Pour over a delicious gravy to turn ground beef patties into a mouthwatering family favorite

For the patties:
1 1/2 lb ground beef
1 egg
1/4 cup minced onion
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1 clove garlic, crushed
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 small onion, sliced
6-oz mushrooms, sliced
1 1/2 cup beef broth
1 package of brown gravy mix
1 tablespoon ketchup (optional)
1 tablespoon dijon mustard (optional)
2 tablespoons corn starch
1. Mix all the patty ingredients together, then form small patties about 3/4 of an inch thick.
2. Make a bed of onion and mushrooms in the slow cooker.
3. You can place the raw patties directly into the slow cooker, but we highly recommend browning them on a skillet for optimal flavor.
4. Mix all other ingredients except the cornstarch and pour over the meat and vegetables. Cook on Low for 5 hours.
5. Remove patties. On High setting, whisk in cornstarch and let cook until it thickens.
6. Add patties back in to coat with sauce before serving.
Served with mashed potatoes and peas, this homemade meal definitely beats both the cafeteria version and the TV dinners from yesteryear hands down. Enjoy!
