The sunny days are slipping away. I have a strange desire to sing the Sesame Street song now. But given my latitude, PNW, it’s already getting cold. So I present my tribute to the great American summer burger, no bun because who needs that many carbs?
Great American Summer Burger
Thinly slice a sweet onion and thinly slice some mushrooms. Saute over low in a skillet. How much you use it up to you. I like a lot of onions and mushrooms on my burger, the hubs, not so much.
While that’s sauting down, grill your patty. I like mine medium rare and done in beef. But char that puppy if it makes you happy. Veggie burger, Chicken burger, turkey burger, elk burgers…it all tastes good.
Add cheese in the last minute or two of grilling. I like a nice sharp white cheese. A gruyere swiss combo but havarti works too. The hubs likes cheddar on this – purist.
In the mean time, whip up the sauce. Mayo, spicy brown mustard, paprika, and a dill pickle chopped fine. How much you may be asking. Look I never measure, I’ll guess at it but use the force already. 1/3 c mayo, 3 tbsp mustard, 1 tbsp paprika, 1 small pickle.
Assemble patty, onions and mushrooms, avocado, and sauce. You can add tomatoes and lettuce if you have it, I was out the last time I made this meal.
