How to Make Lisa’s Lossemeat Sandwich


  1. In a good sized frying pan melt fat over medium heat and lightly salt bottom.

    Break ground beef up in frying pan and start crumbling it with the back of a wooden spoon-this is very important-the meat must end up being cooked up into small crumbles.
  2. Add chopped onion while browning meat.

    Keep working with the back of spoon to break up meat.

    When meat is browned, drain off any fat and return meat to skillet
  3. Add mustard, vinegar, sugar, and just enough water to barely cover meat in the pan. Cook, at a simmer, till water is all cooked out-between 15-20 minutes.
  4. Add salt and pepper to taste. Heat your hamburger buns, I just put ours in the microwave for a few seconds to get them nice and warm

    When buns are warm, put some cheese whiz on top of the bun, then add some meat and add some dill pickle slices, you can put some mustard and ketchup on them as well.

Five Quick Bread Recipes for Breakfast This Weekend

Some Saturday mornings I wake up and want a special treat. That’s when I turn to quick bread recipes.

While they’re called bread, the texture is similar […]
