A Pretty Good Cheeseburger or Meatloaf


You will need:

3 Lbs Ground Beef
1 Sleeve Saltine Crackers
8 Slices Kraft American Singles
8 Hamburger Buns
2 Eggs
1 8 oz Can of Mushrooms (diced)
1 ½ Tbs Cain’s BBQ Spice
1 tsp Onion Powder
1 tsp Garlic Powder
1 tsp Black pepper
½ tsp Salt

Directions:

In a large mixing bowl combine all ingredients (except the buns and cheese of course) mixing loosely by hand, do not over pack the meat or handle more than you have to, the less you do the more moist the burgers will be. Divide meat evenly into 8 hunks and roughly form into patties about an inch thick and a little larger than the size of the buns, again not packing too much. Cook over a medium heat on the grill with the lid closed as much as possible. Or over a medium heat in a large flat bottomed skillet on the stove. I use Pam cooking spray or an equivalent. I like to cook on the first side for just a few seconds and then flip and cook until that side is done flipping once more and continuing until done, using a lid as much as possible. Just before removing from the skillet I apply the cheese and then transfer to the bun when the cheese is nice and melted. Of course garnish with your favorites; mustard, mayonnaise (ketchup for you weirdo’s) lettuce, tomato, pickles, or coleslaw like they do down south.

You could also add an 8 ounce can of tomato sauce to the meat mixture and form a single loaf in a large casserole type dish and bake in a 350 degree oven for about 50 minutes or until done. Topping with ketchup and it makes a pretty good Meat loaf. I like to substitute the onion powder for 1 medium sized white onion, diced and sautéed. Good day and good eating.
