[January 14, 2013]  We love this recipe because you make the gravy right with the patties, so all you need to do is add some mashed potatoes to these patties, and you have a hearty meal for your family -- and it's quick and easy.

Super Bowl is coming and this is a crowd-pleaser. You can make this soup ahead and put it in a slow cooker to simmer all day. During halftime put out your favorite bowls and some fresh bread, and you will be the winner.
