    I was looking for the 80's cafeteria hamburger gravy. This one is close. Mine wouldn't thicken so I added cornstarch...a tsp at a time and stirred like crazy. Kinda thought worseshire would add flavor. I was out so threw in a few splashes of liquid smoke. This was delicious! Will make again!!

    A great, quick meal. My husband always talked about hamburger gravy, I had never had it before. Most recipes I have looked at use mushroom soup, my son and I don't like mushroom soup. I happened upon this and it was an instant hit. It is in my rotation now and always a hit with the family!

    This taste just like we use to have in elementary school. It was always one of my favorites and still is especially with mashed potatoes. Great comfort food!

    I used chicken bouillon because I was out of beef, but it was still a great tasting meal. Served it over mashed potatoes, like my mom used to!

    We wanted to try something different one evening and I came across this recipe. It was easy and very delicous! I made buttered egg noodles instead of spuds because of time and it was excellent! Yummy!
