As Seen on Fox 11: 4th of July Burgers

Mmmm. burgers.

We know a lot of you will be mastering your grilling skills in the next few days. Here are some tasty variations from Chef Colin on getting a little more flare into your fare:

  1. Sweet-N-Spicy consists of adding pickled Serrano peppers with a yummy apricot chutney. You can buy apricot chutney at the store as well.
  2. Add arugula and cabbage salad that sits on the burger with red pepper vinaigrette.
  3. Use bacon jam with caramelized onions and bacon, with a Humboldt Fog bleu cheese. You can grill the bacon right next to the burger to save time.
  4. Quesadilla burger — add pico de gallo, cheese, avocado and wrap it with tortilla which has a bit less carbs. Plus it’s still a cheeseburger!
  5. Mediterranean burger – This one is “Animal style” (e.g. no bun) with some lettuce, hummus, roasted pepper, avocado and artichokes

Buy the best ground chuck or sirloin you can get. We use 85% lean beef /15% fat. Low fat it important so the burger doesn’t get dry.
