  • Potato Chips: Rather than traditional breadcrumbs, this recipe incorporates crushed potato chips, adding a unique, salty crunch that elevates the flavor and texture.
  • Onion Gravy: The dish is topped with a hearty onion gravy, which can be adjusted with additional broth to reach your desired thickness.

For the Patties:

  • 1 pound (453 g) ground beef
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup (about 150 g) crushed potato chips
  • 2 teaspoons dry mustard
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon (15 g) unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon (15 ml) olive oil

For the Gravy:

  • 1 yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups (480 ml) beef broth (add more if needed to thin)
  • 4 dashes Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon (8 g) cornstarch
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Cooking Instructions

Prepare the Patties:

  1. In a bowl, combine ground beef, eggs, crushed potato chips, dry mustard, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Mix well.
    Form into four patties.
  2. In a skillet over medium-high heat, melt butter with oil, and fry patties until well-browned and cooked through, about 5 minutes per side. Set aside.

Make the Gravy:

  1. Reduce to medium heat. Add onions to the skillet; cook until soft and golden, about 3-5 minutes.
  2. Combine cornstarch with a bit of beef broth to make a slurry. Add this along with the remaining broth and Worcestershire sauce to the skillet.
  3. Stir continually as the gravy thickens. Adjust thickness with additional broth if necessary.
  4. Return the patties to the skillet, spooning the gravy over them. Allow to simmer until fully heated through.
