Recipe: Comfort Food Edition

When I think of comfort food, the first thing that comes to mind is backyard grilling (yes, I made my husband go outside to grill in the middle of winter). I’ve been craving a homemade burger since the summer, so I went to our local country store today to get fresh ground hamburger meat along with some other goodies. I have tried at least 10 different recipes on my mission to make the best hamburger and I finally concocted a recipe that would blow Bubba’s Burgers out of the water. This asparagus recipe is bomb, too. Get all the details below!

Big V’s Burgers:

Ingredients

  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp teriyaki sauce
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp stone- ground mustard or Dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp of onion flakes (much easier than dicing or chopping a regular onion)
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 lb lean ground beef

Directions: Oil and heat grill to medium. Add top 7 ingredients together, mix well. Add beef. Mix all ingredients together with fork or hands (hands are more fun). Cook for about 5-7 minutes per side or until no longer pink. Place burger on a toasted wheat bun. Enjoy!

Parmesan Crusted Asparagus:

Ingredients:

  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup parmesan
  • salt & pepper to taste

Directions: Mix all ingredients in a gallon size zip lock bag. Toss asparagus in bag to coat with mixture. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 min or wrap in tinfoil and cook on grill with burgers. Enjoy!
