We were having a luncheon at work yesterday, so I wanted a light breakfast.  Plain Chobani yogurt, strawberries and bananas, with my homemade granola.  This is the loose stuff that’s left over from my granola clusters, which is perfect in a parfait.

It was a busy morning.  We had to make an errand before lunch, then pick up lunch, come back set it up.  It turned out great though – I am usually in charge of this stuff, so I am happy when it all works out to plan. Open-mouthed smile

I ended up having a mixture of Asian chicken salad, some chicken and asparagus pesto pasta, and then the Cobb salad looked really good.

Tiny problem with the Cobb salad – chock full of chopped red onion, so it was really hard to pick them out.  Michelle asked if Tony and I had tried caramelized onions because we might like those. Um, those are the worst onions of all!

I defrosted some of the ground sirloin I bought on discount last week.  I’ve made my Company Salisbury steak numerous times.  I thought of doing it on the grill!  I used less meat than before, and added more bread crumbs to keep them whole so they didn’t break apart on the grill when it came time to flip.

Grilled Salisbury Steak with Mushroom Gravy


  • 8 ounces ground sirloin
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon horseradish mustard (or favorite mustard)
  • 1 teaspoon Worchestershire sauce
  • 2 slices hearty bread
  • 2 slices Swiss cheese
  • 1 package brown gravy mix
  • 3/4 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 cup prepared mashed potatoes

Mix the meat, egg, panko, salt, pepper, mustard and Worchestershire sauce.  Mix until combined and form into two patties.  Heat grill to medium.  Cook for about 5 minutes a side.  Remove steaks and cover with foil.  Put the cheese on the bread and put it in your top grill rack and close it until the cheese melts, just a couple minutes.

On the stove I had my mushrooms sautéing.  I mixed the 1 cup water to the package of brown gravy mix, and added that the mushrooms, turned the heat up and cooked the gravy for one minute.   I had leftover mashed potatoes, so just heated those up and it was time to assemble.

Cheese bread on bottom, steak on top of that, pour with mushroom gravy sauce and add the mashed taters on the side – make sure they get some gravy too otherwise they’ll get jealous.  I garnished mine with some chopped parsley – Tony doesn’t care for that “green shit.”

This is a super easy weeknight dinner – literally 20 minutes from beginning to end.  I usually stock up on brown gravy packets when my store sells them 2/$1.  Only 25 calories per 1/4 cup!

And reason 3,027 I love Tony.  He was at a work related event yesterday and a company was showing how they do laser stuff.  My husband has tried to explain what all that stuff is, but it’s over my head.  Needless to say people were asking to have their names lasered on their pens, but not my hubby!

He tried to have them take off their logo, but obviously that defeats the purpose of marketing!  I love it though – and turns out blue is my favorite color!  Thanks Tony!

I haven’t worked out since last Wedneday – wth?!!  I need to rock it out at my lunch workout today.  Make it a great day!
