White Trash Recipe of the Week

Hamburg Gravy (yes it is spelled correctly)

*I do not measure and I am not a chef obviously.

Ingredients:
1 lb ground hamburger (the fatter the better, more grease)
A few tablespoons of flour for gravy
Instant mashed potatoes
Salt/pepper to taste
Water

Procedure: Brown the hamburger meat and salt to your taste. When you drain the grease, make sure you save it. Start up a batch of instant mashed potatoes. I'm sure the recipe is on the box and I'm too lazy to get a box and rewrite directions.

Now you are going to make gravy from the grease. You probably have your own style. I like to heat up some grease, add a little flour and make that brown. I just keep adding grease/flour/water/a little pepper and stir until I get the consistency correct. I know this is a complicated process, you'll just have to take my word for it.

You should now have gravy, instant mashed potatoes, and cooked ground meat. On a plate, put the mashed potatoes, then the meat, and then the gravy. It should look like a mountain. Hooray, it's done!

I actually considered making it last night, but chose sloppy joes instead. Who says cheap, easy food can't be tasty?
