Froo-Froo Burger

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons crushed red pepper
  • 1 teaspoons of Johnny’s seasoning salt
  • 2 teaspoons of Tony¬†Chachere’s Cajun seasoning
  • 1 Tablespoon of Worcestershire¬†sauce
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/4 cup of Panko breadcrumbs
  • 4 fresh mozzarella cheese balls
  • 4 onion rolls, lightly toasted
  • Sun-dried Tomato & Pesto Mayo (*recipe below)
Mix the ground beef with all the seasonings in a bowl. Shape into patties. Gently make a hole in the center and place cheese ball. Making sure to cover, so it doesn’t ooze out. ¬†Shape into 4 patties. Heat a cast iron skillet until very hot. Spray skillet with olive oil. Place patties into skillet.¬†Cook the burgers, turning occasionally, to desired temperature, approximately 15 minutes. ¬†Serve on toasted onion buns, slathered with Pesto and Sun-dried Tomato Mayo. (*Consider serving with roasted asparagus. Recipe below.)
Pesto and Sun-dried Tomato Mayo
  • 1/2 cup of mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons of pesto, homemade or jarred
  • 1 tablespoon of sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
Stir ingredients together and allow to sit for a few minutes for flavors to meld. (*This is really good with French fries, too.)
Roasted Asparagus
  • 1 bunch of asparagus, prepared
  • 2 tablespoons of Montreal steak seasoning
  • Olive oil (*I have a mister that I fill with olive oil.)
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Prepare asparagus by breaking of the ends of the asparagus stalks. They should easily and naturally break off at the appropriate point. Place asparagus on grill pan. Mist/spray the asparagus with olive oil. Sprinkle with steak seasonings. Roast for 15 minutes, or until tender.
