1 lb. lean ground beef
1 egg
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/4 cup milk
1 tsp 1000 Island dressing [mayo and ketchup]
1 tsp ketchup
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/4 tsp black pepper
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp ground onion

Soak bread crumbs in milk and mix all ingredients well. Shape into small balls, place in refrigerator for about 2 hours to let the meat marinate with other ingredients. Lightly grease grill or frying pan. Fry meat, press to shape like hamburgers. Serve in hamburger buns.

Serving tip: For better results, spread the bun with ketchup, sprinkle with chopped onions if desired, serve with shoestring potatoes. Fritas are very popular in Cuba and are sold at little stands like hot dog stands in the United States.
