Burgers, buns and more... Homemade heaven!
With my grass-fed beef "value pack" (Dixon Family Meats), I received two packages of 5 oz. hamburger patties. We season with just salt, pepper, garlic, onion and maybe a sprinkle of Emeril's essence. Yum!
A perfect accompaniment is homemade Ciabatta. This combo is so good that we had it Friday AND Sunday! The buns are SO easy to do – I keep a basic boule (dough) in the refrigerator and we have buns baked and ready in 40 minutes. Come on back...I'll post on the Artisan Bread boule this week.
The tomatoes in the photo were flavorful, fresh from Mike O.'s garden. In addition to the onion, squash and zucchini pictured with the burger, I found some lovely little peaches at the farmers market this week that went into a simple peach-blackberry cobbler (oats, whole wheat flour, cinnamon, agave and a touch of brown sugar). We enjoyed that this morning with our coffee on the patio...a lovely idea that my husband had. Summer goodness!
