Hi I saw Paul make a great burger the other day on the food network. She called it a Samberger after a friend. It had a fried egg on it - I cant seem to find the recipe anywhere. Any ideas?

I like the candied dill recipe. I actually have a great recipe for "bread and butter pickles" I got from a friend and it is a family fav. Would love to share with you. You are an awsome lady and I wait patiently to one day meet you and hopefully taste your good southern cookin. My mom was german so I am not real good at cooking southern but I sure do love it.

These pickles are VERY GOOD I have made them quite a few times. I have also made them the same way only using hamburger dill sliced pickles, they taste the same but they are already sliced, so you can make them quicker. I have given them too friends, and everyone likes them.

These are delicious. I have made them several times. However, 99% of Paula's recipes are fantastic. The other 1% are only wonderful.
