True Blood Recipe of the week: Burgers Lafayette recipe from Charlaine Harris

I thought this was a great recipe for this week  - this is really a recipe from Charlaine Harris .

Sauce for Burgers Lafayette 
1/4 c vinegar
1/2 c water
1/2 t salt
a dash of cayenne
1  medium onion, chopped
2 T Worcestershire sauce
2 T brown sugar
1 T  prepared mustard
1/2 t pepper
1/2 c ketchup
2 T margarine
l  lemon, sliced extra thin (optional) 
Saute the onion (and lemon, if you choose to use it) in the margarine. Then  add all the other ingredients. Simmer about 20 minutes. Then place the broiled  hamburgers (or leftover roast slices) in the skillet and steep them in the sauce  over very low heat for a few minutes. Serve with extra sauce spooned on top when  you're ready.

From Book 8 From Dead to Worse

I stuck my head through the hatch to wave at the kitchen staff. The current cook at Merlotte’s was an ex-army guy named Carson. Short-order cooks come and go. Carson was one of the better ones. He’d mastered burgers Lafayette right away (hamburgers steeped in a former cook’s special sauce), and he got the chicken strips and fries done exactly right, and he didn’t have tantrums or try to stab the busboy

It isn't burgers Lafayette like in the books, but whe we mention burgers and Lafayette we just have to watch the brilliant 'Aids burger' scene from True Blood Season1.
