Ground beef can be transformed into a variety of dishes and is relatively economical, particularly if purchased in bulk, divided and frozen.

I'm always searching for ways to stretch the grocery budget and ground beef is a staple in my home.

Meatloaves? Casseroles? Soups? What are YOUR favorite recipes which include ground beef?

Out-of-the-Box Recipe

I've been working on a burger recipe for the World Food Championships and just finished and posted. It's a totally out-of-the box incorporating Korean flavors with homemade quick Kim0Chi and a but that's a traditional Korean Street Food. There's a lot to it, but it will be worth the effort. It's got a good kick but you'll enjoy it. Give it a pinch and a try. Thanks,

Happy Holidays and a Cookbook Idea

Good afternoon all:

I'm thinking about putting together a cookbook next year highlighting, of course, burgers but also everyone's favorite dishes to go along with burgers, including desserts and beverages. I know right now we're all deep into the holidays but, after life settles down after the holidays, please send me links to those yummy burgers, sides, desserts and beverages that you would like to share with the world and I'll start putting it together. Other ground beef dishes (meatloaf, chili, etc.) would be good too. Also, your favorite tips for preparing and cooking your burgers would be great to add. In advance, thanks for your contributions. And please share this with others who may want to contribute to this. The more the merrier.

And lastly, but most importantly, I want to wish everyone a very happy, joyous and peaceful holiday season. Whether it Hanukah, Christmas, Kwanza or other holiday that you celebrate, and of course New Years, may it be a great one for us all. The world's crazy these days but we have to do our part to keep ourselves and love ones safe and sane. Of course, some good food can help that.

Be well and peace for us all.

Breakfast Patty Melt

I'm off to the World Food Championships this week and this is one of the burgers I'll be making. It my Top of the Morning Sunrise Melt taking the classic patty melt and turning it into a tasty breakfast sandwich for everyone. The ketchup is spicy but that can be toned down for the kids or those who don't care for lots of spice. Enjoy.

To Grill or Not to Grill.....

...is that a question? For many hamburger lovers, there is no question, it's on the grill, always. But, for some, there are other methods. What's yours?

Most of the time, the BBQ is the place for my beef and lamb burgers. But for some of the meats I've used, the BBQ grill won't work. Especially when I make salmon burgers or turkey burgers. Then it's on a grill pan or a cast iron pan, usually on the stove top. On the BBQ grill they have fallen through. For some though, the burger on a flat top in a diner is best. There, the burger cooks in it's own fat as it renders out of the meat putting a great crust on the burger. A cast iron pan will do the same and adds flavor to the burger.

Others prefer under the broiler, some, a smoker and some steamed. Not my choice, but there is a place in the east, I believe, where steamed burgers are a favorite.

We all have our own way of preparing our burgers, and for each person, that's the best way to go. Lets hear from you how you like to prepare you burgers and why.

I hope you're enjoying your weekend and putting those BBQ's to work. Have a great week.
