Blue Plate Beef Patties Recipe

A friend and I discovered this recipe together and both consider it a staple menu item. I fix the moist, mild-tasting patties often for family and friends. We love them with mashed potatoes, rice or noodles and the gravy, which gets great flavor from fresh mushrooms.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 1 egg
  • 2 green onions with tops, sliced
  • 1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon prepared mustard
  • 1-1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 jar (12 ounces) beef gravy
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons prepared horseradish
  • 1/2 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced


  • 1. In a bowl, beat the egg; stir in onions, bread crumbs and mustard. Add beef and mix well. Shape into four 1/2-in.-thick patties.
  • 2. In an ungreased skillet, cook patties for 4-5 minutes on each side or until meat is no longer pink; drain.
  • 3. In a small bowl, combine gravy, water and horseradish; add mushrooms. Pour over patties. Cook, uncovered, for 5 minutes or until mushrooms are tender and heated through. Yield: 4 servings.
