Gourmet Hamburgers

If you love fresh burgers hot off the grill, this is a recipe you have to try.  I’ve adapted it from Ina Garten’s Real Hamburgers recipe. We eat these at least once a week in the summertime.

If you’re gluten free, as I am, try them on Udi’s gluten free hamburger buns! Lightly toasted, they’re more like a kaiser roll than a squishy burger bun, so they hold up well to lots of nummy toppings.

In this picture, I served my burger with Cotswold cheese, red onions (why are they not called purple onions???) and lettuce with a side of red peppers.

    Oh, that sounds wonderful! We’re going out to dinner. When I said “we” I thought my husband meant the two of us. After I booked a babysitter for tomorrow night, he said, “I thought we were bringing the kids with us.”

    I guess taking the kids to my Mother’s Day dinner would be ok. 😉

    Ohhhh we use that recipe all the time. Just don’t tell you guests there is a pat of butter in each burger! 😉

    Yum…these look good. We went gluten free this month, but we did not really enjoy the buns. I think I am going to try to make my own…just havent wanted to invest in all the new “flours” needed for gluten free baking!
