Meat Loaf Patties

"I copied this recipe from my mom before my husband and I were married," recalls Nancy Carpenter, Sidney, Montana. "These moist burgers are still a favorite after more than 20 years." They're economical, too, at 39 cents a patty.

    This was absolutely delicious! I added a little more onion than called for and my hubby said I could've added more. So daggone moist! Easier than meatloaf yet tastier than a plain burger... A new family fave!
