Open-Face Smoked Meat Stuffed Burgers with Mushroom Gravy II

I was having some friends over for dinner the other day and wanted to whip up something that wouldn’t be too much work but would still be chart-topping good eats. I settled on making some homemade open-faced burgers with a twist.

Using medium ground beef I handmade some very thin hamburgers. I then put a large handful of chopped smoked meat on the beef and topped with another thin hamburger, pinching to seal the two patties together. Lastly I sprinkled on some Montreal Steak spice, just to seal the deal.

Chopped Smoked Meat

The burgers were served up on a slice of sour dough bread with the mushroom gravy recipe below. The dish worked out perfectly – homemade hamburgers are a crowd pleaser any day – with a smoked meat filling and mushroom gravy… delectable!
