My grandma served these sandwiches each time I visited as a child. When I had children of my own, I relied on this recipe as an inexpensive way to feed them. They like it, and now my grandchildren do, too. - Patricia Pidgeon, Sycamore, Illinois

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until the meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the ketchup, relish and brown sugar; mix well. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes or until heated through. Spoon onto buns. Yield: 8 servings.
To prevent brown sugar from hardening, store in a resealable plastic bag in a cool dry place. If it does harden, add an apple wedge to the bag until the sugar softens (about 1 to 2 days); discard the apple.

"Only 1 lb. of hamburger to all the rest of the ingredients. Could this possibly be a typo error. 1 lb. would be floating in the sauce. please advice. Yes I would make if corrected."
