  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Dash paprika
  • Dash pepper
  • 1-1/4 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup spaghetti sauce, divided
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine 1-1/2 teaspoons of fresh thyme (or 1/2 teaspoon dried), water, garlic salt, oregano, paprika and pepper. Add beef; mix well. Shape into four to six patties. Coat patties with flour; dip into egg and then crumbs. In a skillet, brown patties in butter. Arrange in a greased shallow baking dish. Pour half of the spaghetti sauce over patties.
