Salisbury Steak and Bread


My mother found this recipe in an unknown magazine. I really wish I know which one, because if the other recipes are as good as this one, man oh mannnnn I’d be in serious trouble.  I would be bigger than a house.

When I was little we didn’t have stuff like this. My mother wasn’t the best cook, but she was a decent cook. She did try to make meals exciting. The one thing I can say that I totally admire about my mother is that she would cook every night for me. She would make sure that whatever we had she could turn it into something. Every night we sat down as a family. When she gave me this recipe it really did take me back. I feel lucky to have a mom who tried her best to make our family come together. Even if it was for 30 minutes a day.
