A long time Pittsburg Cafeteria favorite. Anyone who grew up in Pittsburg, California knows what a Pittsburger is!

  • 2 lbs. lean ground beef
  • 1 medium onion – chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic - minced
  • Salt, pepper to taste
  • Catsup (see directions below for amount)
  • 1 pkg. shredded cheddar cheese

    How wonderful to find this!! My Grandmother in-law worked at Foothills Elementary School in Pittsburg, Rosy Achterberg. She invented the Puttsburgers and our family's love them to this day! I will show her this, I'm sure she'll appreciate it.
