  • 1/2 cup condensed tomato soup
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 3 Tbsp. grape jelly
  • 1 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp. prepared mustard, I like to use yellow
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp celery seed
  • 6-8 hamburger buns


  • n a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain.
