Burger

Frito Pie Burger

Frito Pie Burger

Frito Pie is basically another version of chili cheese fries in Texas. It’s meaty, cheesy, and crunchy all in one. Now imagine that on top of of a beef patty sitting upon a brioche bun. That’s what our unhealthy dinner of the week was last week. We’ve been trying to stick to only one unhealthy…

Thai Peanut Butter, Bacon, Pineapple Burgers

Thai Peanut Butter, Bacon, Pineapple Burgers

I would never have thought that peanut butter on a burger could be great. With the help of bacon, grilled pineapple, Sriracha, and cilantro, i was proved wrong. There’s nothing complicated about this double pattied deluxe burger, but the flavors combine surprisingly well together to turn this unique sandwich into something you’ll be dying to…

Indian Lamb Burgers

Indian Lamb Burgers

Delicious way to use up leftover Indian take out? Indian burgers using the delicious sauces from your favorite Indian restaurant. For us, that’s India Gate’s tikka masala and raita. We doused our garam masala-coated lamb burgers in both of these sauces, and piled it on top of grilled Macrina buns with some sliced white onion.…

We had beautiful weather for Easter, and this past week we once again got a streak of warmth and sunshine. Naturally, we turned up the heat on the grill, and started planning some delicious and easy burgers to enjoy alongside the first pitcher of the season margaritas. Flipping through a cookbook, we saw a recipe for…

Rosemary and Roasted Garlic Burgers with Artichoke Hearts and Tomato

Lately we’ve been running out fresh ideas for one of our favorite foods, burgers. We are trying really hard not to repeat menu items, but we have been finding it somewhat difficult. However, this burger was randomly born from Dustin’s imagination recently. Once he mentioned adding artichokes, I was on board with this meal. The…

2 AM Burger

2 AM Burger

There’s a burger on the menu at Rock Bottom Brewery called the 2 AM Burger with American cheese, bacon, hashbrowns and a fried egg, all the elements you might expect to see on a breakfast menu. Our friend ordered the burger one time and just gave it a “meh” review, but the concept sounded good…

Hatch Chile Cheeseburgers + Hatch Chile Queso

Hatch Chile Cheeseburgers + Hatch Chile Queso

Best cheeseburgers ever. For the last few weeks of August, we are able to stock up on freshly roasted Hatch Chiles at our Whole Foods shipped in from New Mexico. We’ve pretty much been putting Hatch Chiles on everything we eat from our bagels and cream cheese at breakfast to sandwiches at lunch to these cheeseburgers…

Buffalo Chicken Burgers

Buffalo Chicken Burgers

Here’s another simple dish-transformed-to-burger recipe. This time around, it’s buffalo wings! All you need to do is combine lean ground chicken breast with some garlic powder, salt, pepper, crumbled blue cheese, and a touch of hot sauce. Add an egg to the mixture if it is too dry. Form into patties and grill. Place on…

Chicken Parmesan Burgers + Grilled Eggplant

Chicken Parmesan Burgers + Grilled Eggplant

I love taking the flavors of one dish— like chicken parmesan— and turning them into a burger. This burger is so simple— take lean ground chicken, add in some spices like oregano, dried basil, garlic with some salt and pepper, some shredded parmesan cheese, olive oil and breadcrumbs (there’s no magic ingredient amount— just until…

Cook Off Part 2: Sliders

Cook Off Part 2: Sliders

The second Chopped challenge is off, and like Chris, I chose a cuisine that I knew I could excel in. For me, that would be an ultimate burger in miniature form. The slider. Challenge #2 went down in my kitchen, and I got to use a new toy. Let me lead with the competition burger.…
