Last Wednesday was the day Teen Daughter and I planned as the day that she would help to cook supper so that she could start to learn how to cook. And even though she approached the event as something that Mom was making her do, it turned out fun. We did the hamburger soup which is so easy and economical and it was a good lesson for her that when she is on her own she can make a really good meal quickly with just a little effort. And one pot would feed her several meals so she could easily freeze some if she wanted. A good lesson in economics also. For as much as it would cost her to eat out she made a delicious dinner that would feed her many times over. She did a great job!
UPDATE: Sausage Burgers are just basically Mennonite Sausage that has been made into patties by the butcher rather than into links. If your local store or butcher does not do that you can do it yourself by snipping the link and squeezing the sausage meat out of the link and forming your own patties. It's already seasoned so you don't have to add anything. You can do this with any of your favorite kind of sausage. I just broil mine under the broiler approximately 5 minutes on each side until browned and cooked through and serve with all the regular favorite burger fixin's. Makes a wonderful change.
