Gourmet Hamburgers

So the mystery surrounding my profile name is solved here, yes if you are anything like me you love the taste of a good burger. Summer is fast approaching and us suburbanites are ready to fire up the grill and do some outdoor cooking! I happen to love hamburgers but my love affair with this delicacy comes only once in a while because of the seasons here in Oregon. So when I get the chance to grill a burger I want it to be the best I can have. I hope you enjoy these recipes, feedback would be great!

The Perfect Burger

Ingredients

2 lbs ground beef (lean)

1/2 lb of sausage

Crumbled thick bacon

Fresh Ground Pepper

Season salt

Garlic Powder

Onions (grilled)

Cheddar Cheese shredded

Ciabatta Bun

Olive Oil

Preparation:

Mix your hamburger with the crumbled bacon and sausage, seasoned salt, pepper, and garlic powder into a mixing bowl. Mix the meats with the spices and sauce thoroughly. Form your hamburger patties (I suggest when making your patties that you press them flat to fit the bun). Fry your burgers using olive oil on the pan for about 8 to 10 minutes 4 to 5 minutes per side until cooked through. Cut an onion into thin rings and then cut the rings in half. Fry the onions strings in a pan using olive oil until they are soft and jeweled. Remove the patties from the pan, brush olive oil on your bun and place your buns on the pan for about a minute until toasted. Then place your patties on the bun when it is done.

Special Sauce:

Honey Mustard

Sweet Relish

Mayonaise

Light Brown Sugar

Cut an onion into thin rings and then cut the rings in half. Take foil and wrap your onion strings in the foil and place on the grill for about five minutes. In the last couple of minutes of grilling add your onion strings and pepper-jack cheese slices to your patties. Remove the patties from the grill, grill your buns about a minute for a crunchy treat and then place your patties on the buns. Top with mayonnaise more blue cheese and a hint of BBQ sauce and enjoy your juicy spicy blue cheese burger.

Cook up the egg sunny side up in a pan and place the egg on the first patty and add your jalpenos on top and melt the cheese on top of that, drip more tabasco sauce on top, now add the chili, then add the lettuce. Repeat this process minus the egg with a second top patty. Add Mayonnaise, and mustard.

      I just made your Island burger. It seemed to me if someone who likes these atomic bomb burgers likes pineapple on a burger, I'd give it a try. And I liked it.

      Wow thanks sheila b. I'm glad you like it. It's always been fun for me to try out different kinds of burgers. My wife doesn't have the taste for the exotic hamburger like I do but she enjoys her burgers with just plain lettuce tomato and cheese. I like to be adventurous when I grill them up. I also enjoy patty-melts with caramelized onions and long thin cut pickle slices and thousand island dressing.

      I'm a vegetarian so I'll take the bun, the American cheese, lettuce and tomato!
