Yesterday, A Man and I went to have a look at how our wedding rings are coming along, and was that ever exciting! This meant that we were out of the house half of the afternoon, and didn’t want anything too labour-intensive for dinner. This wasn’t too time consuming (especially for me as I didn’t make it!) but absolutely delicious.
Earlier on, I had caught the scent of a BBQ blowing on the breeze, and realised just how long it’s been since I had a homemade burger. A Man was put in charge and the result was amazing. Honestly, I’m seriously considering having another one for breakfast. It was goooood.
I leave you with the recipe, and the wise words of Samuel L Jackson (aka Jules Winnfield).
A Man’s Tasty Burgers
Good quality beef mince
Fresh basil leaves
Half an onion
One fat clove of garlic
Salt and pepper
- Finely dice the onion and garlic. Place all of the ingredients in a bowl together.
- Mix everything together really well with your hands. Add more breadcrumbs or egg until the meat stays together well.
- Shape into burgers and leave to rest until ready to cook. Cook under a medium grill or on a BBQ for a few minutes on each side. You can leave it slightly pink in the middle if you like. I melted some mild cheddar on top of my burger just prior to serving.
- Serve with your preferred side dishes. We had toasted ciabatta bread, homemade baked chips, corn on the cob, tomato, lettuce and thinly sliced red onion. My favourite way to eat my burgers was with a scrape of mayonnaise and a dollop of sweet chilli sauce. Om nom nom nom nom nom nom.
