Orda Up

A while back I was at the dollar store and I saw food baskets (the kind you see at a lot of burger joints) and I thought what a fun way to do a burger night.  But, I wasn’t completely convinced about needing the baskets.  As I kept browsing, I came across mini ketchup and Grey Poupon glass bottles (think fancy room service!) and I knew that I had to get them.  So, back to the baskets I went!  Luckily, I was at the dollar store, so I still didn’t spend too much!  The ketchup was 3 for $1 and the Grey Poupon were 8 for $1 🙂  They were basically paying me to take them!  So, burgers and fries were on the menu along with a summer peach cake.  Delish!  It made me feel like I was flipping burgers short order and was compelled to say “orda up” repeatedly!

 

For the burgers, plan on about 1/4 – 1/3 pound of ground beef per person.  Gently beat an egg in a large mixing bowl and add the ground beef.  Mix in about 1/2 or 1 TBS Worcestershire sauce, about 1 tsp onion powder, 1 tsp of Trader Joe’s 21 and seasoning salute.     Blend well, but don’t over mix (it can make the burgers tough).  Form into patties that are pretty flat, but don’t smash too much.  Right before the burgers go on the grill, sprinkle with some salt (I used Tastefully Simple’s seasoning salt).  If you salt the burgers too early or mix it in, it will draw a lot of moisture out of the meat leaving you with dry burgers.

Place the burgers on the grill until your desired done-ness is reached.  Serve with your favorite cheese and condiments!
