Hamburger with Mushroom Cream Sauce

Who says hamburger can’t be fancy? Not I. This one has been passed on through our family and is a favorite of everyone who tries it. I am constantly asked for the recipe. It’s a great hearty meal on a budget.

MAKE AHEAD TIP: These patties can be made ahead and frozen uncooked.  Just thaw in refrigerator the night before and follow recipe as usual.
