With the spring and summer picnic season approaching, I just thought I’d share a favorite, flavorful recipe for burgers that are popular in Amish homes. They’ll use their own fresh, meat for this recipe and that can make all the difference in taste. So if you are looking for a tried-and-true guaranteed burger to please, this recipe is probably it. Enjoy! This, by the way, comes to us from an Amish cook in the Berne area of Indiana.
- • 2 lb. hamburger
- • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
- • 2 C. soft bread crumbs
- • 2 t. salt
- • ¼ C. minced onion
- • ¼ C. milk
- Barbecue Sauce
- • 2 T. brown sugar
- • 2 T. vinegar
- • 2 T. Worcestershire sauce
- • 1 C. catsup
- Lightly brown the hamburger then add chopped onion.
- Continue browning until meat is no longer pink and the onion is sauteed.
- Add remaining ingredients and cook on medium heat, stirring often until the hamburger is thoroughly cooked and the sauce is thick and bubbles.
- This should take about 20 to 30 minutes.
- Serve on your favorite rolls with your favorite cheese slice on top of the barbecued burgers
