Using Grinders - Part 1

If you have a food processor, you've probably wrestled with whether or not to get the grinder attachment. You probably wonder whether or not you'll ever use it.

I thought I never would. Until I was at a friend's house and he made the most amazing burgers for dinner.

The recipe was easy - one part chuck roast, one part sirloin, one part bacon. Did I have you at bacon? He was able to grind the three ingredients all together and make some of the best hamburgers I've ever tasted.

Needless to say I now have my own grinder attachment. And I've been making my own ground beef ever since - not always with bacon of course. It's been very cost effective. Also, I am able to mix beef with sausage when making meatloaf or meatballs.

We have a hand grinder and we've used it to grind meat or cranberries/apples/oranges for relish.  Yum!

That would be cool to have.  My husband would love it.

I do not have a grinder attachment. I have my Grandmother's antique grinder, but have never used it.
