It’s 9:20, and I am, like, absolutely jonesing for a cheeseburger. I guess it’s an occupational hazard of food blogging, because when you think about recipes all the live long day, weird cravings can strike at any time. I might not be able to make it until the Holiday weekend before I cave in and serve burgers for dinner – maybe even tonight. Heck, maybe even for lunch.
Not to give you burgers on the brain too, but here are two great suggestions for grilling this weekend. You’re probably planning on having lobsters on Saturday, but don’t forget to think about dinners for Sunday and Monday, too. Here are two of my absolute favorite versions of the classic, all-American favorite. The potato recipe at the bottom is one of my go-to side dishes; I make them all summer long. They’re especially good with anything grilled, and would be terrific with everything from lobster to burgers this weekend.
With so many good cheeses on special this week, this is the perfect time to make these awesome little stuffed sliders. Blue cheese with caramelized onion are my personal favorite; if you’re partial to blue cheese too, try using the Carr Valley Glacier Penta Crème Cheese here (the Sendik’s Cheese of the Month). Experiment with combinations of your choosing, you really can’t mess them up. Look for Sendik’s Natural Black Angus Ground Chuck Value Packs, Sendik’s Brand Grated Parmesan (Belgioioso Brand Wedges are also on sale), and Wisconsin Colby Jack. Sendik’s Hot Dog and Brat Buns are also on sale (I like to slice these into thirds and use them for slider buns). If you want to make a full-sized version of these burgers, Sendik’s Hamburger Buns are also on sale.
Jalapeno Cheeseburgers with Spicy Ranch Sauce are my absolute favorite burger of all time — period, end of story. I’m not even going to try to sell them to you here, because there aren’t enough superlatives in my vocabulary to convey to you how much I love these burgers. Just trust me. If you make them, you won’t be sorry. Again, the Sendik’s Ground Chuck Value Packs are on sale as mentioned above, as are the Sendik’s Hamburger Buns. Hellmann’s Mayonnaise, Breakstone Sour Cream, and iceberg lettuce are also on special.
The most simple but delicious side dish to either of these burgers (lobster, too!) are these fabulous Redskins with Browned Butter. Oh my heavenly stars, you will not believe how delicious these potatoes are. If you make them once, they’re bound to become your go-to side dish all summer long.
Have a great Holiday weekend. See you back here next week! : )
