Burger Days


I love burgers, big ones, small ones, hot ones, cold ones, bacon ones, cheesy ones, oooo I love burgers.

Every time we go out to eat I am always looking for the burger on the menu. Sad but true even fine dining I want burgers lol. But I have changed my ways I tell you I only look for creativity only … NOT!!!! I can’t help it the burger always calls my name. And burgers are so so so easy to make and you can put 10000000 twists on the classic burger and make is something more special than it already is. So for one of my favorites please see below … and above :)

All you need.

Oh and for the onion mix you will need.

Melt your butter.

Add onions.

Toss is around.

Add brown sugar.

Yummy already.

Cook till nice and browned.

For your delicious burger.

Season ground beef with garlic.

Seasoned salt.

Add tabasco.

Mash it all up.

Add pepper.

Roll into a nice big ball.

Wrap one strip of bacon around the ball.

Then another across.

Now toss onto the grill or griddle.

Smoosh them down. Let them cook to your liking.

Meanwhile on the other side of the ranch……

Butter your buns.

Grill on pan for about 3 minutes or until they are nice and golden brown.

When the burger is almost done, top with a slice of colby cheese or whatever you prefer.

Oh mama!!!

Top with caramelized onions.

Toss in your bun … and weep.
