Easy to make and ready in about 30 minutes! Hamburgers with Mushroom Gravy is best served over noodles or creamy mashed potatoes. Let me show you how to get dinner on the table on nights you think you're too busy to cook.
Today I'm sharing with you a recipe that I make quite often and finally remembered to take photos the last time we had this for dinner. Hamburgers with mushroom gravy is a recipe my family really enjoys for dinner and I really enjoy making because it is so easy!
I usually make the hamburgers in my cast iron grill pan and make the gravy in a separate cast iron pan. And then add the hamburgers to the other cast iron pan with the gravy to continue cooking and marry the flavors together.
Seems like a little extra work, but you can't beat the flavor of hamburgers cooked in a cast iron grill pan and you can't really make a good gravy with a grill pan.
Tips for Making the Hamburgers
- I think the secret to making this hamburgers with mushroom gravy recipe is using a cast iron grill pan. If you've never used a cast iron pan or don't really know how to properly clean one, make sure you read my post on using cast iron pans. I was pretty clueless when it came to using cast iron, but it's all I use now!
- For the "picky" kids who don't like mushrooms, you can make the whole recipe first and then remove their hamburger with a little gravy and then add the mushrooms for those who like mushrooms.
- Here's a little secret: I don't like mushrooms! But I still enjoy this recipe!
- This recipe will make 6 hamburger patties.
