Giant Stuffed Burgers
Hot German Potato Salad

Cooking time: 40 minutes for menu             Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

    An inside out burger, with the cheese and fried onions in the middle.  When the cheese in the middle it hot enough to melt, I consider the burger done.  The German Potato Salad will be for 2 meals.

Giant Stuffed Burger

Total time: 35 minutes    longer if using oven  
    You could make smaller burgers, but we like this big one.  Cut into wedges, with cheese oozing out of the center.... Serve with or without extra ketchup.

Hot German Potato Salad

Total time: 35 minutes
    Potato salads are always popular in the summer and every country seems to have their own version.  Germany is lucky enough to have 2: German Summer Salad, which is normally served at room temperature, and this one, traditionally served hot.  We usually eat it cold the second time... This makes enough for 2 meals.
