Hamburgers are great for either lunch or supper.  I think that every time I make them, I do something different….just to keep it interesting, know what I mean?


1 pound hamburger, 85/15

2 tsp. onion powder

2 tsp. garlic powder

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. pepper

spritz of canola oil

Mix hamburger with seasonings.  Make four hamburgers; I use my hamburger press.  I wish I could remember where I got it from, but can’t.  It’s pretty handy, though.
