Are you ready?! Here we go. It’s time for burger numero uno in the 20 Burger Series. I’m so excited to get this tasty project going. Just like on the Taco Series, I wanted to start with what I consider a “classic.” That is, a ground beef patty with traditional fixings.
Recipe: adapted from Bobby’s Perfect Burger via Food Network
– Ground Beef (I used 90/10)
– Salt & pepper
– Canola or olive oil
– Hamburger Buns (gluten-free version were Udi’s)
+ Toppings! Lettuce, tomato, onion, cheddar cheese & ketchup
+ Sides! Homemade, handcut baked sweet potato fries
We made ours in a pan on the stove (hey, it’s winter and we have no porch) and they were done in under ten minutes. To melt the cheese, I simply threw the lid on the pan and turned off the heat. No problemo.
This was a good kickoff to the 20 Burger series, but it wasn’t a show stopper. David and I both like a burger with a little more spice. So, while Bobby’s “Perfect” burger was anything but, it was a good bar that we can only raise as we create, and eat, 19 more burgers.
