Toddler-Pleasing “Raspberry Steaks”

Before you think I’m coming up with really creative ways for using berries out of season, let me explain that my two-year-old daughter is still working on her vocabulary. ¬†ūüôā ¬†Nevertheless, she was asking for more of the Salisbury steaks I made last week. ¬†It’s a simple, but good, recipe. ¬†My husband likes it, too.

Salisbury Steaks

1 pound of ground beef
3/4 cup cracker crumbs (about 16 saltines)
1 egg
salt and pepper to taste
onion salt
1 can (10 1/2 oz.) cream of mushroom soup
1/2 can water
1 can (4 oz.) mushroom stems and pieces

Mix first five ingredients together.  Form six patties.  Fry fast on both sides until browned.  Place patties in a casserole dish or roaster.  Combine the soup and 1/2 can of water.  Mix in mushrooms.  Pour the soup mixture over the patties.

Bake 40-50 minutes at 350 F.
