Dan's Ground Chuck Cheeseburger Dinner

Rose Mary Mogan


On the second day I was released from the hospital, my husband made dinner as only he was capable of.

I sat at the counter as he gathered the spices for me to season the meat, while he prepped the skillet.

I seasoned & shaped the burgers & he added them to the skillet along with the onions. He toasted the buns & microwaved the frozen peas. He then sliced the tomatoes, although not perfect as I would have done, but I knew they were sliced with lots of love & care & that's all that really mattered.
Buns toasted & made with love nothing could be more gratifying or satisfying. Thanks Dan

Directions Step-By-Step

Although I didn't get pictures of the green peas, both the grilled onions and peas had great flavor. I am sure it is because my husband did the best he could to make a healthy meal for me. I really appreciated that. Most of the spices used for the burgers.
Season ground beef with spices and shape into desired number of burgers. I made four.
Slice onions into desired thickness.
Lightly spray skillet with cooking spray and turn heat to medium high. Add the burgers. Cook until patties begin to brown about 5 or so minutes per side or as desired. Then flip to other side.
Add sliced onions to skillet with burgers. Slice tomatoes while burgers cook, my husband did this, then toast the buns if desired. I only had 1/2 of a bun.
When burgers are just about done add sliced cheese to each burger as desired.
Cook peas in microwave or on stove top as per directions on package. Season with desired spices.
Add cooked burgers to plate along with side items and enjoy. That's my plate with the half bun, peas were still in microwave. It was a great dinner because my husband made it with lots of love just for me. ANY MEAL MADE WITH LOVE TASTE BETTER.
