So while Jim was busy dusting off the old grill that he's had since about 2006, I was busy trying to find the grilling utensils and other items -- oh and making the burgers, pasta salad and sweet potato fries. Carbs. YUM!
I found them!
Burgers made! I never really use the same "recipe" twice. I opt for whatever is in my fridge, or whatever spices are striking my fancy. For these burgs, I used a 85/15 meat, since it was on sale. I usually prefer 90/10 or even higher lean meat if the price is right. Anyway, I tossed in a bit of leftover feta cheese, scallions, chipotle cholula sauce, a dash of seasoned breadcrumbs, garlic salt, onion salt and fresh ground pepper. I made my patties and indented my thumb in the center to make for an evenly cooked burger.
Jim started cleaning off the grill as I started preheating the oven for the sweet potato fries. I also picked up a propane tank from 7/11 (thanks for the recommendation Aunt Joyce!). And we were good to go...
