Cheeseburger in Paradise

A nice quick dinner is a good old fashioned cheeseburger. Here is how I do it using what I have in the house.

1 lb. chopped sirloin
1 egg
2 tablespoons breadcrumbs
5 (or more) dashes of Lea & Perrins
1/2 teaspoon Lawrys Seasoned Salt
1/2 cup minced onion
English Muffins
Fixins' (cheddar, ketchup, mustard, pickles, tomato, lettuce, etc.)

Combine all ingredients and form your patties. This should make about 4-5.
Heat a grill pan on high. When the pan is hot, add your burgers. Depending on how you like them, just a few minutes on each side. Top with some cheddar cheese (optional) before removing from heat to melt the cheese.

Place your burger an english muffin and top with the works! Serve with Old Bay French Fries.

Old Bay French Fries
4 Idaho Potatoes
2 tablespoons olive oil
Old Bay

Preheat oven to 425. Wash your potatoes and slice them into french fry sized pieces. I personally like them on the thin side. Place your fries on a baking sheet and coat with olive oil and salt. Bake at 425 for approximately 20 - 25 minutes. Keep your eye on these guys. The size of the pieces of potato will determine cooking time. Once crisp sprinkle generously with Old Bay.

Enjoy with a cold brew and you have yourself a cheeseburger in paradise.

  1. Omg it looks amazing

  2. Thanks Bonnie! You should show BISCo. blog readers how to do your fried chicken. Whatdya say?

  3. I have a better one for summer grlling and a healthier choice then fried chicken. It is grilled chicken with cucumber tomato feta cheese on a pita. I take chicken cutlets and marinade them in salt pepper,garlic and lemon juice let it sit for about 30 minutes in the mean time take plum tomatoes and dice them peel two cucumbers and dice them up I like them chunky and add feta cheese mix it well take your chicken and grill it up (it cooks quick since they are thin) place your chicken inside a pita topped with your veggies and enjoy all the yummy goodness. Good eating to you
