The first thing I did to make Salisbury Steak, was to dump 2 pounds of ground moose meat into a large mixing bowl.
Then I diced enough yellow onion to make 1/4 cup.
I added the diced onion, an egg, some, pepper and salt to the mixing bowl.
Then measure in the remaining seasonings; some dry mustard, paprika, garlic powder and onion powder.
I combined all the ingredients well.
Then I used 5 slices of cooked bacon.
I chopped the bacon up into small pieces.
Then I heated some olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
Once the bacon was mixed into the meat I formed the meat into patties.
I made 6 patties that were just over 6oz each.
Next I placed the patties into the heated oil in the large skillet.
I covered them with the lid and allowed them to cook for about 8 minutes.
Then I sliced up the remainder of the onion.
While the patties were cooking I prepared some gravy according to the package directions.
After 8 minutes I removed the lid.
I flipped the patties making a space in the center of the pan.
Cook on this side for about 8 minutes again.
Then I threw the sliced onions in the space I had created in the center of the pan.
I stirred the onions around in the pan until softened.
After about 8 minutes I poured the prepared gravy over top of the meat and onions.
I let it simmer for about 5 minutes on low with the lid back on pan.
Remove the pan from the heat and get ready to serve up your main course!
We like to place a serving of mashed potatoes on a plate.
Then serve up a Salisbury Steak on top of the potatoes smothered in the gravy and onions.
Enjoy every mouthful of this delicious and quick dinner recipe any time of the year!

What substitutions can I make in salisbury steak?
Salisbury steak is a classic dish made with ground beef or a mixture of ground meats, often seasoned and shaped into patties.

Here are some ideas:
