Hampatoes (Solar Cooked)

by Jim Simmons
(Boise, ID, USA)

Okay, this may sound like a weird recipe, but it works.

Cook up about 2 lbs of ground beef and 4-6 medium to large potatoes in separate containers in your solar oven. Add whatever spices you like to the ground beef.

After everything is cooked, drain the ground beef and most of the liquid from it. Crumble it up well.

Mash the potatoes, skin and all, to an even consistency.
Thoroughly mix the potatoes with the ground beef to make the concoction into patties just as if you were making hamburgers. (Too moist add a sprinkle of flour, too dry add a touch of water.) You can refrigerate the patties overnight or fry them as they are.

Pull out your parabolic solar cooker dish and put those puppies on until the edges of the potatoes are just slightly brown. If you use a touch of leftover bacon grease in the pan it adds a really nice flavor.

Serve hot on buns or toasted bread.

Now that your are done and starting to enjoy your "hampatoe", you might want to consider what you can do to cool down your house in the summer time to save a little electricity.
I don't promote any company or sell any products.
This is just information I feel the public should know about solar energy and how it could help you. Research gable and/or roof vents with solar panels on the internet and you may be surprised at how much energy you could save.


Thank you Jim for your great recipe, I am going to have to try sounds appetizing.

Thank you for the energy saving tip/suggestions as well.
