This Salisbury Steak with Onion Sauce is a great weeknight recipe! Gluten Free and So Easy to Make!
Regardless of the time of year, there are always days that I crave comfort food.
Sometimes a girl just needs it. Like went you find your favorite lipstick in the dryer after your preschooler decided to “help” you do the wash. Or when you spent an hour getting the kitchen clean, take a shower and come back, and it is a disaster again.
As much as I crave a little comfort from time to time, I’ve never been a big fan of heating up the oven when it is scorching outside.
Sometimes, it is unavoidable. Like when I NEED Macaroni and Cheese.
But when there is an option, I like to take it.
One summer swap I love is making Salisbury Steak instead of meatloaf. This Salisbury Steak with Paprika Onion Sauce can be cooked on the stove in a fraction of the time that it would take you to cook a meatloaf.
I love the sauce as is, but feel free to add a few teaspoons of honey if you like.
