Italian Hamburgers

I'm known for making a ton of food every night because there's always a chance that all these kids will show up.

2 lbs Chop Meat
4-5 cloves Garlic
1 small Onion
½ c Bread crumbs
½ c Grated cheese
1 Egg
1 package Mushrooms
2-3 chopped scallions
Gravy Master
6 ounces or more to taste Red wine or Marsala
1 small can Beef broth
1 small Mozzarella cheese
Baking pan (deep)

Make 4 hamburgers out of first 7 ingredients. In a large fry pan heat small amount of olive oil to pan and place burgers in pan on med/high. Cover and turn when well browned. When burgers are cooked remove and add mushrooms and chopped scallions to the pan and sauté. After mushrooms are cooked add flour to make gravy. Add in the wine first then the beef broth slowly to get a nice consistency. Add small amount of gravy master. Make sure gravy is thin it will get thicker in the oven.
Pour mixture over burgers in a baking pan and cook covered with foil for 30 minutes.
Remove foil cover and add mozzarella cheese and return to oven until cheese is melted.

  1. Gary always tells me to leave out the breadcrumbs and egg, which I refuse because it makes the burgers rock-hard, especially if you use lean beef. Must be an Irish thing. I'll show him your recipe. No doubt he wouldn't argue with your authority (smart thing).
