Welfare Burgers
 
a sassafrassy recipe 
 
1 lb.  ground beef
1/4 cup  warm tap water
1/3 cup  dry oatmeal or bread crumbs
1/4 cup  finely chopped onion
1 or 2 clove  garlic, minced
1/2 tsp  salt
1/8 tsp  pepper
 
place the raw hamburger in a bowl. add the water, oatmeal, onion, garlic, 
salt and pepper. use your hands to mix and mash the stuff all together 
until everything is blended evenly. shape the mixture into patties with 
your hands. make four large patties or 6 smaller ones. preheat a skillet 
over medium-high heat for a couple of minutes. place the patties onto the 
dry preheated skillet. sear them on one side, cooking until they are a 
nice 
dark brown. then flip them over with a pancake turner and turn down the 
heat to medium low. cover the pan with a lid or a pizza pan. allow the 
burgers to cook slowly for at least ten minutes. turn them over again, 
recover and cook for five more minutes. they should be a lovely crusty 
brown on the outside, and gray colored inside, all the way through to the 
center. drain the burgers on paper towels or brown paper bags for a moment 
or two before serving. these can be served on buns with all the normal 
burger fixing. however, they are equally good plain, as individual meat 
loaves. serves 4. double this recipe to serve a hungry family of 6. good 
with spinach, instant mashed potatoes and canned pineapple.
