"Very simple. I grew up in Iowa and I always thought these originated there. Serve on warm seeded buns."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

lean ground beef
1 (10.75 ounce) can
condensed chicken gumbo soup
Very Easy and very good. Great for a night when you're in a hurry!
I've used this BASE for my loosemeat sandwiches: If I'm in the mood for a sweeter, sloppy joe style - I'll add a little kechup, mustard, and brown sugar (all done by eyeballing it). If I'm in the mood for a little meatier version, I also add a cup of chicken stock & a TBLS of worch. sauce. Sometimes just buying a fancier bun will do the trick to this simple sandwich. Either way, the key is the can of chicken gumbo and very good - for a simple, can't find anything else in the pantry - meal. Goes great with potato salad.
Neither my husband nor I enjoyed these at all. I made them for 3 hardworking men for lunch and just because they ate them (very hungry) didn't mean they liked them. I wont make this again despite its ease. Maybe its because I'm not from Iowa.
I am originally from Iowa also and couldn't remember the condensed soup to use. I have eaten this since I was small and I love it!
this recipie was super easy, just make sure to season your ground beef real good before you add the soup.
I added onion to the ground beef and cooked it. Then I added the chicken gumbo soup and simmered for a few minutes. When I tasted it, though, I knew it needed the other ingredients in an old recipe I have had for years. My recipe included 1 1/2 T. each of mustard and ketchup. I serve it open face on toasted rolls or buns.
I'm from Iowa too and have eaten these for at least 40 years now - Always Absolutely Awesome!!! You might try adding a couple tablespoons of ketchup and a couple of teaspoons of yellow mustard after the soup - adds a real savory taste.
I, too, am from Iowa. For as long as I can remember, mom made what she called "Gumbo Burgers." I still make this recipe about once a month for my husband and two year old and they love it! I cook chopped onion with the ground beef and season it well. I also use one entire can of soup plus the chunks of another can. I also bake tater tots to go along side. The meat is also great on top of the tater tots!
