Dinner – Monday Night, September 30, 2013

  1. Salisbury Steak
  2. Roasted Potatoes
  3. Southern Buttermilk Biscuits
  4. Frozen French Cut Green Beans

I love my cafeteria-style food, and while I was making this, I watched Seinfeld, Will & Grace and The Daily Show.  Of course, if I had the TV off and the computer wasn’t on the counter, things would have gone a lot faster, but no big whoop!

Epicurious.com didn’t have a plain salisbury steak recipe, so in the parking lot of the grocery store I googled “Salisbury Steak” and the first hit was this one from allrecipes.com

There’s actually a how-to video.

As much as I love mashers (especially the ones from a box), I figured the steak would be too heavy, so I opted for roasted potatoes (no recipe required)

  • Ziploc bag
  • olive oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Italian Seasoning

Roasted Potatoes

I had the ground beef and beans in the freezer and all I needed was a can of French Onion Soup, a couple of potatoes and some buttermilk.

They’re essentially, little meatloaves


Brown the Patties on Both Sides

Smothered in onion gravy


Add Gravy, Cover and Simmer for 20 Minutes

Alton Brown’s Southern Buttermilk Biscuits (we make these ALL the time – so easy)


Make the Biscuits

Frozen Green Beans (French Cut) microwaved in a Pyrex loaf pan.


Nuke the Beans



Serve it Up!

Now I need a brownie and another glass of ice cold milk.

I wish Ray Donovan wasn’t over for the season.  There’s nothing on!
