Re: Hamburger Gravy

    Well I have my way of making that hamburger gravy and
maybe I learned from the best as my mother was a cafeteria
cook. I loved it as well and most of all envied the
teachers who got two scoops of mashed potatoes instead of
one. Almost rocketed me into a teaching career.....

This is one of the most simple and delicious concoctions
to prepare:

Brown some hamburger with some chopped onions (optional)
and drain as much fat as you want to. Salt and pepper to
taste. Sprinkle the meat with flour and stir until flour
coats all the meat. Add water and a couple beef bouillon
cubes or powder and stir until desired consistency (can
also use milk or combination). Cook a while on low to give
the flour a chance to cook. Add water if necessary. I like
to add a couple of spoons of Kitchen Bouquet to add a
little more flavor and to make it brown, but it's not
necessary. Also optional would be a little garlic, just a
little. Can serve on mashed potatoes, rice, toast, bread,
noodles or if you can't wait, just spoon it in your mouth
after it cools a little.....LOL How's that sound, guys?
