Hamburger Patties with Mushroom Gravy

Here's a good comfort food recipe for ya. Simple hamburger patties with a delicious gravy. Mr. who dislikes mushrooms even commented how good the gravy was. I love the mushrooms in these. I served these over egg noodles.

Hamburger Steaks with Mushroom Gravy
adapted from But Mama I'm Hungry

2 pounds lean hamburger, divided
½ onion, minced
1 cup finely diced baby bella mushrooms
1 egg
½ cup breadcrumbs
1 teaspoon season salt (Lawry's)
½ teaspoon fresh ground pepper
1 teaspoon nature's seasons (I used salt, pepper, onion, garlic, celery, and parsley)

½ cup reserved hamburger meat
1 ½ cups sliced baby bella mushrooms
¼ cup butter
¼ cup flour
3 cups fat free milk
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
Mashed potatoes, cooked rice or egg noodles for serving

To make the hamburger patties, combine the hamburger meat, onion, mushrooms, egg, breadcrumbs and seasonings in a large bowl. Mix well so that all of the ingredients are combined. Form eight hamburger patties (I then let mine sit a few hours in the fridge for flavors to come together).
Cook in a skillet that has been heated on medium high heat until they are just cooked through, about 4 minutes per side. Once done cooking, place in an oven safe dish and place in a warm oven, about 200° F until ready to serve.
To make the gravy, Add the mushrooms in the same skillet that was used before and cook until soft. Place cooked mushrooms into a bowl and set aside.

Heat butter in the same skillet until melted, over medium high heat. Add the flour once the butter is melted and cook, stirring with a whisk until slightly browned, about 2 minutes. Slowly add in the milk and whisk until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.

Let the gravy come to a boil, stirring constantly. If the gravy is too thick for your likings, add a bit of water until the consistency that you like is achieved. Once the gravy is thickened to your likings, add in the reserved mushroom mixture. To serve, place a serving size amount of either mashed potatoes, rice or egg noodles on each plate, followed by a hamburger patty that has been kept warm in the oven and then mushroom gravy.
