Burgers

Last night was burger night. SP doesn't eat beef, so he had turkey burgers. I had beef burgers. Fortunately, there was a break in the rain when it was time for dinner, so we were able to grill our burgers. Unfortunately, the gas ran out towards the end! But fortunately, they were cooked enough by the time the gas ran out!

We buy large packages of ground meat at Costco and then divide it into smaller portions and freeze it. Our portions of ground meat give us each 2 burgers. I never seem to make my patties the same way twice; I'm still searching for the 'perfect' homemade burger, but I have decided I don't like bread crumbs in the meat. No egg last night - you really don't need an egg to hold the patties together. I really like Worcestershire sauce in burgers, so I added that plus some black pepper and parsley. And of course BBQ sauce. Sometimes we have homemade BBQ sauce but last night we used a bottle of Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ Sauce.

SP likes his cheese melted on the burger and his bun toasted. I like to put my cheese on after and I prefer an untoasted bun. Last night we added roasted red pepper and avocado to the burgers. SP also added romaine. There really is a burger under all that stuff on his plate!
