1/2 cup catsup
1/2 cup water
1/2 tablespoon paprika
1/8 teaspoon cayenne or Zip
1 pound ground beef
1 onion, very finely chopped
1 tablespoon prepared mustard
1 tablespoon flour
1/2 to 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

"everything" (sliced dill pickles, catsup, mustard, chopped onions)

In pan, combine catsup, water, and paprika and heat thoroughly. Add beef, onion, mustard, flour, salt and pepper. Stir well. Cook gently for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve in hamburger buns with condiments. This recipe doubles, triples, and so on until you can feed everyone.
