I love fancy gourmet food, but I also love old fashion down home basics – including hamburgers!!
I made these hamburgers with just a little twist:
- extra lean beef
- Worcestershire sauce
- grill seasoning
To make them extra special, I added a good size chunk of Vermont sharp cheddar right in the middle of the patty.
**Another special touch was to put cranberry sauce on the bun instead of ketchup – its sweet and tangy flavor was a great switch from the norm!
On the side, I grilled up some leeks and onions.
(Can you tell which burgers are mine and which ones are my boyfriend’s??)
Finally, I finished off my plate with pickles and heirloom tomatoes. I ADORE heirloom tomatoes and will never go back to regular old tomatoes. Heirlooms are a bit more expense, but not too much – and the flavor is divine. They just have a more intense fresh tomato-y flavor in them… Try them; you’ll love them.
