Salisbury Steak on Asiago Cheese Bread

The scale has not been my friend these last few weeks – this week I am up .8!

But my size 12 pants are loose, my running is faster and I am not going to let the scale get the best of me.  I texted Hannah my weigh in, and she texted back “maybe its muscle?”  Love her positive attitude! 😀

I made a delicious dinner last night.  Since my pork went bad earlier in the week and we had pizza on Wednesday, I knew Tony wouldn’t go for pizza a second time.  I know, who the hell can’t eat pizza more than once a week!  Earlier in the day I called him and said, what do you want for dinner?  His response? Salisbury steak with mushroom gravy and mashed potatoes.

To me that is a middle of October dish, not an end of July 90 degree weather dish.  I decided I would just spin the dinner wheel when I got to the store and see what would jumped out at me.  But nothing did.  There was some slimey stuffed chicken breasts in the 50% meat bin, and in the back of my mind I thought, Salisbury steak sounds delicious!

Salisbury Steak on Asiago Cheese Bread

  • makes 4 servings, each serving, with 1/2 cup of mashed potatoes – 11 points


  • 1 pound ground sirloin
  • 1/4 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon prepared horseradish
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worchestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon yellow mustard
  • salt and pepper
  • 6 ounces french bread
  • 2 ounces asiago cheese
  • 1 cup brown gravy (made from a .99 cent package)
  • 1 cup mushrooms
  • 2 cups prepared mashed potatoes

Mix all the ingredients from meat to salt and pepper together.  Form into 4 patties in an oval shape.  Heat a large cast iron skillet to medium-high heat.  You want to get a nice crust on the meat – so once you put the patties in the pan, don’t move them for 3-4 minutes before flipping.

Make gravy according to package directions, adding sauteed mushrooms at the end.  I took 1.5 ounces of bread and added .5 ounce of asiago cheese and put that under the broiler until the cheese gets nice and melty.  Put the Salisbury steak on top of that, put 1/2 cup of mashed potatoes on the side, and pour the gravy over the top.  You’ll notice my plate is sans mushrooms – love the smell of them cooking but cannot stand the texture. 😦

Tony gave me kudos for this dinner.  Best part?? It was ready in 20 minutes! 😀

This one is a keeper.  We are off to lunch and then going to see Cowboys and Aliens.  Not sure I’ll like the movie, but with all the food tv that Tony watches with me, its the least I can do!

Enjoy your Saturday!

    Um….His name is Tony Velatini and he can’t have pizza more than once a week? There is something wrong with that picture!

    Let me know how the movie is…it looks good but it has not gotten great reviews and I’m not sure the audiences are enjoying it!

    And don’t worry about the slight gain…I think this heat causes us to retain a lot of water…and yes, I bet you are most definitely gaining muscle. The non-scale victories are more important than the scale victories anyways!

  3. It’s definitely muscle! You are doing so well. I wish my size 12 pants were getting loose. Mine are snug. 14’s are WAY too loose though so that’s a plus!

    I need to try that meal. That seems comfort to me. Which I have been craving! Let us know what you think of the movie. Andy wants to see it!

  4. I’m with Hannah! What a gorgeous dinner. The cheesey bread alone sounds fantastic to me 🙂 Hope the movie is ok and happy weekend

  5. Weigh in this morning did not go as well as I wanted this morning either. But I looked at the positive side…I worked out 5 days this week, my pants feel better, and I increased my water intake.

    Not a huge Salisbury steak fan but yours looks fantastic 🙂

  6. That salisbury steak is off the chain! It made me chuckle when you said you pretty much owed it to Tony to see a movie of his choice b/c we’re like that with shopping. I will go with him to Guitar Center b/c he goes with me to the cake store. 🙂

  7. You should listen to the wisdom of Hannah and not get discouraged. I am a huuuge salisbury steak fan; but I’ve never made my own. I had no idea that it was so easy. I’m pinning it to try just as soon as possible. I must grocery shop unfortunately or we would be having it tonight. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe. Have a fantastic weekend!

  8. Send that right over for me to eat, well look at anyway! Darn this soft foods diet! I am craving a good bite of food right about now!

  9. Good for you for judging by clothes-fit and fitness level, not the scale 🙂

  10. Pizza once a week? The scale isn’t as important as working the plan. if you work your plan, you will succeed.

  11. oh yummy! i just love the look of that steak! i’ve had many a week of the scale going up, but a lot of times it means more of a loss this week. you’re doing awesome!
