Paula, Although I am living in Arizona, I still cook like a Queen-the southern way! Give me collards and cornbread or give me death. However, I can honestly say that I love southwestern food. I love the mouth watering spices from soup to seafood. Tomorrow my husband and I are taking a day trip to Sedona and I want to take a picnic lunch. Please add that to your website; suggestions for a fabulous picnic! Love you to pieces! Gayle

You have mentioned the onion burger several times on your shows and now on the internet. I want to share another recipe that was my favorite growing up. Southern Burgers Brown 1 chopped onion and pound of ground beef. Drain the fat. Add a can of Campbells chicken gumbo soup. The rest is added according to your taste. I use a dash or squirt of each. Worchester sauce ketchup yellow mustard salt and pepper. These are so yummy eaten open faced on a toasted bun with cheese. (fix your bun like you would cheese toast) Homeade fries of chips are really good with these

I'm making this ham agian today for the third time...I too add the glaze earlier. Everyone loves it and always ask for the recipe. I agree it is a perfect combination of ingredients.
