 Ingredients List

  • 1 lb Lean ground beef -- or
  • Ground poultry
  • 1/2 c Chopped onion -- optional
  • 2 c Cold water
  • 1 c Homemade beef gravy mix

Note: This recipe is not from the _Make-a-Mix_ book. It is my own recipe
using the ideas and mixes from the book. Blue Plate Special is one of my
families very favorite quick &homey dinners.

In a large skillet or dutch oven, brown the beef (along with the onions, if
using) and break up as finely as possible. Drain off any excess liquid.
Remove to a bowl and set aside. In the same skillet, combine the gravy mix
and cold water. Stir constan

Serve over mashed potatoes. For a true blue plate special, serve with peas
and carrots on the side.

Variation: Substitute one package of Homemade All-Purpose Ground Meat Mix,
thawed, for the raw ground beef.
