Happy Saturday morning everyone! It’s a beautiful morning here in the mid-west; the sun is shining with perfect blue skies. I’m enjoying my wife’s company with my favorite cup of coffee, the paper and Lucy of course. Great way to start the day! Trying to pick out a great recipe to share with everyone. Something easy-breezy for a lazy Saturday afternoon, I’m thinking we’re going to do some Peppercorn Burgers. You’re looking at about 30 minute’s total time. Who wouldn’t like burgers with a little twist from the norm? So without further a due here we go, have a great day everyone!!!
Peppercorn Burgers with Remoulade Sauce
Ground Beef- 1 ½ pounds (feel free to substitute ground Turkey)
Worcestershire Sauce- 3 tablespoons
Dry Mustard- to coat
Salt- to taste
Peppercorns- to coat (crushed)
Swiss Cheese- 8 slices
Baguette- 1 (sliced on a diagonal about ½ inch thick; 8 slices)
Red Leaf Lettuce- 8 leafs
Tomato- 8 slices
Method to the Madness
1) Pre heat the grill. In a large mixing bowl add the beef, salt and Worcestershire. Form into four oblong patties to fit your Baguette slices.
2) Coat the patties with the dry mustard, and then the crushed Peppercorns. Grill to your desired temperature, top with the Swiss cheese. Don’t forget to toast the Baguette slices. I like to put the lettuce and tomato on the bottom of the burgers, so they won’t slide around as much.
Simple Remoulade Sauce
Mayo- 1 cup
Dijon mustard- 3 tablespoons
Green onions- 3 tablespoons (chopped)
White Wine vinegar- 2 tablespoons
Honey- 1 tablespoon
Salt & Pepper- to taste
1) Mix all ingredients together, and chill until dinner time.
2) After the cheese has melted on your burgers add the Remoulade.
