Delicious hamburgers with mushroom gravy served over buttered noodles or creamy mashed potatoes is perfect for dinner on nights you think you're too busy to cook!
Hamburgers with Mushroom Gravy
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 really do think the secret to making this 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.

How to Serve Hamburgers with Mushroom Gravy
This recipe is not your typical hamburger recipe because of the homemade mushroom gravy you make. So you don't want to serve this on top of a typical hamburger bun.
- You can serve these hamburgers over buttered egg noodles or buttered rice tastes amazing too.
- If your family loves potatoes, creamy mashed potatoes are amazing. Try making my recipe for Company Mashed Potatoes to serve alongside this recipe.
- Baked potatoes are really delicious too. Especially if you pour some of that mushroom gravy on top!
