If Andrew made our weekly dinner menu, it would read burger, burger, pizza, nuggets, and burger. I like burgers, although I prefer a well-seasoned one over just one seasoned with salt & pepper, which is why, I suppose, that I would happily eat meatballs 2-3 times a week. In fact, when I do make hamburgers, I reserve enough mince for me to season to my preference, and form patties seasoned only with salt & pepper for Brett & Andrew.
However, on Tuesday, I chose to make 4 patties seasoned only with salt & pepper in order to make a Bobby Flay burger to submit to Reeni’s Burger Club over at her blog, Cinnamon Spice & Everything Nice, an incredible blog, btw. I chose to make Bobby’s Pressed Cuban-style burger because a Cuban sandwich is one of my favorite sandwiches. It is a delicious burger, truly, it is, I mean really, it’s a burger topped with ham, Swiss cheese, dill pickles, and an incredibly tasty mayonnaise on a pressed & toasted bun. What’s not to like? Nothing. However, the very ingredients that make it so delicious are the same ingredients that make it so incredibly rich, as in so rich that I could only eat a quarter of it. So, my rating is a 2 – I did like it, but I wouldn’t make it again.
Thanks to Reeni for the fun challenge, and I’m looking forward to see what she dreams up for us next!
