Salisbury steak has been a classic dish long before TV dinners were in the picture. Look on the menu of most diners and you’ll probably see this hamburger patty-style steak. It’s usually smothered with rich, dark, gravy and served with mashed potatoes. This recipe is too but I’m trimming the fat and calories by using extra lean ground beef and making a decadent gravy with reduced-fat butter and milk instead of cream. The skinny for 1 serving, 285 calories, 9.5g fat and 7 Weight Watchers POINTS PLUS. Wait until the family gets a load of this nostalgic dish. I bet they’re gonna love it!

- To make the patties: In a large bowl, combine ground beef, chopped onions, bread crumbs, egg whites, horseradish and pepper. Shape into 5 patties. Using a large nonstick pan coated with cooking spray, cook patties over medium-high heat for about 6 minutes, spray the top of patties with cooking spray, turn over, turn heat down to medium and cook an additional 5-6 minutes until no longer pink inside. Remove patties to a plate.
