US American Meal

A classic American burger meal with onion rings and mashed potato on the side and ice cream soda to wash it all down. My initial plan was a native American meal using recipes I had collected years back. That was back in Arizona where prickly pear grew in my garden and I had sources for saguaro fruit jelly and all the other ingredients. I don't have that yet here in Texas. So I switched to a classic burger meal.


The burger buns were fresh from the oven. I did not make my foolproof sourdough buns but instead made these quick rising buns using commercial yeast. For the patti black beans wins hands down. This black bean and oats patti was moist and flavorful. The onion rings are 'fried' in the oven and were a real hit. They were so loved that I have made them a couple times already. Mashed potatoes are always welcome in our house. The ice cream soda was delicious made the old fashioned way.


I did not use any new ingredients for this recipe but the whole meal is a keeper. I had made blueberry sauce for an experimental recipe that did not go as I planned and I had plenty of sauce left over. My daughter used the blueberry sauce to make ice cream soda everyday for a week after we had this meal.

Here are the recipes for the dishes on the menu
And for dessert
