Burgers for the Boys (and Girls)

I’m just full of Jersey Shore references this month! Now you know how big a role those loveable Guidos and Guidettes play in my life…Not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing…

Anyhoo. We made burgers.

Burger Night is one of my favorite food nights because it involves a variety of toppings. Which means that no Burger Night is ever the same.

I thought I’d put together a little guide to Burger Night, so that you can enjoy one of your own!

Step 1: Buy some delicious 100% grass-fed (grass finished) ground beef. You could also use pastured turkey, but I secretly like beef burgers 10,000 times better than turkey burgers. That’s just me…

Step 2: Form your ground meat into whatever size burgers you desire. We usually do quarter pound burgers for grilling’s sake, but we’ve done half pounders too and let me tell you: they are biiiiiiig. You could add some spices to your burgers at this point if you wanted.

Step 3: Grill ’em up! Make sure not to start a grease fire…we did that once. We had a burger inferno on our hands….since then, I’ve learned to buy leaner ground beef…and to make M do all of the grilling.

Step 4: While your meats a grillin’, prepare your toppings and sides.

Step 4a: My favorite toppings include:

  1. Bacon
  2. guacamole (or just avocado)
  3. Fried eggs
  4. Portobello mushrooms
  5. caramelized onions
  6. Grilled peppers
  7. Sometimes extra sharp cheddar cheese…
  8. Other delicious things

Step 5: Top your burger.

Step 6: Eat it. Fork and knife are optional.

We had sautéed dinosaur kale and baked sweet potatoes with our burgers. My favorites! I learned how to saute vegetables in chicken broth without oil at the Whole Foods Store Tour. SO cool. AND delicious: the broth really adds a comforting flavor to the veggies…if that makes sense.

Burgers for the Boys!

What are your favorite burger toppings?
