From: My across-the-street neighbors growing up were our best friends. Elizabeth and Danielle were like our other sisters and we spent more time during the summer in their back yard than our own, I think. Their dad, Carl, was known for his hamburgers. Man, he could make a mean hamburger! Finally one time I paid attention to what he put in it. You won't believe how good these are!
1 lb ground beef
2 Tbsp your favorite barbecue sauce
1 Tbsp of ketchup
a generous pinch of salt
a generous pinch of sugar
two generous pinches of cinnamon
(all the measurements are general estimations... I just add it until it looks about right)
Add all the ingredients in a bowl and knead well so that the seasonings are well mixed into the meat. Form it into patties and grill it! Yummmmmm.
I use this combination of spices for ground beef in all sorts of recipes like Stromboli.
