National Hamburger Month

"I'd gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today." ~ Wimpy
I recently heard on a radio station that May 28th is National Hamburger day. I thought it would be a good time to share a recipe and make burgers. So, I started researching it and the ONLY consensus I can find is that May is National Hamburger MONTH. I found some sites listed National Hamburger day as May 28th, July 28th and even December 21st. I did find a site that seems to have a very comprehensive list of holidays and seems like a great reference. Another fun site is the History of the Hamburger~ anything you ever wanted to know about burgers, but were afraid to ask. All this aside, here is my recipe for our favorite burgers.

GARLIC & HERB BURGERS
1 pound ground round
1 JUMBO egg
1 stale & dried slice of San Francisco Sourdough Bread, crumbed
1 package Good Seasons Garlic and Herb dressing mix
  • Mix all the ingredients together with your hands until well blended.
  • Form patties.
  • Chill for 24 hours before preparing.
  • Grill.
  • Add sharp cheddar cheese, mayo, sweet and sweet red red onion relish, a tomato slice and red onion slice.
  • Enjoy.

SWEET RED, RED ONION HAMBURGER RELISH
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 tablespoons kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1 large red onions, chopped small
2 large sweet pickles, chopped small
  • Combine the sugar, salt, cloves and vinegar in a small saucepan and bring to a boil stirring constantly until sugar dissolves.
  • Add onion and pickles and blend well.
  • Reduce heat and and cook a few minutes more until onion is translucent and tender.
  • Remove from heat and cool.
  • Keep chilled in refrigerator for up to a week.

Garlic Herb burgers sounds great. I'll bet it's every bit as good as peanut butter burgers.
