Dear Heloise: I have a recipe for the best hamburgers for people who make them at home. Take two parts of lean hamburger meat and one part of ground sausage, mix well and shape into patties. Barbecue on the grill, fry or broil.

We were on vacation near Austin. At a cafe, we stopped and ate a hamburger, and it was good.

The owner told me what they used.
