Cook's Notes

This recipe creates 18-22 patties. Kids normally eat 1 patty while adults eat 2-3 per serving. Serve hot like a burger or eat cold for lunch the next day. This is a family favorite for generations, hot and cold. Traditionally, it is served with a Miracle Whip mayonnaise, lettuce and tomato. To spice it up, add hot sauce. You can also serve with traditional hamburger toppings including ketchup, mustard, onions, and pickles. You can also add minced garlic to the batter for more flavor. This recipe offers a great opportunity to teach young children the basics of cooking - how to whisk eggs, how to combine ingredients, how to measure, and how all the rare ingredients come together to make a delicious meal. For older kids and teens, teach them the proper handling of a knife and how to dice onion and green bell peppers. Teens may also be able to help with the griddle, with supervision. Offer a variety of toppings for kids to create their perfect sandwich. When kids help in the kitchen, they are more apt to try new recipes and eat healthier.
