Country Salisbury Steak

I found this recipe a while ago and we've been enjoying it on occasion. As a kid, every now and then, we'd get TV Dinners. Did your family do that? Well, I always loved the Salisbury Steak. When I came across this recipe, I was excited to try it and we weren't let down. It is extremely quick to prepare and yummy! I found it in my Kraft Every Day Foods (free) magazine.

ingredients:
1 1/2 lb. extra lean ground beef
1 pkg. Stove Top stuffing mix for chicken
1 1/4 cups water, divided
3/4 cup chopped onion (I use a little dehydrated onion for this)
1 pkg. (8 oz.) fresh mushrooms, sliced

optional for sauce: (I use a brown gravy pack instead)
1/2 cup Kraft Original Barbeque Sauce
1/4 cup water

directions:
1. Preheat oven to 375. Mix meat, stuffing mix, 1 1/4 cups of the water and the onions until well blended. Shape into six 1/2-inch-thick oval patties. Place on 15x10x1-inch baking pan.

2. Bake 25 minutes or until cooked through (160 degrees).

3. Saute your mushrooms. Prepare your brown gravy packet according to the instructions. Combine and serve over the patties.
or
3. Spray a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Add mushrooms; cook on medium-high heat 5 min. or until lightly browned, stirring occasionally. Add barbecue sauce and remaining 1/4 cup water. Reduce heat to low. Cook 1 to 2 minutes or until sauce is heated through. Serve over the patties.
We serve with a potato dish of some sort--scalloped, mashed, baked. This would be great with any side though; rice, stuffing, etc. Serve with your favorite vegetable.
