2 pieceswhite sandwich bread (binder), crust removed, cut into small pieces (smaller than half an inch)
4 minced garlic cloves
1/3 cuplow fat milk
1 teaspoonfreshly ground black pepper
Optional: 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper or cajun spice for added heat (be mindful of salt in your choice of cajun spice, adjust kosher salt lower, if necessary)
2 tablespoonworcestershire sauce (or try your favorite steak sauce)
2 pounds85% lean ground beef
1 pound ground bacon (fat = flavor)

~Mix the Milk and Bread together until it’s a thick paste.
~Add in Worcestershire, Ketchup, Salt, Pepper & Garlic to the paste and mix (don’t overmix).
~Break up the Beef and Bacon into pieces before spreading it around in the remaining paste. Mix well, but don’t overdo it.
~Quickly form about 10 patties. Do this fast so it stays cold.
~Refrigerate until you’re ready to grill. Important Note: Make sure meat is cold before grilling so the fat doesn’t melt off too fast. As Chef Ed would famously say to all of our culinary students, “Fat = Flavor”
(This is similar, but not the same as Frato’s Famous Bacon & Beef Burger Patties)

While the kids are carving Pumpkins for Halloween or out Trick or Treating, you can use some of those pumpkin leftovers to make a delicious Pumpkin Puree. Recipe from Chef Ed of Frato’s Pizza & Catering in Schaumburg!
Homemade Pumpkin Puree
Servings: Makes 2 loaves
Cook Time: 65 Minutes
Total Time: 1 Hour 30 Minutes
2 cups all-purpose flour (sifted)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 cups sugar
1-1/2 sticks (3/4 cup) unsalted butter, softened
2 large eggs
1 15-ounce can 100% pure pumpkin or 14 ounces home made Pumpkin Puree
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly grease two 8 ½” x 4 ½” loaf pans.
Combine flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and spices in a bowl; use a whisk to mix well and set aside.
In large bowl of an electric mixer, at medium speed, beat butter and sugar until just blended. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Continue beating until very light and fluffy, a few minutes. Beat in pumpkin.
At low speed, beat in flour mixture until combined.
Turn batter into prepared pans, dividing evenly, and bake for about 65 – 75 minutes, or until cake tester inserted in center comes out clean. Let loaves cool in pan about 10 minutes, then turn out on wire rack to cool completely.
To Make Homemade Pumpkin Puree
2 Small Pie Pumpkins
Water as needed (at most a cup)
Cut Pumpkin Stems off of the pumpkins and cut in half
Remove the seeds with a spoon and set aside to roast if wanted
Place Pumpkins Skin Side up on a cookie Sheet
Roast the Pumpkins in a 375 degree oven for Roughly 25 to 30 min. The skin should easily come off the pumpkin.
Remove from oven and let cool. Roughly 15 to 20 min
Remove all skin and place in Food Processor or Blender
At Low Speed, Puree the Pumpkin and slowly add in water till it has the
Consistency of a thick Apple Sauce.
Remove from the machine and use as needed
