Isn’t she a beaut?

I’d be lying if I said I hand picked fresh, juicy meat and ground it with my beloved mixer. In reality, I found the perfect blend that was already seasoned AND already ground from Huntington Meats at the Farmer’s Market at 3rd and Fairfax. I also got the buttery (read: TASTY) buns from them too.

Technically, Nancy’s Backyard Burger has many more components than I had (meat, lettuce, tomato, onion and a smear of mayo) but when it comes to burgers, I like the meat to be the main event.

This blend is ready to grill. All I had to do was form the patties. Don’t forget the little dent in the center so it doesn’t puff up! From a pound of this blend, I got two servings.

Throw the bread on the grill just before the burgers finish cooking to get a nice char on the edges. Smear a bit of mayo on the buns, add green leaf lettuce, sliced red onions and a tomato and you’ve got yourself one of the better burgers you can make at home. Definitely beats forking over upwards of $10 for an Umami burger! (But I still love you, Umami. You’re just a rare fling for me now when I can afford you. In a completely non-hooker way.)
