So, as I was sitting at work today thinking about what I was going to make Scott and I dinner, I realized that I was having a serious craving for a good burger and fries. As I sat there racking my brain on “if that was good enough” I suddenly realized that in all my years of making my infamous hamburgers I have never made a Swiss Burger!! As the thought crossed my mind I realized that Mushroom, Onion and Swiss Burgers for dinner would be perfect.
I am fairly confident that the entire meal turned out amazing as Scott cleaned his plate, even licking his fingers clean!
I will say, one of the most difficult things about “blogging” about food you have made for years the way your Mom taught you, and how her Mom taught her is actually having to measure your ingredients while trying to ensure you make everything the same way you always have!
Sauteed Mushrooms & Onions
8 Ounces of Mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
2 Medium Yellow Onions, Sliced
2 Tablespoons Butter
5 Teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
Add everything into a medium sized saute pan and turn the heat onto Medium. Saute the onions and the mushrooms stirring occasionally while you prep and cook the hamburgers.
2 Pounds of Ground Beef
1 Large Egg
4 Teaspoons of Worcestershire Sauce
4 Teaspoons of Minced Onions
1/4 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
1/4 Teaspoon Lemon Pepper Seasoning
Montreal Steak Seasoning
4 Slices Swiss Cheese
Add the ground beef, egg, Worcestershire sauce, minced onions, garlic powder and lemon pepper seasoning into a bowl. Mix all the ingredients together until well combine; however, do not over mix the meat. Form the mixture into four 1/2 pound patties, or smaller burger patties if you so desire.
Once the burgers are on the grill sprinkle the top of the burgers lightly with the season salt and the Montreal steak seasoning. For well done patties cook the patties for 7 minutes, turn once and sprinkling the second side of the patty lightly with the season salt and the Montreal steak seasoning. Cook patties an additional 5 minutes and add a slice of Swiss cheese to the top of each patty. Turn off the grill and allow patties to remain in the closed grill for 2 minutes.
Spicy Cajun Sweet Potato Fries
6 Sweet Potatoes
12 Tablespoons Olive Oil
4 Teaspoons Cajun Seasoning
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Peel the sweet potatoes and cut them into 1/4″ thick french fries. On a baking sheet spread out the sweet potato fries and cover them with the olive oil and Cajun seasoning. Toss fries to coat evenly. Spread the fries out in an even layer on the baking sheet and bake for 35-45 minutes.
