Burgers aren’t just something to be enjoyed at the pub — they make an easy, fast, and delicious weeknight dinner that both kids and adults love!
For the patties:
🔸 1 lb. lean ground beef
🔸 1 package of Burger Seasoning from Gourmet Village
🔸 1 egg
🔸 A few splashes of Worcestershire sauce
🔸 A small handful of breadcrumbs or rolled oats
🔸 Thick slices of sharp cheddar cheese
Put all the ingredients, except the cheese, into a large bowl, and mix with clean hands. Form into thick patty shapes — being sure that you don’t over-handle the meat, which can turn it tough.
Grill on the barbeque at medium-high heat, flipping once. After flipping, wait a couple minutes, then place the the slices of cheese on the patties.
🔸 Hamburger buns — charred a bit on the grill if you wish
🔸 Sliced tomato
🔸 Butter lettuce
🔸 Sliced red onions
🔸 Your condiments of choice — we truly recommend the Spicy Tomato Spread from Salt Spring Kitchen Co: it is mouthwatering on burgers!
🔸 Feel free to get creative with your toppings, too: caramelized onions, crispy bacon, and pickles are all great additions.
You can also whip up some easy, crispy oven fries:
🔸 Two large russet potatoes or sweet potatoes
🔸 Olive oil
🔸 Salt & pepper
Preheat the oven to 425. Cut the potatoes into slices or wedges, about 1” thick.
Toss the potatoes in olive oil, salt, and peppers. Spread them on a parchment-lined baking sheet, with at least an inch of space between each.
Roast until crispy, about 20 minutes.
Are you going to try this delicious, easy, crowd-pleasing meal this week? It’s perfect enjoyed on your sunny patio with your favourite cold beverage. Cheers!
