I was unloading groceries from Costco the other day and my sister happened to stop by. She saw me grab these Kirkland 1/4 pound ground beef patties out of my Suburban, and she asked if they were any good.
And I told her - Yes, these are amazing! These are what sustains our family right now.
We call them skillet burgers because we often cook them on a skillet (or griddle). But lately the weather has been so gorgeous we have been cooking them on the Green Egg (which is exactly what the Green Egg is intended for, a warehouse store pre-pattied burgers).
At least once a weekend, we eat these burgers. They are something I don't really have to think about. Also, they are DELICIOUS and a meal my husband can cook from start to finish.
(My mom took Laurie to Wal-mart and let her pick out a nightgown. )
We have been dining al fresco as much as we can, lately and it has been glorious. I adore spring!
There is only a short window of time when the weather is nice and the mosquitoes are still in hiding.
Truly, skillet burgers are a delicacy, so satisfying and festive! This meal helps us feel like we are getting a treat, but keeps us eating at home. We fancy them up with slices of tomato in summer and pickles, lettuce, and cooked onion in the other seasons.
A lot of times I will do roasted sweet potato fries or another roasted vegetable, but when I'm feeling really desperate (like this past weekend), I'm not too sophisticated for frozen French fries.
Do you have a meal like this? One that's easy, comforting, and will keep you from being tempted to get takeout?
