1 cup small diced onion

1 tablespoon AP flour

2 1/2 cups water, divided

2 -1.2 oz brown gravy mix

dash or Worcestershire


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients well using a large spoon or spatula in distributing the seasonings and vegetables evenly.
  • Divide mixture in half, thirds or even fourths depending on size desired. Form each into either oblong or round loaves.
  • You can also use loaf pans but you will need to drain off some liquid during cooking. Cook for 45 minutes to an hour (for 2 loaves) or until nice and brown.
  • Remove and let set for a few minutes before slicing. Serve with the Mushroom Sauce below.
  • Mushroom Sauce:
    In a large skillet, melt butter and saute mushrooms over medium high heat for about 5 minutes being careful not to scorch but hot enough to cook off the natural liquid. Add onions and cook until translucent. Reduce heat and stir in the flour cooking for a minute. Add 1/2 cup of water and bring to a low simmer stirring until thickened. In a bowl, combine gravy mix with the 2 cups of water whisking well. Slowly stir mix into the skillet. Add salt, pepper and Worcestershire to taste. Simmer on low heat stirring often until thickened.
