Throwback Thursday - Pub Burger

Yum
Warmer temperatures are on the way!
Heading up to the 50s this weekend.  I don't know about you, but that calls for short sleeves and sitting outside to soak in some rays.  Maybe break out the flip flops?  To enjoy all the weekend has to offer, our plan is to grill out!  Sure, we grill in the winter, but it is a lot more fun when you don't have to shovel your way to get to the grilling apparatus.  So, for Throwback Thursday, I am sharing my favorite grilled burger, The Pub Burger!


Caramelized onions and a smoky sauce sit on top of the perfectly seasoned, grilled burger.
The flavor is amazing!


Take off that coat and grab some charcoals because nothing beats grilling in February!
Take that winter! 


Ingredients:
1 1/2 lbs ground meat
sea salt
pepper
1 Vidalya onion
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp unsalted butter
2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup mayo
1/4 cup barbecue sauce
dash of liquid smoke
mini kaiser buns, lettuce and tomato
Directions:
Shape ground meat in patties.  Sprinkle each with sea salt and pepper.  Heat up grill.  While grill is heating, make the Vidalya onions.  Slice the onion into rings.  In a large saucepan, heat unsalted butter and olive oil.  When hot, add the sliced onions and balsamic vinegar.  Heat on high for 2 minutes.  Add 1/2 tsp salt and turn heat to low.  Cook down for 7-8 minutes.  When coals are ready, add the hamburger patties.  Grill until desired doneness.  For sauce, mix together mayo, barbecue sauce and liquid smoke.  Assemble burgers using mini kaiser buns, seasoned/cooked burgers, lettuce, tomato, onions and sauce.


I could just sink my teeth into that baby right now!
Get ready Midwest...there's a heat wave a-coming so let's get out there and grill!

Celebrate the little things that make life sweet,
Christine

There's also a party going on!  Join in the fun!
