3 tablespoons dried onions or 3/4 cup of finely diced onions
cup water, for beef
1 cup water, for onions
1 teaspoon onion powder
12 Dinner Rolls (2.5

- Roll the hamburger out to 1/4-inch thick. Remove plastic wrap cut meat into 3-inch squares. Poke holes in each piece five times with a plastic straw. You should get between 12 to 15 squares.
