For the past month I’ve enjoyed promoting the importance of #Sunday Supper with a large group of bloggers from around the world. I firmly believe that gathering family and friends around the table for a meal at least once a week can make a huge difference in the relationships of everyone involved…plus a lot of wonderful memories.
I also believe it’s important to gather everyone around the table during the week as well, just as my family did throughout my childhood. However, our busy, busy lives can make sitting down to a weekday supper very difficult. Still, as food writer Robin Mather said in a recent interview, “If you can’t get the kids home so everyone can eat a meal together, then maybe they don’t need those activities. After church, sitting down each night for everyone to eat together should be the priority.”
I bet you have all of the ingredients on hand. I’ve served Juicyburgers on both simple and fancy buns, but I often use bread, just like Mom. Choose whole wheat bread (as I did) and serve it with some fresh veggies or a salad, and you will have a healthy meal for the whole family. (Okay, I added potato chips, too, but what’s a sandwich without chips, right?)
2 pounds hamburgerOnion, to taste (I’ve used minced in the past.)
1 cup ketchup (Or catsup, as Mamaw wrote on her recipe card.)
2 tablespoons yellow mustard
1 tablespoon white vinegar
Salt and pepper, to taste
Bread or buns, for serving
In a skillet, brown the hamburger and onions. Add the remaining ingredients and cook until hot. Spoon onto buns or bread to serve.
