Happy Memorial Day!

What's better on Memorial Day than the classic hamburger, but you may be surprised to see the ingredients. First, I have to say that Chris and I
l-o-v-e Bobby Flay's recipes and have several of his cookbooks. He (Bobby Flay) says that you should keep the ingredients for a hamburger should be kept to a minimum. Adding all kinds of ingredients into a hamburger is basically making meatloaf so why not just make meatloaf.

The Classic Burger

1 pound ground beef (In the case of hamburgers - leaner is not necessarily better. 80% ground beef works the best)
Olive oil

Shape the ground beef into patties. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper before grilling.

So the Classic Burger sounds boring to you, huh? No way! Top the Classic off with:

-Classics of tomato, lettuce, onion
-Avocado mayonnaise, pico de gallo
-Bacon, lettuce, tomato
-Grilled sweet onions

These are just a couple of our favorites off the top of my head. Any ideas out there?

  1. Extra sharp cheddar cheese, BBQ sauce and onion rings= cowboy burger. YUMMO

    So many mushrooms that they are falling off! and some Swiss cheese to help to try to hold them on.
