postheadericon Coal Region Barbecue Burgers

In the Coal Region, we refer to a sandwich made with browned ground burger and a sauce (ketchup, mustard, sugar and vinegar) as “barbecues”  (see Coal Region Barbecue recipe)…many other regions refer to this type of sandwich as a “sloppy Joe”. This recipe is a twist on the flavors and presentation of our beloved Coal Region Barbecue in that it uses hamburger patties simmered in a sauce rather than crumbled browned ground beef. This recipe came to me through a multi-generation collection from my best friend who lived in Ashland, Pa. in the coal region; it was in her mother’s recipe box when she inherited it. You can make this recipe a day or two before serving and simply reheat. It is budget friendly and kid-friendly.

  • 1/4 cup sweet pickle relish
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 Tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon vinegar

Instructions

  1. Mix tomato soup, relish, onion, brown sugar, vinegar, and Worcestershire sauce together in a bowl.
  2. Heat butter/oil in frying pan on medium high heat and add the burger patties. Brown them on both sides. (Don't crowd the pan, you want them to brown, not just steam on the surface.) Drain excess grease from pan when all burgers are cooked.
  3. Add sauce mixture to pan on top of the burgers.
  4. Simmer burgers in the sauce 10 - 15 minutes or until patties are cooked through.
  5. Serve on burger buns with extra sauce if desired.

postheadericon Amish Funeral Sandwich

What is it with these Amish “Funeral” recipes?? (see Amish Funeral Pie post). Actually, these little snacking sandwiches are found in many areas of the US and are usually known as “funeral sandwiches”.  However, they are VERY popular among the Amish and Mennonite in the Pa Dutch region and show up at funeral meals, church suppers and pot-lucks all the time. This recipe came to me courtesy of my friend who grew up in a Penn Dutch family in the Lehigh Valley of Pennsylvania (Bethlehem, Pa. to be precise), labeled as “Amish Funeral Sandwiches” and I have kept the name the same in honor of Mabel, the lady who shared the recipe with me. These are traditionally made with King’s Hawaiian Rolls, but if you are not a fan of King’s, you can use the white rolls found in grocery store bakeries, usually labeled “dinner rolls” — they are square rolls packed in a block of 12 and look like the King’s Hawaiian. These travel well, can be assembled well ahead of baking time, and they usually disappear quickly. If desired, you can sprinkle some poppy seeds on top of the rolls before baking.  COOK’S NOTE: If taking these to a gathering or pot-luck, bake them in a disposable baking pan — easy clean up and no dish to collect after.
