"my grandmother gave me a taste of home cookbook 15 years ago. This recipe was in it,and ive been making it ever since. sometimes i leave the extra mushrooms out if i dont have them on hand. Ive used different breads, White or wheat works just fine. I love this recipe! When i want something quick and homey, this fits the bill. Thanks taste of home! I love your cookbooks and the stories about real cooks inside."

"We really liked the patties that this recipe makes. I have another recipe that uses onion and condensed beef broth for the gravy base which I like better than the soup and mushrooms. Instead of the slice of bread I used a little less than 1/4 c. of seasoned bread crumbs. They were very moist and tender."
