BBQ Hamburgers and an award!

This is another one of my mom’s recipes.  I kind of forgot how good they were until I tried one the other day.

These wonderful hamburgers are in the same realm as Sloppy Joe’s.  I would say they aren’t as sloppy, but they kind of are.  They are quickly browned with onions and then simmered in a wonderful barbecue sauce that soaks into the burgers.  They are yummy…and sloppy.

I won an award today!  The wonderful Pam @ Pam’s Midwest Kitchen Korner gave me a Liebster Award!  Liebster is German (which is very fitting because I am German) for “Favorite” or “Dearest” and it is meant to highlight up and coming blogs.  It is a peer recognition award given from one blogger to another – I love it.  Thank you Pam!

Please check out her blog…if you like my food, you will love hers:-).  The first recipe on her site that got my attention was her beef tenderloin tips.  She also has a lot of fish recipes (which I love) like this crunchy parmesan encrusted tilapia.  On the sweet side she has a fresh peach cake that I am making for Jim (his favorite) as soon as summer starts to roll around.  Thanks again Pam, and I will pass this along in the next few days!

  1. Words Of Deliciousness says:

    Congratulations on the award! Your BBQ hamburger looks delicious, it sounds a little like the sloppy joe recipe I posted a couple of days ago. I can see where this recipe would probably not be quite as messy as sloppy joes are.

  2. Yay Becki, congrats!!! This looks delicious, will try! But first I have to check out and make your Thai soup, yum!

    • Thanks, Karen! You would love that soup and it is really simple. If you need any curry paste or fish sauce you can borrow some:-)

  3. I love sloppy joes so these would be something I would enjoy… Congrats on the award.
