~Today you are getting a special treat with two for the price of one Mennonite Monday recipes. The two recipes that I chose for today work great together for a meal, so I thought I should post both of them.
Last Sunday Mike and I had the following conversation...
Mike: So, what are you making for supper tomorrow. I need to mentally prepare.
Me: Umm (flipping to page 145) it's called Salisbury Steak.
Mike: (wrinkled nose) Salisbury Steak is one of my least favorite meals ever
Me: That would have been good to know 20 minutes ago before I started making it
Mike: I had to eat Salisbury Steak all the time in school and the fraternity. It is gross.
Me: You have never had my Salisbury Steak I bet you will like it
Mike: I bet not
Me: But this has a white sauce not the pre-pressed patty with dark thick gravy that we had at school and it is my dad's all time favorite homemade meal
Mike: I still don't like Salisbury Steak
Me: I guess we will see tomorrow
In hindsight, I should not have told Mike that we were eating Salisbury Steak because he wouldn't have thought it would be bad before he had even tried it. I took the meal to the field anyway and it was so good I even saw one of the guys lick his plate. I paired the Salisbury Steak recipe on page 145 of the white cookbook with the Gourmet Rice on page 180 of the same cookbook.
3 slices bread, broken
3/4 cup milk
1.5 lbs hamburger
1 tsp salt
1 can mushroom soup
pepper to taste
1/2 cup milk
Add hamburger, onion (I used minced onion. Don't tell my father-in-law he ate onions.), salt and pepper.
Stir 1/2 cup milk into the soup and pour over patties. Simmer 30 minutes. Use sauce as gravy on potatoes. At my mom's suggestions, I served it with rice and we put the gravy over the rice.
