Just the Burger

Hamburgers are one of the most popular sandwiches there is.  My husband has burger making down to a fine science with his famous homemade burger patties, aka burger with attitude.  They are some of the best burgers I've ever tasted.    They are made with hormone, anti-biotic free lean ground beef that is part of our bulk beef purchase each year from a famer/friend.

Burgers do not always need to be served on a bun.  What is nice though is burgers patties tend to be portion controlled.  We grilled burgers a few nights ago then the following night used the leftovers for a easy to put together dinner.  I served the burger patties sans buns topped with Sweet Baby Ray's barbeque sauce and sautéed mushrooms along with steamed spinach, steamed corn on the cob and baked potatoes. 

Steaming the vegetables keeps the nutrients where they should be so it is one of my favourite ways to prepare vegetables.  This was the first run of local sweet corn.  It was tender and juicy.  Steaming the corn results in more flavour as well.
