Our taste panel loved the flavor of these saucy patties. Said one: “They're sure to be a family favorite!” A simple recipe for rush-hour weeknights, it's great with mashed potatoes. Bernice Morris - Marshfield, Missouri

Ingredients

  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup soft bread crumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onion
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon prepared yellow mustard

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the egg, bread crumbs, salt and pepper. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into four patties. In a large skillet, brown patties on both sides. Remove and set aside; drain drippings.
  2. In the same skillet, combine the remaining ingredients. Return patties to the skillet. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes or until a thermometer reads 160°.
    Freeze option: Cool beef patties in sauce. Freeze in freezer containers. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Heat through slowly in a covered skillet until a thermometer inserted in patties reads 165°, stirring occasionally and adding a little water if necessary.
