Fake Steak

My husband and I are hosts at a mission house. We cook for 30 to 60 people weekly and have approximately 500 guests in our home throughout the year. This satisfying and simple ground beef recipe is one we serve often. -Fran Wolfley, St Mary, Jamaica

    The simplicity of this meat patty dish belies its flavor! Yummy. This gives a very tender, moist patty. I can see it being coated with BBQ sauce or Ketchup. It could be shaped like a burgers for a crowd of teens and served in one round. I love cooking in the oven and keeping my cooktop clean! I do believe the patties could be frozen and thawed before baking off. Lots of options with this one. Thanks for the great recipe!

    I haven't made it yet, but plan to for my upcoming daughter's family birthday party. It looks and sounds delicious. Please, I'll triple it for an inexpensive and easy main course.
