Mennonite Monday - Chuck Wagon Burgers

Mennonite Monday started because I wanted to make recipes from the Bethesda Mennonite Church Cookbooks (both the yellow and the white cookbook for those of you who own them). I also wanted to take pictures of each recipe that I made, so I would know for future reference what the recipe should look like. I am by no means a great cook, but I think it will be fun to try new and different recipes each week. Not all of these recipes are for ethnic Mennonite food, but the women from Henderson know how to cook, so I can safely say that these recipes will be good. Check back each Monday for a new recipe and feel free to leave a comment if you have a favorite recipe from these cookbooks, or if you have some tips on what I should make and how I should make it.
This week I decided to pick a main dish that would go together quickly, so I decided on Chuck Wagon Burgers (pg 168W).  They were a nice change up from sloppy joes, as so known as bbq sandwiches, because they had a different flavor but are the same concept.  

Chuck Wagon Burgers
1 lb hamburger, browned
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/3 cup chopped green pepper
1/4 tsp chili powder
2 tsp worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp pepper
3 Tbl flour
1 tsp salt 
2/3 cup ketchup
1 cup 7-up

After the hamburger is browned add the onion and pepper and then the remaining ingredients and cook for another 5-10 min.  Serve on hamburger buns.  

 Mike and I had been out of ground beef for a few months and we just go a half of a beef and it is so nice to have ground hamburger again.  

 I skipped the chopped onion and green pepper and just added minced dried onion. 

 Browned and ready to go. 

 Adding chili powder

 worcestershire sauce

 flour, pepper and salt 


 Mixed up and ready
We added some melted cheese to our sandwich, which was a good combination.
