Day 144 – Subjective Burger

May 24, 2009

I went and shot a round of trap and a round of skeet this morning. The people at the Gun & Reel club on Middle Ridge Road are very nice and super friendly! I like shooting there.

After I got home, I decided to make myself lunch (my parents are on a cruise, so I am on my own for the weekend). I looked through the fridge, and decided to make a burger.

I dubbed it “The Subjective Burger,” because there were no objective measurements involved in making it. I went on what I thought tasted good, how much spice looked like enough, and how long it cooked until it looked done.

Instructions:

Mix enough ground beef for a large burger with shredded cheese, black pepper, crushed red pepper, garlic powder, and Famous Dave’s Devil’s Spit bbq sauce. After it is well mixed, form it into whatever shape burger you want. Then, throw it on a hot grill. While it is cooking, grill some bacon and thick slices of bread (lightly butter the bread first). The bacon burns easily and quickly, so watch it closely. Cook the burger to your specifications (in my case, medium), making sure to put a mound of shredded cheese on top before you take it off. Yes, the cheese melts and drips all over the grill, but the taste is worth the cleanup afterwards. (If you don’t think so, add less cheese. Remember, this is the subjective burger!)

I do not care for vegetables on my burgers, so I ate just the burger with the bacon and ketchup on the grilled bread. I also ate Sunchips and pickles on the side, with lemonade to drink.

What a tasty lunch! If you want to try this, let me know how it turns out. Feel free to substitute or add anything you want. My subjective preferences are not your subjective preferences, so do not feel bound to what I mixed together.
