Found in a super old cookbook from grandma called "The Ozark Pain Killer and Hog-Lot Cookbook". This recipe is supposed to be like the yummy drive-in burgers from days of the past.

  1. Mix up all the ingredients. You may add up to 1T of water if you need to make the mixture more pliable.
  2. Stretch out a long piece of wax paper and make meat into very thin patties (you may use a rolling pin if you like); you want them thin enough so that the edges will get crispy when cooking. Make the patties larger than the buns, as they will shrink a bit when cooking.
  3. Fry the burgers in a skillet on medium high until crispy and cooked through - it won't take long if you make the patties really thin. You may want to get 2 skillets going at a time to speed up the process.
  4. In the meanwhile, toast the buns til crisp.
  5. Serve burgers on the buns with mustard.
