Freezer Pleaser Thursday: Easy Salisbury Steak

This is one of my favorite recipes to make and put in the freezer for those busy evenings when there is just not enough time to put a good meal on the table. I serve this with a baked potato and a lettuce salad. YUMMO!

1 lb 93% lean ground beef $1.99
1/2 c crushed cracker crumbs (about 28 saltine cracker squares) $ .15
1/2 c skim milk $.10
pepper to taste
2 jars of beef gravy (12 oz) or you can always make your own $.88 x 2 = $1.76
1/4 c ketchup $.20
1 t Worcestershire's sauce $.05

Preheat oven to 350. Combine ground beef, bread crumbs, milk and pepper. Mix well. Make into 8 patties and place in a 9x13 baking dish. Mix the gravy, ketchup and Worcestershire sauce and pour over the meat patties. Cover with tin foil or a lid and bake for 1 hour. Makes 8 servings.
Total costs for this main dish is $4.25. Cost per serving is $.53 cents.
Nutrition per serving: 165 calories/5 grams fat/0 fiber A serving is one patty with 1/3 cup gravy and is 4 weight watcher points.
Its always wise to double check the nutrition on recipes.

This recipe is from JoAnn Lund's cookbook "Cooking Healthy with a Man in Mind".
