Mrs H, I really do enjoy cooking ,baking not so much. Hubby is gone so much that when he is home I like to make something different and special .
Tonight I am going to try a spinach salad ,dressed with a yogurt balsamic dressing and topped with fresh blueberries. Will let you know how it turns out as I am winging it. I will be serving it with grilled pork tenderloin.
Since you have young children at home you should try the cheese stuffed hamburgers, kids and adults love them. You just take your ground beef and season lightly, make two somewhat thin patties and stuff them with your favorite cheese be it cheddar, gruyere ,monterey jack etc. Then seal the two patties together around the edges shaping them so they are not too thick. Grill as normally done and top with an accompanying cheese to the one you have stuffed it with a few minutes before they are fully cooked . The cheese flavor is basically infused into the beef. Use condiments as you usually would and enjoy. It is delicious, and picky eaters usually love it.
We like to use blue cheese on the inside and then top with a medium gouda or swiss. Because of the unique flavors of the cheeses and the beef I like to just add sauteed mushrooms on mine, nothing else . Hubby adds the works ,lettuce, tomatoe. onion, pickle, ketchup ,mustard and relish .
Burgers sound awesome!!
I am just the opposite, I can bake, but am a simpleton when it comes to cooking.
