Day to Day Adventures

Salisbury Steak


This is one of my oldest’s favorite meals.  Everyone in the house agrees on this one. 


We made a double batch last week & divided the extra in to College Food.  It has worked really well to have some smaller sized meals for Michael to take & use on days he doesn’t want to eat dorm food. 

He lives in a house with a BUNCH of guys not a dorm so he has access to a kitchen.  However, time is in short supply so quick, healthy, easy meals are just what he needs.

Salisbury Steak

1 1/2 lbs ground beef

1 egg

1 envelope dry onion soup mix

1 can cream of chicken soup or 1 batch of DIY cream soup mix

1 can cream of mushroom soup—I do use this to help “thicken” up the sauce

8 oz sliced mushrooms

Mix together ground beef, egg, onion soup mix.  Make into 12 or more patties, brown patties in skillet.  Mix together cream soups with 1/2-1 can of water(omit this if you are using the DIY cream soup mix). 

Layer patties & mushrooms in a 9x13 pan.  Then pour soup mix over the top.

If freezing prebake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.  Remove from oven, cool & freeze.  To bake after freezing thaw and bake for 20-30 minutes at 350 degrees or until sauce is bubbly.


If eating directly—bake for 30-40 minutes at 350 degrees.

Serve over rice or mashed potatoes.
