Over the Top Burgers - Dee Dee's

Diane Atherton


For the 1st Sammie Challenge for 2012 we had 2 ingredients; Red Wine Vinegar and Red Bell Pepper to use in building our sammie. I wanted to use ingredients that I had on hand and this is what I came up with.

For those that love some extreme heat this ones for you and for those that don't like it hot, tone it down and it's for you too.

Hope you enjoy!

How to Make Over the Top Burgers - Dee Dee's


  1. While burgers are cooking, slice vegetables.
  2. Melt butter in saute' pan; add sliced onions, red bell pepper,and mushrooms. Season with salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder lightly; add red wine vinegar.
  3. SAUCE: Whisk all ingredients until creamy.
  4. Now that the burgers are sizzling and ready, the veggies are tender and the sauce is ready, let's get the burgers put together. Start by buttering the outsides of the bread. Lay these pieces buttered sides down in a preheated gridle. I use my cast iron grill. Slather the insides with the sauce.
  5. Next, place hambuger steak on bread, a layer of cheese, a layer of veggies and top with bread. Brown both sides and make sure cheese has melted, serve.

    I served this sandwich with Bonnie Dare's BEST OVEN BAKED FRIES AND POTATO WEDGES Very tasty and healthy side!
