Special Special Burgers


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
  • dill

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.
