Notes

  • This is a great hamburger gravy recipe! It can be made in less than 20 minutes, and it contains easy ingredients!
  • Brown your ground beef in a large skillet.  Add the chopped onions in with the ground beef during the browning stage for great flavor.
  • Whenever I'm browning up ground beef, I like to add just a little bit of water to the bottom of the skillet to help cook the hamburger and onions. 
  • It's up to you on how thick or thin you want your creamed hamburger gravy.  Start with 1/2 cup water and increase as desired.
  • This easy hamburger gravy is delicious served over biscuits, toast or mashed potatoes.
  • Kids love all things gravy.  Try Easy Chipped Beef Gravy and Creamed Chipped Beef.
