When Mama cooks she works fast, she works off recipes in her head and makes stuff up as she goes. Getting the recipe for something delicious that you just ate that she made is kind of a challenge at best. This post is dedicated to my sister who asked Mama for the burger recipe.
Mama started with 4 onions only because they were at that point that they had to be pealed right away and used for something.
One onion is for the burgers.
1 pound of beef
and one pound of chicken
drop in the eggs.
Season with, uh, she’s moving fast here,
pepper, herb salt, garlic and onion powder.
toss in chopped parsley and oats.
Mix with clean hands. Yes, get your hands right in there it’ll be way faster than using a fork.
Looks something like that now, well that’s exactly what it looked like.
Add chopped onions.
Chop celery tops and mix with hands again.
cover and refrigerate for a while.
Slice some sharp cheddar.
Shape into burgers and freeze what you don’t cook.
Add a slice of cheese during last minute of cooking and what you thought couldn't get better, does!
Serve how you like. I like fresh tomatoes and lettuce on my cheese burgers.
Scrumptious! or Kwumptis as my niece said when she first repeated the word at 1 ½.
