Ketchup (not Catsup) Hill – The Ultimate Comfort Food
(Serves 2)

This is not strictly a hamburger sandwich, but it is a hamburger! The ingredients are simple – it’s all in the mixing.
-Peel, quarter and boil 2 Yukon Gold potatoes until done; then mash your favorite way, preferably with lots of milk/half-and-half and butter. A little lump or two is OK.
-Open package of Birds Eye frozen peas and cook briefly until done to your liking, definitely not mushy.
-Sauté in butter two patties of ½ pound (or less) of not-lean chopped chuck or other “good” – I mean good tasting – hamburger meat, to the doneness you like. We cook it very rare so you can actually taste the beef.
-Place a large scoop of mashed potatoes, a large scoop of peas and a patty on each plate.
-Chop the patty into small bite-sized pieces and mix with the mashed potatoes and peas.
-Form into a mound i.e., Hill. Rough cut mix is best – don’t want it mushy.
-“Adjust the seasoning,” i.e., sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper.
-The coup de grace is a healthy helping of ketchup pored over the top of the mound.
-Some like the ketchup mixed into the mound, but that’s wrong. It must by flowing down the sides of the hill.

Now that’s Ketchup Hill!
This will be one of the most satisfying comfort foods you will ever eat! I learned this “recipe” in Nursery School 65 years ago. I loved it then, I love it now.

Start with a regular burger and add bacon. Then melt mozzarella cheese on top and drop on an onion ring or two while the cheese is still bubbly. Finish off with a drizzle of chilli on top to make the bun moist and delicious.

Start off with one of AJ’s hamburgers (they are already perfect) on a yummy potato bun/roll. Add ketchup. Add a layer of frenchfries. Add a sprinkle of salt (if desired). Add a little more ketchup. Cover with top of bun and enjoy… Yum yum yum. AJ has all the perfect ingredients already, and putting them together in the right way is so delicious!

First grill red peppers so they are ready to top hamburger. Mix 85% ground round, blend in KC Masterpiece Original sauce, and garlic powder. Form patties. Use grill pan to cook or barbeque if available. I use Todd English indoor grill pan which is fabulous. Sautee onions in butter until translucent. Serve patty on buttered grilled bun, and top with pickle, red pepper and sauteed onion. Salt & Pepper to taste.

If this doesn’t suit you, run over to AJ’s and bring home your cooked hamburgers, with home made fries like I do. :-)

[u] Plain, simple, best. [/u]

Have butcher grind you a pound of sirloin.
and give him a cleaned, quartered yellow NY onion to put in the grinder with the meat.
Grind TWICE (this is a great secret.)

Take it home, give 8 dashes (large drops) Worcestershire Sauce,
( If you like them well done, or worse, add 4 tbl spoons beef broth.)
mix up and make 4 burgers.

Cook, (preferably on grill,)
(add American cheese if you want a cheeseburger,)
put on soft roll, add catsup, thin slice of raw onion.

Start with a beef filet mignon.
Ask the butcher to clean and tie it…then grind the stuff he cut off.
That residue is just enough for one perfect burger.
Rush home and get out a heavy fry pan…add a generous pat of butter and heat.
Dump the ground filet in the hot butter and sear on each side.
Serve with Grey Poupon.
