Yesterday for lunch:

protein - chipotle black bean burger (Morningstar Farms)
toppings - avocado, ranchera salsa, strip of crispy bacon
bun - actually base - cilantro cole slaw

It was gooood!

I am also a fan of:

protein - 80/20 organic grass-fed beef
mix-ins - none - seasoned with salt and pepper and maybe a little Montreal Steak seasoning
toppings: mayo, lettuce, garden tomato, Claussen thin sliced pickle rounds, ketchup
bun: toasted potato or sesame seed

I also like barbecue sauce and cheddar and Swiss/blue cheese with mushrooms.

Always medium rare if I have my druthers.

I enjoy those Morningstar burgers too.

I found Montreal seasoning in the cabinet and gave my burger a heavy coating. Pan cooked and slathered with grated swiss cheese and baby port mushrooms. Thxs for the inspiration.

I love to make the burgers of my youth which seem currently out of fashion, but I am currently out of fashion too so everything’s good. :smiley:
Thin burgers at pretty high heat to get that crisp edge that really only comes from a flattop. Cheese as desired with grilled onions smushed into the whole shebang
pre bun.
Lettuce, tomato :tomato:, mayonnaise and mustard. And pickles.


That crispy edge is the best! I like your style! Under appreciated who says?!


Ground chuck , sirloin , and short rib. Grind your own or put it in the food processor , which works well .Just pulse . Form into thin patties . Put in fridge for 20 min . Remove .salt both sides .
Cook on cast iron grill pan until you get the crispy edges . Keep juicy . Add a slice of american cheese. Cover for a minute until cheese melts . Toast 2 pieces of white bread . Remove burger and place on toast cheese side down. . Simple condiments is all it needs . Slice burger sandwich in half .

Burger garnish on blue cheese wedge salad. “Tastes like the tail end on a Whopper,” my husband said.

Another nice looking plate! Nice idea to make the burger the garnish.

I can’t decide if that’s a compliment or a sleight, assuming he was still talking about burgers.
Maybe both… :smiley:

I think it was well meant :smiley:

Last night was 80/20 grass fed ground beef seasoned with salt, smoked paprika, Penzeys Mural of Flavor and aleppo pepper

Medium rare

Mine on a pile of romaine and spinach, his on grilled rounds of sweet potato

Both scattered with sungold garden tomatoes, avocado, smoky cheese and bacon.

I used leftover crema de aji for “dressing” (the aji amarillo plants are loaded this time of year so its a regular condiment around here.)
