Hamburger New

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Mia in Germany

My husband's favourite burger shop - the only burger shop in our little village 35 years ago - still serves this Hamburger called "Hamburger Neu" which means "Hamburger New". Unluckily the owner of the place who invented this fabulous burger has died several years ago. There are new owners who serve the same burger, but it's not quite the same as it used to be, so we decided to make it ourselves. The onions used can be purchased in boxes in Germany. If you don't get them in the US, just fry your own, it's more work but even better I guess ;-)

Wow! I need more stars!!! I made two burgers out of this with cutting the ketchup mixture in half...I told the hubby that he needed a knife and fork to eat it...He doubted me...but after taking the photos he made a point of reminding me that I needed a fork and knife to eat the first bite was full of dancing flavors...I could only eat half of the was very filling but satisfying...thanks for posting the recipe...made for Spring 2014 PAC...=)
