an adult he does not eat meatloaf, but will ask for these instead of a plain burger!

How to Make Stovetop meatloaf (Hamburgers & Gravy)

Step-by-Step

  1. break apart ground chuck. Add egg, salt, pepper and onion. Mix well. Break off moistened bread pieces and drop into meat. Mix well until bread is worked into the meat. Add a couple tablespoons of water as needed (the water is needed as the bread soaks up all the moisture and you want the meat to stay moist).
  2. Melt butter in a heavy skillet.
  3. Form nice plump burgers (not flat and thin), pat with water and put in pan to fry.
  4. On a low to medium heat, brown one side and then the other. You want them done all the way through.
    If you want gravy, remove hamburgers from pan, turn up heat and add some potato water and stir. Make a thin paste of 2 Tbsp cornstarch and a little water, then add little by little to pan while stirring. When thickened, bring to boil and shut off heat.
    Serve with mashed potatoes and vegetable.
