Detailed Method of Preparation

  2. Form the mixture into 4 oval-shaped patties.
  3. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the patties for about 5 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through. Remove and set aside.
  4. In the same skillet, melt the butter. Add the remaining onion and cook until soft.
  5. Sprinkle flour over the onions and stir to combine. Cook for a minute.

Tips for Culinary Success

  • Add mushrooms to the gravy for an extra layer of flavor.
  • Serve with mashed potatoes or steamed vegetables for a complete meal.
