Jalapeño Popper Burgers

Jalapeño Popper Burgers

Although we’ve made jalapeño chicken popper sandwiches that might be a little more true to the spirit of a jalapeño popper, but these burgers are lightly spicy from jalapeños with lots of creamy cheesy goodness− all of the best parts of a jalapeño popper. Perfect for grilling season when it is too hot to turn…

Chicken Burgers with Brie + Balsamic Strawberries + Bacon + Basil

Chicken Burgers with Brie + Balsamic Strawberries + Bacon + Basil

There are a lot of B’s in that title, but everything is so important to the flavors of the dish that I just couldn’t bear to leave one out! I’ve seriously been in a creative run lately when it comes to new dinner idea. Browsing foodgawker, I stumbled upon an impressive looking chicken burger that…

Caprese Burgers

Caprese Burgers

We’ve made caprese sandwiches before, but we’ve never put all of that goodness together with a big juicy beef patty. It was a good decision. I’d been dreaming of    putting creamy burrata on top of a burger (it’s sort of been one of my recent food obsessions), so I decided why not include all…

Perfect (But Basic) Cheeseburgers with Crispy Onion Rings

Perfect (But Basic) Cheeseburgers with Crispy Onion Rings

Sometimes the classics are the best. Despite our desire to be super creative in the kitchen, sometimes you just want a simple, juicy cheeseburger. We want to make an elevated cheeseburger with high quality ingredients but nothing too wacky. We went with a basic beef patty, cheddar, onions, and tomato on a poppy seed bun.…

Dork Burgers

Dork Burgers

One of our favorite Seattle places was a burger joint called Lunchbox Laboratory. Once they opened a location in downtown Bellevue, you better believe we were eating there way more often than we should have been. We tried many different versions, but by far their standout burger was “The Dork,” with a duck-pork hybrid patty…

EZ’s World Famous Bean Burger

EZ’s World Famous Bean Burger

EZ’s, a San Antonio staple, was always a great place to hang out and grab a delicious burger. One of their specialties is the EZ’s World Famous Bean Burger. I know what you’re thinking. Vegetarian— yuck. If you’re a vegetarian, this bean burger is not for you. It’s a  beef patty mixed with black beans,…

Fried Oyster Sliders

Fried Oyster Sliders

Before I met Dustin if you’d have told me that I’d like oysters, even fried ones, I would have looked at you like you were a crazy person. I think that just goes to show that with a willingness to try new foods, your palette will grow, and you will learn to like love things…

Salmon Burgers with Horseradish Mayo

Salmon Burgers with Horseradish Mayo

Salmon burgers were a regular part of our repertoire back at Rice, but we just bought pre-made ones from Whole Foods. Now that we pretty much live in the salmon capital of the world, I can’t believe we haven’t yet tried to make our own. Since we are moving in less than a month and…

Bourbon Gorgonzola Burgers

Bourbon Gorgonzola Burgers

We’ve been using bleu cheese pretty frequently. In addition to the macaroni and cheese from July 4th, I’ve been crumbling it on sandwiches and into my pasta at lunch. Plus, it’s a frequent item on our “Trader Joe” nights. Basically “Trader Joe” nights are nights that we don’t want to cook, so we stop at…

Pizza Burger Sliders

Pizza Burger Sliders

Last week at Trader Joe’s we sampled some of their frozen pizza burgers in-store. Dustin and I both thought they were pretty tasty, so I grabbed a box to eat for quick weekday lunches. Dustin was surprised to find out that their pizza burgers are completely vegetarian, soy patties. He said he remembered distinctly tasting…
