Dad's Hamburger Gravy Recipe
This is one of my favorite recipes that I learned from my Southern cookin' Dad. Creamy hamburger gravy with just the right blend of spices is perfect served over just about anything!
Serve this meaty milk gravy over noodles, mashed potatoes or homemade biscuits.

This was SO good! It was so good infact that I joined this site so I could post a review. I'm from the south and I've ate hamburger gravy since I was little and have been making it for MY family for years, but never with milk ...I love milk gravy, we use that for sausage gravy, chicken fried steak, etc. but never with hamburger meat, it was delicious! I ran out of milk so I used canned evaporated milk instead (one can milk to one can water to make whole milk, but had to use 2 cans to get the 5 cups) and it turned out wonderful, I also added about 4 tablespoons of beefy onion soup mix ( that i make myself) in place of the chicken boullion. Such a great recipe, thank you for posting it. This is now my new hamburger gravy recipe!! :o)
AWESOME!!! I love sausage gravy with biscuits but I didn't have any sausage so I decided to try your recipe. It is incredible. I think I'll be making this instead from now on. The only think I added was a bit of chopped garlic. Because garlic makes everything better....:)
Based on previous reviews, I used beef bouillion (Better Than Bouillion brans), doubled the sage and left out the salt. The only other changes I made were to add 2 tsp garlic powder and 2 tsp onion powder because I was out of fresh. Next time I'll use 4 cloves of garlic and a whole medium onion and saute them with the beef. I also used 80% ground beef just because I think it has far more flavor than the lean. Definitely takes me back to my childhood and definitely far more flavorful than the substitutes made with cream of mushroom soup. This is going into my regular rotation.
This is a great recipe. Growing up my Mom made the family something very close. Instead of sage, onion & chicken bouillon she used an envelope of dry onion soup mix. Made it a consistency to serve on a bun (sloppy joe style). She called it Onion Burgers. Yum.
