    "This is the oldest recipe I have. It was given to me by my aunt in Vivian, La., in 1931. This makes the most delicious cold sandwiches."​
    Ingredients

    1 pound regular or lean ground beef
    1/2 pound mild Italian sausage, casings removed
    1 medium onion, chopped
    1 cup cracker crumbs or cracker meal
    1 (6-ounce) can tomato paste
    3 eggs, beaten
    3 tablespoons chili powder
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon pepper
    2 bacon slices, halved
    Instructions

    1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
    2. Combine the ground beef, sausage, onion, cracker crumbs, tomato paste, eggs, chili powder, salt, and pepper in a large bowl; mix well.
    3. Place the bacon strips on the bottom of an 8 x 4-inch loaf pan. Place the ground beef mixture on top of the bacon. Pat down with fingertips to spread evenly.
    4. Bake 1 hour and 5 minutes, or until a meat thermometer reaches 175 F.
    5. Remove from the oven and let stand 10 minutes. Invert on a cutting board and slice.

    Just use the recipe and make pattys (that's what you call.. "Burgers", right?) instead :) If there's a will there's a way.

    I love these old recipes that call for cracker crumbs. My Grandma was always smashing crackers for topping. Love saltine crumbs on mac & cheese.

    I notice these old recipes don't seem to worry about calories or cholesterol.

    Yep. Good isn't necessarily fast, and is almost always worth the eating with joy, not gobbled just to fill a hole in a stomach.

    Calories were needed back then, and the fats are far better for you than the high-tech, cheap to produce, lab-rat killing substitutes that your body doesn't know what to do with.
