"Eggers Style" Burgers
The grilling season is here! I never order a burger at a restaurant, for a few reasons, but I love a home made burger on the grill.
You're probably wondering... what's Eggers Style? Well, meet the Eggers...
Mrs. (the red-haired one) and Child #1
I'm so sorry, I don't have a picture of Child #2.
These are our "holiday friends". We don't see each other a lot throughout the year, but we've sort of fell in to this pattern where we see each other every Christmas Eve, July 4th, and this year we added Easter. :-) While searching for photos to introduce you to them I realized, I don't have very many photos of this family that we love.
Anyway, this year on Easter, the Eggers invited us over for a "non-traditional" Easter dinner. Their words, not mine. Actually they wanted to get together not on a holiday, but Easter was right around the corner, so we sort of invited ourselves for that day. It seemed appropriate.
For dinner, we had the option of a plain hamburger or an Eggers Style hamburger. And because they were so good, I decided the next time I made burgers it would be this way.
2 lbs Ground Beef
1 1/2 cups spinach
1 cup of parmesan cheese, freshly grated
4-6 cloves crushed garlic
You can add or subtract any of the flavorings. I didn't really get a measured recipe from the Mrs., so I just sort of eyeballed it, and this is what I think my measurements were. We like garlic, and I could taste it.
Mix all the ingredients together and form hamburger patties. I made 8 burgers from 2 lbs of beef.
Grill them up to perfection and serve with your favorite toppings!
What's YOUR favorite way to eat a burger? I'd love to hear from you!
