Preparing hamburger this way makes it different than a plain old hamburger. It's hearty and moist and the onion ingredient gives it a special flavor. The sweet-flavored sauce further enhances the taste. I serve these as an entree with accompanying vegetables or on a bun as a sandwich.
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1/2 pound ground beef
- 1/3 cup water
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons ketchup
- 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
- 1/2 teaspoon white vinegar
- 2 hamburger buns, optional
- In a small bowl, combine the onion, bread crumbs, milk, 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into two patties. Place in a greased 11-in. x 7-in. baking dish.
- Combine the water, brown sugar, ketchup, mustard, vinegar and remaining salt; pour over patties.
- Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until meat is no longer pink. Serve on buns if desired. Yield: 2 servings.
