A tasty sandwich recipe
I made these sandwiches on Wednesday night to serve with potato salad as a quick supper before prayer meeting. We liked them a lot! Maybe someone else would like to try these, too.
AUNT NED’S HAMBURGERS
4 English muffins (we use wheat ones) 1 pound ground beef (85 to 90% lean is good) 2 tsp. ketchup 2 tsp. mustard, any kind 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce Garlic powder to taste Thyme to taste (substitute another herb if you prefer) Pepper to taste
Split the English muffins and place them on a foil-lined baking sheet. Bake them in a 425º oven until lightly toasted, probably 8 to 10 minutes or so. Meanwhile, combine the remaining ingredients. Divide the meat mixture into 8 equal portions. Form each portion into a ball and flatten it into a patty that will be just a little larger than the English muffin. Press the patties onto the muffin halves. Set the oven control to Broil and broil the burgers to the desired doneness. (My broiler doesn’t work, so I cooked these at 450º for about 15-20 minutes and they were fine.)
Yield: 4 servings.
I’ve adapted this recipe from my favorite cooking newsletter, Cook & Tell. I have no idea who Aunt Ned is, but her burgers are very tasty! If you don’t care for thyme, substitute another herb or even a seasoning blend like Montreal Steak, etc. I haven’t tried doing this, but the recipe states the burgers can be frozen before broiling and then kept in the freezer for later use.
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
