The Hamburger Queen…

Now that Megan has *perfected* the art of building a charcoal grill fire, she is attempting to pass along her vast knowledge to her younger sister while at the same time learning to properly patty and cook the cheeseburgers that they both love to eat.

Can you tell that her daddy is an engineer?

The double cuteness does a very nice job of hiding the oneryness.

Interestingly, Megan found that making hamburger patties was not quite as easy as she thought it would be… Packing the hamburger together into a strong patty ensures easier and more even cooking on the grill!

Once the fire was ready, the *expertly made* burger patties went on the grill (unfortunately the Daddy burger was not quite packed well enough and split into three pieces during this process…).

She mostly managed to get it put back together...

Flipping the burgers also took more savvy than she originally thought…But after a few tries she was successful! And, soon it was time to add the cheese and then serve.

And the mandatory ketchup smiley face :)

With the mandatory ketchup smiley face 🙂

There were generally smiles all around during dinner, so an unanimous vote determined that (despite the challenges) our Cowgirl/Chef was a masterful burger maker in training…

The fresh strawberries and whipped cream added to the smiles...

The fresh strawberries and whipped cream was a tasteful way to end dinner!

What is your favorite type of burger?  Megan is looking for ideas for her next Hamburger Queen dinner!

    Onion burger. Lipton Onion soup mix mixed dry into the meat prior to making a patty.

  2. Guacamole, sautéed onions, and bacon 🙂
    Or peanut butter and bacon… sounds gorse, but is so good 😉
    I also like to add well chopped onions and garlic into the burger meat 🙂

    • Perhaps the peanut butter would help Megan to get the burgers to pack together better! Her daddy would probably prefer to not have his burger split in three pieces…:)

      The chopped onions and garlic sounds awesome!

    An inside-out burger with a filling of real pimento cheese (made with sharp cheddar and jalapeño peppers) on a whole wheat bun. So good!

    • Hi Sue Fan. That sounds awesome! We have never made inside-out burgers before so we will have to try that. The girls will have fun sticking cheese inside of the burgers and then “hiding” it with more meat 🙂

      I hope that all is well in Florida. My folks got to Wyoming just fine and are having fun fishing the trout streams.

      Love,
      Anne
