“Help I forgot to buy ketchup and dinner is going to be ready in 15 minutes.”
Imagine me watching my hamburgers cooking and going to the fridge to realize I was missing a crucial ingredient – ketchup. My family enjoys ‘Naked Hamburgers’ as a staple at dinner time. (Naked Hamburgers are burgers served without a bun.)
I thought about using salsa and calling them Mexican burgers or laying a bit of pasta sauce under the burger and laying a slice of avocado and piece of basil on top for Italian burgers. I just wasn’t feeling the love so I did what all of us would do, I made my own ketchup. It was fast and my family loved the fresh taste this ketchup offers.
