John's "World Famous" Burgers

So maybe they’re not “world famous” but they sure were a big hit at our house this past weekend. We don’t eat burgers often so when we do we try to come up with something just a little different. Click here and here to see two of our past burger ideas.

Normally we’d come up with these recipes together but this one my husband came up with on his own. He’s very proud of it, which he should be, because it was delicious. He made fresh grass fed beef patties and grilled them on our outdoor grill. Each burger was topped with melted cheddar cheese and fresh baby spinach. There were also some crimini mushrooms that had been sautéed in equal parts butter and oil and oven roasted tomatoes slightly sweetened with sugar. All of this delicious goodness was piled onto a toasted focaccia roll spread with homemade garlic mayo.


It was seriously one of the best burgers I’ve ever had…and I’m not just saying that because he's my husband. (although I hope it wins me some brownie points) If you’re ever in the market for a burger that’s just a little different you should give John’s “world famous” burger a try. And who knows someday they might really be “world famous”

  4. I love using spinach or other greens like arugula on my burgers as well. We will forget the fact that it is really good for us too and just concetrate on the wonderful flavours!!
