Diner Theme Birthday Lunch

My birthday celebration with my family had a Diner theme today.


It is quite hard to think of what to cook for my birthday parties.  I want my guests to enjoy the food and for me to get excited, as well.

My hamburger patties were made from scratch.


Mini Hamburger Patties

1/2 K. Monterey ground round
1/2 t. Salt
1/2 t. Pepper
1/2 t. Onion powder
1/4 C. White onion, chopped

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl.  Do not overmix or the patties will be tough.  Handle lightly and with care.

Divide into 8 portions weighing 75 grams each.

Pan fry and let it rest for a few minutes before putting it in the hamburger bun.

Johnsonville's Beddar Cheddar Sandwich


Condiments and fries


Fried Chicken


Boiled corn


Chili con Carne for the hotdog sandwiches


"Corn dog" was the favorite of everybody!


Goodness! I did not realize it was so hard to cook it.  As hard as tempura! I used the Maya Hotcake mix and reduced the amount of water from 3/4 C. to 1/2 C.  


I'm just not patient enough for it.  I could only fry six at a time and I think it took about 10 minutes per batch!


Ohhhh but my nephew, Renzo, loved it!

I even cooked it again tonight.  I ate 4 and gave him 3.
