Potato Burgers

This recipe came from a very old cook book. I was exploring cook books for recipes for hamburger meat. (That is hubby's favorite.) I wanted something different than the usual. After the first time making it we started putting it in the line up of normal go to meals.

The mixtures is 1 pound of hamburger meat, one medium shredded potato (you can use a handful of frozen hashbrowns), 3 tablespoons of shredded onion, and salt and pepper to taste. Mix together and form into patties.

Here they are in the frying pan. This shows the ratio of potato to hamburger. Since there are 4 of us I make one patty apiece. Fry these until brown on both sides and done in the middle. Remove them from the pan. Get rid of all but 2 tablespoons of fat. (I leave the shreds of potato in the pan.). Make a rue by adding flour and slightly browning. Then add milk. I mix this together really well then add the patties back to the pan. I thicken the gravy and serve.
Here is the finished product.  I serve this with mashed potatoes, and corn bread. The other vegetables always change.
