I have memories from when I was a child, watching my dad mix various ingredients into ground beef to make hamburger patties. They always added that extra special flavor that made them so much better than just plain hamburgers.
My Dad would get a large amount of ground beef at the local Butcher’s Shop to bring home for hamburgers. He would make the patties and put them between wax paper squares to freeze a batch for us to enjoy throughout the summer. It’s one big reason I would love to have a big freezer at my house now.

Vickie’s Scalloped Potatoes
One of our favorite items to set beside a great family feast. Not everyone in our family likes stuffing. So I began making a special potato dish to go along with those family holiday meals.
