Country Salisbury Steak

I'm still on the comfort food kick. I hope it's not boring anyone, but I can't seem to get out of this phase. And this recipe is helping me stay there. It's so easy to make, it's ridiculous. And it's so good, it has to rank up there in my top 10 of comforting dinners. I paired this with a baked potato and buttered corn. A little overload on the carbs, but some days you just gotta go there!

Country Salisbury Steak

1 1/2 pounds extra lean ground beef (I used 90% lean)
1 pkg. stuffing mix for chicken
1 1/2 cups water, divided
1 medium onion, chopped
1 16 oz pkg. sliced mushrooms
1/2 cup favorite barbecue sauce

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix meat, stuffing mix, 1 1/4 cups water, and onions until well blended. Shape into six 1/2 inch thick oval patties. Place in sprayed 15 x 10 x 1 inch baking dish.

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

Spray large skillet with cooking spray. Add mushrooms, cooking on med-high until lightly browned (stir as needed). Add barbeque sauce and remaning 1/4 cup water. Reduce heat and simmer until heated through, 1-2 minutes. Serve over patties.

Note: This is an easy recipe to make ahead. Complete the steps for the patties and store in fridge. Make sauce right before serving.
Also easy to convert to gf/cf. Replace stuffing with bread crumbs, add parsley, seasoning salt and pepper.

"Did you ever see the customers in health-food stores? They are pale, skinny people who look half dead. In a steak house, you see robust, ruddy people. They're dying, of course, but they look terrific."

Something on the grill sounds really good! It's getting to be a long winter here and I miss grilling. Let me know how your sausage turned out.
