Jay and I tested out a new recipe and trust us, this is one you're gonna love so much that you might make it twice in one week! We wanna say a special thanks to Stauffers of Kissel Hill Supermarket for supplying the groceries and the recipe. You can find the recipe below and also at

Ranch Burgers-

Ingredients: 1½ pounds ground beef, 4 teaspoons Ranch Rub, 4 hamburger buns, split, ¼ cup prepared creamy ranch dressing, 2 tablespoons canned French-fried onions, Romaine lettuce and tomato slices.

Ingredients for Ranch Rub: 2 tsp sweet paprika, 2 tsp dried thyme, 1½ tsp salt, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp onion powder, ½ tsp ground black pepper, ½ tsp ground red pepper, ½ tsp ground white pepper

Instructions for Ranch Rub: combine all ingredients. Store in airtight container. Shake before using.

Directions: lightly shape ground beef into four 3/4-inch thick patties. Press Ranch Rub onto patties. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Place patties in skillet; cook 12 to 15 minutes to medium (160 degrees F) doneness, until not pink in center and juices show no pink color, turning once. Serve in buns with dressing, onions, lettuce and tomato.

Homemade French Fries-

Ingredients: potatoes, flour and salt.

Directions: cut potatoes down to French fry size, slicing about ½ inch wide and 2-3 inches long. Fill large bowl with water and 2 tablespoons of salt. Place fries in water and allow to soak about 15 minutes. While fries are soaking, heat oil in deep fryer or skillet. Remove fries from water and dry with paper towel. Pour 2 cups of flour into ziplock bag and add potatoes by handful then shake until fries are completely covered. Add fries to hot oil and cook 4-6 minutes. Allow to cool before serving
