Salisbury Steak for Suppa!
Spence came inside yesterday afternoon with rosy cheeks to rival those of Santa, after having been out playing in the snow for an hour.
What with the mounds of snow and all, I wanted to make a hardy and comforting dinner to serve my guys. We’re pretty much all souped-out here, so this Salisbury Steak dinner came to mind. It’s something you can whip together in half an hour, and it makes the house smell heavenly. There’s a good chance, too, that you may have all of the ingredients in your pantry or fridge.
Just a warning though. You may have to suffer through 15 rounds of the “What time are we eating dinner?” game that hungry 11-year-olds are oh-so fond of when heavenly scents waft through the air. But given how quickly this meal comes together, you’ll survive. I can vouch for that.
Serve the Salisbury steak with creamy, buttery mashed potatoes, and fresh broccoli, and you’ve got a winner of a dinner!

Okay, wait. Let’s zoom in and take a closer look at those flowers in the background.
Hmm, I wonder who bought these lovely blooms for me?
Oh yeah, that would be ME because my hints didn’t seem to be working very well.
Nonetheless, they’re beautiful, they make me think of spring, and brighten my day.
1. In a large bowl, mix together 1/3 cup condensed French onion soup with ground beef, bread crumbs, egg, salt and black pepper.
2. Shape into 6 oval patties.
3. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown both sides of patties. Try to sear the edges against the side of the hot pan as well to keep the juices from escaping later.
4. Pour off excess fat.
5. In a small bowl, blend flour and remaining soup until smooth.
6. Mix in ketchup, water, Worcestershire sauce and mustard powder.
7. Pour over meat in skillet.
8 Cover, and cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. I wish you could smell this – that French onion soup puts it over the top!
Then just plate and serve. Simple and satisfying and delectable!
It’s winter comfort food at its finest.
