Burger Time!

As part of my depression kit last week, I picked up a copy of the latest Food Network Magazine. Unlike the last issue, which I thought was ho-hum, this issue was really, really good! I particularly loved the Bobby Flay burger section. It inspired me to make some burgers - and I found out that his new cookbook, Burgers, Fries, & Shakes, is a Random House publication, and since I review books for Random House, I requested a review copy of it and it's on its way! Woo-hoo!

Anyway, I liked the looks of a recipe for avocado relish in the article, and I made it to go on my burgers last night. It was excellent stuff!

Avocado Relish (by Bobby Flay)

2 avocados
1/2 small onion, diced
1 minced jalapeno
juice of 1 lime
3 tbsp chopped cilantro
salt & pepper

Mix everything together.

I made half the recipe and omitted the jalapeno because I don't like them.

I made the burger with bison meat and seasoned it only with salt & pepper - as Bobby Flay apparently does! I topped it with red pepper, spring mix, and some of the Italian flavoured Monterey Jack cheese I got at the Village Cheese Co. I served my burger with some roasted potatoes, and I have enough left over for a couple of nights.

There's nothing better than a homemade burger, and yours looks great! The potatoes go along with it perfectly.

I could easily stay away from that burger (not too much into red meat lately) but my-oh-my those potatoes look excellent and I'd love to dip them in tht avocado sauce. Yum.

See and I found this issue more ho hum than the last one. Although your burger picture is making me seriously re-think my pork chops for supper.

Cathy: You thought this issue is ho-hum, eh? Interesting. Perhaps it's just my mood...

The avocados sold me on this, my variation will come tomorrow.
