It’s hard not to imagine a TV dinners when you think of Salisbury Steak, originally a poor man’s beef dish made with ground beef and fillers, shaped to resemble a real steak back in the great depression when steak was a luxury.

I recently was asked to create a lightened up Salisbury Steak, and I was excited to play around with this! For my skinny version, I combined turkey and lean beef to keep it light yet still maintain a beefy flavor. The addition of mushrooms to the gravy completes the dish sneaking in vegetables and giving this a wonderful flavor.My family loved this, from my picky teen, toddler and husband. I’m sure yours will too!!
