CFCA serves more than 18,000 sponsored children and elderly in Honduras. A CFCA mothers group there, the Faith and Hope mothers group, sells homemade hamburgers to those in their community. They made such amazing hamburgers that we had to get the recipe and share it with you, along with a special sauce they make to go with the burgers. Here is part one of the recipe!

The mothers make and sell these hamburgers, and their recipe makes 40 burgers! You may want to adjust the recipe based on how many hamburgers you plan to serve.

2. Next, add the mayonnaise, mustard, sugar, milk and sour cream to the blender. Liquefy for about 3 minutes. If sauce becomes too thick, you can add a bit of milk or water.

3. Once the sauce is almost ready, add the ketchup and liquefy for about one more minute. It should be a light pink color.
