What is in Hamburger and Mushroom Gravy?


  • Garlic: My love for garlic is real. I use it in almost everything I cook and I love the health benefits it offers. Garlic is part of the onion, leek and chive family. It's great for heart health and contains many vitamins and minerals.
  • Ground beef: One of my absolute favorite meats to use in recipes! I buy 90% lean ground beef in bulk at Sam's Club, then package into one pound packages with freezer paper for our meals!
  • White mushrooms: These mushrooms are very common and their technical name is Agaricus bisporus! They are delicious raw or cooked and I love them sautéed or roasted. They are cheap to buy and contain potassium and protein.
  • Fresh parsley: This herb is not just a garnish! It has a robust, fresh flavor and is great in salads, sauces, marinades, soups and more! It has vitamin k which is needed for blood and bone health.
