Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 25 min.

I have relied on this recipe for as long as I can remember. Ground beef patties, tender onion slices and a rich gravy top toasted bread to make this Depression-era favorite.—Claudine Moffatt, Manchester, Missouri


  • 1 pound lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 medium onions, thinly sliced
  • 4 slices bread, toasted
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon beef bouillon granules


  1. In a large bowl, combine the beef, salt and pepper; shape into four oval patties. In a large skillet, brown patties on one side. Turn and add onions. Cook until a thermometer reads 160° and juices run clear.
  2. Place toast on serving plates. Top each slice with onions and a beef patty; keep warm.
  3. Stir flour into skillet until blended. Gradually add water; stir in bouillon. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened and bubbly. Serve with meat and onions.
