My family really looks forward to supper when these tasty beef patties are on the menu. I served this effortless entree to our preacher when he came to dinner, and I often bring it to covered-dish gatherings. I keep the recipe typed and ready to hand out because it's always requested. -Louise Miller, Westminster, Maryland

"I didn't really care for the way the patties cooked in the microwave, but that is just a personal preference and nothing wrong with the recipe itself, so I'm still giving it 5 stars. Instead of connsumme and bread crumbs, I used homemade beef stock and saltine cracker crumbs, and I eliminated the seasoned salt. I don't think my changes hurt in any way, as this was quite tasty. Very simple prep, and I will definitely be making this again, but I will probably prepare it in a skillet on the stove top, as a reviewer before me mentioned."

"Gonna make this, this coming Sunday. I bought 2 cans of beef consomme and didn't realize there was only 1 1/2 # ground beef. Going to triple the recipe for 10 people. I have brown gravy so going to add that for the rest of the beef consomme I will be lacking. Also I have canned and fresh mushrooms so going to saute fresh mushrooms. I think it will be more flavorful."

"I prefer to make this in a skillet rather than a microwave. It takes a little longer but we like it better that way."
