I don’t know about you, but cooler temps make me crave comfort food. One of our family’s favorite meals is Poor Man’s Salisbury Steak.
The first time I had this recipe was at our Amish neighbor’s house. They had us over for supper before they moved out west. We are lucky to have several Amish neighbors around us and we live in a heavily Amish populated area. We love living in the thick of Amish country. On Wednesday and Sunday nights the “young folk” gather at a nearby home and it makes for our own little private parade because of the buggies decked out with lights.
Anyway, our neighbor didn’t give me the exact recipe for this Poor Man’s Salisbury Steak, but I was on the hunt for it after that night. It took me a while to find one similar, but now we have it at least once a month and my husband usually requests it for his birthday meal.
It’s pretty easy to whip up. The longest part is the baking process, but your family or guest will think you slaved all day on it! Paired with mashed potatoes topped with the savory gravy, this is the epitome of comfort food!
Poor Man’s Salisbury Steak
You will need:
1 pound ground beef
1 egg, beaten
1/2 Cup corn flakes
2 Tablespoons ketchup
2 Tablespoons water
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

So, the next time you get a hankerin’ for some good ole fashion comfort food, whip up some Poor Man’s Salisbury Steak!
