Back to this post . . . you've probably gathered that recipes I get from my mother-in-law (MIL) are good, but they have a story. This recipe is no exception. Where it originated, I don't think they even remember. Story is, it is called Annual Thursday Night Dinner (ATND), BUT you CANNOT make it on Thursday night! It has now just become a happy memory from Rick's childhood and he likes to have it often -- me, not so much. The kids like it and it's fairly inexpensive which puts it in the 'win' column.
Annual Thursday Night Dinner
1 1/2 - 2 lbs ground beef
salt and pepper, to taste
1 jar of beef gravy
Form 6-8 patties and cook in skillet a little under desired doneness, flipping at least once to other side adding salt and pepper to taste. Add slices of onion on top of each patty. Pour jar of beef gravy over patties and heat through for 3-5 minutes.
Service with mashed potatoes -- great with extra gravy over potatoes (not pictured because that is a lunch for my husband and he doesn't care for gravy on his potatoes).
