Blue Plate Beef Patties

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.

    I copied this recipe from a "Taste of Home" magazine several years ago, and it has become a family favorite. The mustard in the patties and the horseradish in the sauce really add flavor! Still rather mild in flavor, it is comforting home cooking. *Do make the patties thick - it makes a tasty difference!

    I've been making this recipe for years. The horseradish really makes a great sauce!

    Nice change from meatloaf or regular hamburger for an easy meal.

    Love it! I have made this numerous time with mashed potatoes. I omit the horseradish.

    We are not big fans of horseradish. Do you taste it when cooked?

    I clipped this out of the magazine forever ago - and just found it again. This is now my son's new favorite - easy, hot and hearty.

    This is delicious! Easy to ake, it has a wonderful flavor. A great family dinner nd for casual company. I made it little bit easier by using canned mushrooms.
