2013_02_23aWe went to visit friends over the weekend, and after a loooong drive and some relaxing rush hour traffic-jam traffic, we had this wonderful meal upon our arrival.

My friend’s husband is a bit of a burger connoisseur. Always on the quest for the perfect burger. The right meat, the right seasonings, the right bun, etc. So when I heard he was making us burgers, I knew we were in for a treat, and boy were we!

These burgers were definitely one of the best I’ve ever hand. He grinds his own meat, and insists on grinding just before grilling. His current philosophy is the simpler the better. So it’s just meat, onion, and cheese. But they did make a homemade thousand island type dressing that we loved too. We each had two! And plenty of homemade fries to go with too. So good!

RECIPES:

Salt and pepper
