I was told by my father that the mix was sausage, hamburger and mashed potatos also. Is the old fashion potato chip factory still in town?

Hope that helps
Can you contact me with a detailed recipe? I left Mburg in 88' and I think of those burgers often. Thanks

Care to talk about it? I grew up there and have craved their burgers nightly since 1988. Would like to know how they are made.

was in town a few weeks ago and went to the wagon. noticed the patties were not the color you would expect from regular ground beef. i got to thinking maybe the secret is that the meat mixture is goetta, which is ground beef, ground pork, and oats. that would explain the pale color and the oats would explain why it gets crispy and has the certain texture. also, around when mr porter opened the wagon, not only was there alot of german influence on the food ala mixed sausages, etc. but also the need to use fillers such as oats due to the hard economic times, as well as the miamisburg flood. now my mouth is watering and im 1100 miles away from the burg, sh#t !

My husband introduced me to the hamburger wagon many, many years ago. We live in Cincinnati and our visiting inlaws in Kettering - making a stop at the wagon today! There is now a Marions pizza in Mason, OH!

My husband brought goetta home from the grocery store one day and said he heard it was really good sausage. I tried to fry it with no lunch and found the crumbling mixture to a a very similar look when fried to wagon burgers. I agree I think it is goetta and ground beef.

I lived in the Burg area...my son and family still live there. My daughterss are twins and went to Miamisburg HS and are doctors now...they had good training. Speaking of Rons and Cassanos...I heard that Ron used to work for Mama Cassano and that is why their pizzas are similar and fantastic. I am not sure about this story, so don't quote me. Hamburger Wagon...yes, they are unique.

Everyone is talking about pork sausage...You mean breakfast sausage with the taste of sage or what? Sausage comes in a bunch of different flavors. I want to duplicate them for my son..he loves HW. Not that he won't still go there occasionally because I am not in town that often. I think the flour idea is correct...making them crunchy, but I'm not sure about the sausage...maybe it is just ground pork.
