Actually - it's not always about you Callisto. I was laughing about if you take all of the suggestions together - it gets back to hamburger stroganoff instead of creamed hamburger over toast.

Well, maybe if the little mad face wasn't there we might think it was a laughter based comment but you seemed mad that people were commenting in the way they did. You did make it seem like none of should have commented with that face. Just saying, you looked really mad.

Callisto, Michael used Jeff's name in his post so no one would get confused. I believe this was in the nature of an inside joke.

Callisto, I am the one who said I make something similar to Jeff's on noodles and I took no offense at all. In fact I LMAO at the irony of it all and how Michael had caught it!

OK - back to the meat of this issue. I make something similar and put it over mashed potatoes. DH is from Idaho and is a potato man from the word "go." (This also removes any similarity to stroganoff).

Don't worry Jeff - no good deed or idea goes unpunished ...
Yes if you do all of that. Frankly.. the simpler hamburger gravy is often what I prefer.. I only use onions about 1/2 the time.. It's mild and tasty

when i was raising a young family, this was a staple.we used potatoes as well. three members of family liked corn kernals on top. i put beans with bacon on mine. don't ask me why. also used a canned gravy. cheap and fast for a working mom

I make a recipe that is very similiar, but I also serve mine over instant mashed potatoes and sometimes I use ground breakfast sausage. It is one of my go to dishes when I want something fast and easy.

A very long time ago, when I was in elementary school, the lunchroom ladies made this and served it over mashed potatoes or on a bun. I have thought about this dish many times and now, I believe I will make it.
So many memories!!!!!

I wish I had defrosted hamburger meat this morning. I didn't think I'd be needing to cook tonight and now DD wants dinner. This would have been perfect if I had defrosted hamburger meat.
