Salisbury Steak

I remember growing up and having T.V. Dinners placed in front of me for dinner. My favorite was always Salisbury Steak. All that gooey gravy the steak would float in, the crisp green peas and of course the mashed potatoes. Yum. In later years Better varieties of the classics began to appear on the freezer shelves, but I always stuck to my guns when it came to Salisbury Steak.

So now I have come up with my own version of this classic oldie... thanks in part to Rachael Ray of the Food Network. It's pretty simple and even the pickiest man who eats only "Meat & Potatoes" will love it!

This serves 4

1 Egg, beaten
1/2 Carrot, shredded fine
3 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
3 tbsp Parsley, dried or 1/4 cup fresh, chopped
1 tsp Celery Salt
1 tsp Crushed Red Pepper (or to taste)
1/2 tsp Ground Black Pepper
2 tbsp Onion, grated
2 tbsp Garlic, grated
1/4 cup Unsalted Saltine Crackers, crushed fine
1 lb Ground Beef

1) In large bowl, mix together egg, carrot and Worcestershire sauce. Add in parsley, red and black pepper,  and celery salt, stir. Drop in meat then the garlic, onion and crackers.
2) Divide meat mixture into 4 loaves and form each into ovals. Place on foil lined baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes on the lower rack. Move rack and sheet to upper level to finish baking. 

Serves well with Lemony Green Beans and Smashed Potatoes!
