Salisbury Steak

A go-to recipe in my house for livening up hamburger meat is a dish that has it roots in the 19th century, the Salisbury Steak. The dish is easy, has very few ingredients and cooks quickly.

- 1 lb. hamburger
- 7 tbs. plain breadcrumbs (I use Panko - Japanese breadcrumbs, but regular breadcrumbs work well too)
- 1 egg
- 1 onion, chopped finely
- Fresh ground pepper
- Salt
- 1 can cream of mushroom soup
- 3 tbs. ketchup
- 2 tbs. Worcestershire sauce

For the patties: Chop onion and mix into hamburger along with egg, breadcrumbs, salt and pepper. Form into 4-5 patties (they should be oval shaped). Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brown patties in a skillet over med-high heat. DO NOT FULLY COOK. Place in a baking dish (8X8 or 9X13).

For the sauce: Mix soup, ketchup, and Worcestershire sauce together. Pour over patties. Bake for 1/2 hour.

These cook up quick and they are always a hit in my house. They make great leftovers as well.
I make them with the same Scalloped Potatoes Gratin from Tyler Florence that I used at Christmas. For the full recipe, follow this link: TYLER'S POTATOES.
