1 pound hamburger
1/3 cup ketchup (you could use your favorite BBQ sauce for more zip)
1 1/2 Tbsp Onion Soup mix
Cracked pepper and Salt
Put all the ingredients into a bowl and smoosh together. Cut some wax paper or parchment paper into 5 inch squares. I always use 2 plastic bags(sandwich size ziploc) over my hands and form burgers. Make sure they are not too thick and homemade burgers shrink so make them about 4 inches in diameter and about 1/2-3/4 of an inch thick. Place each individual burger on a piece of parchment. (Using the paper makes it so the burgers don't fall apart when putting them on the grill, and way less touching of raw meat:) ) Cook until there isn't any pink left! Makes 6 burgers.

I make this bread a couple times a month and freeze the loaves. It is an awesome recipe. So healthy and yummy!!! I got it from my sister-in-law, Louisa, who got it from Sarah's Mom and just tweaked it a bit.
I grind my own wheat, so I use more white flour than this recipe says because otherwise the bread doesn't rise very well!! I read on a package of a case of flour that I bought once that if you use 1Tbsp of lemon juice per 5 cups of flour it helps rise the bread and interacts with the gluten or something or other. Anyways, it helps make a yummy loaf!! Also, this recipe is so versatile. If you want only white bread, than just use white flour and you don't have to use red river!!
I have a convection oven so I put all 5 loaves in at the same time at 350. Enjoy!
