Disclaimer: I am recreating it on Snapguide so I can remember how to make it again! Click this link to see Rachael Ray's recipe: http://www.rachaelrayshow.com/food/18862_ferg_burger_patty_loaves/
Start by gathering and prepping your supplies. This recipe takes some time to make!
More supplies. Notice I saved time by chopping things before I started.
Cover baking sheet with foil. Set aside.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Place hamburger meat in large mixing bowl.
Add sausage and sage.
Grate your onion directly into the bowl. Be careful not to grate your finger when the onion gets small (lesson learned!)
Grated onion allows the juice of the onion to easily permeate the meat, helping it to keep from drying out when it bakes.
Add Dijon mustard and garlic.
Add egg and breadcrumbs.
Mix well using your hands. (Take jewelry off first!)
Form into large patties. I made 5 large and 1 small.
Put 1 Tbsp oil in pan and heat over medium high heat.
Add patties and cook 3-5 minutes.
Flip burgers and cook 3-5 minutes on the other side. You do not need to cook the burgers all the way as you will continue to cook them in the oven.
Remove patties and place on foil covered baking pan.
Place patties in the oven while you make the gravy. If you like your burgers medium rare, you may not need to cook in the oven. Test patties for doneness according to your preference.
Remove pan from burner and scrape browned bits of meat with a spatula.
Add butter and swirl around pan until it melts.
Return pan to burner over medium heat. Add mushrooms.
Cook 5-8 minutes until mushrooms are golden brown in color.
Add flour and stir to make a roux.
Add sherry and cook until it evaporates.
Add beef broth.
Whisk to make smooth.
Continue cooking until thick, then add parsley, salt and pepper to taste.
While gravy is cooking, toast bread and cut in triangles, two per plate.
Layer like this.
Remove patties from oven (if you haven't already taken them out) and put one patty on bread slices. Cover with mushroom gravy.
