It seems that burgers are all the rage right now.
Truth be told, they are surely one of my favorite meals. Since I've become an old lady, I don't eat as many beef burgers anymore...you're more likely to find me noshing on a turkey burger. However, I always become overwhelmed by a sense of nostalgia when I think about burgers. They remind me of Saturday afternoons at my Grandma Sarah's as a child. She'd whip out her cast iron skillet, sautee onions and then fry up the ground beef patties that she'd got from Dosters, the local IGA. Not much for buns, she'd serve them up between slices of "light" (a.k.a. white) bread with ketchup, mustard and a side of home fries or chips. Goodness! My mouth is watering.
I really like to try different options and combinations with burgers. Not too long ago, Mr TBS and I cheffed up this Mar-A-Lago turkey burger. I agree with Oprah (as it was featured on an episode of her show): this is one of the best burgers ever!
I recently stumbled across a post from one of my favorite sites, Bon Appetit. If you're adventurous and want to grind your own meat, this is a great step-by-step outline.
My favorite burger right now is a traditional turkey burger with blue cheese dressing and caramelized onion jam from Sensatiables. It's heaven between bread.
What's your favorite burger and toppings?
