Lentil “Salisbury Steaks” with Mushroom Gravy
Serve these with sautéed green beans and mashed potatoes for a “retro” weeknight supper. The “steaks” can be prepared in advance and baked while you are making the gravy, potatoes and beans. Using a healthy splash of A-1 sauce in this recipe brings back memories of enjoying the meat-based version of this supper in the 1950’s. ~ Glyn and Will
