|My Portabella Burger Deluxe|
Today, we chose to have burgers and being the foodie I am, I insisted (I do a lot of "insisting" lol) on making our own burger patties (so that I could customize lol). My gourmet burgers consisted of lean ground beef, chopped mushrooms, chopped onions and cooked, quinoa. I mixed it all up with some salt and pepper, two eggs and I added a splash of BBQ sauce. Patted them into patties, and placed in the fridge until ready to grill.
Other accompaniments included whole eggplants-skewered, sliced zucchinis-skewered, button mushrooms, halved-skewered, and a zesty, fresh Thai slaw, not skewered (recipe courtesy of Kraft Magazine). I added 2 tsp sesame oil and 2 tsp chili sauce to the dressing mix for an extra kick while substituting roasted peanuts for the cashews because I didn't have any on hand. It was awesome!
For the veggie freak (me), I grilled up a portabello mushroom cap with bbq sauce to make myself a deluxe veggie burger with Swiss cheese, cucumbers, tomatoes, lettuce, and Miracle Whip. Yum, yum, yum!!
Can't wait for the next time to grill! I seriously need one of those cheeky BBQ aprons lol.
