Double Ground Beef Burger (DGB Burger)

DGB Burger Main Pic

I love Double Ground Beef Burgers. Some people don’t and they’re very particular about how they want their meat. Some people think they know but really don’t.  And because a hamburger is so commonly found on just about every street corner in America these days, everyone’s an expert. So If you know how you like your burger, by all means, have it your way.  But, If you want to try something fun and different then try it this way, because this burger is Plump, juicy and full of flavor.

I didn’t add “Exact” amounts of anything in this recipe.  Hamburgers are pretty self explanatory and I’m sure you know what you like on it and what you don’t so use this as a basic guide only.  I will mention that you should definitely salt and pepper both sides of your meat patties thoroughly and absolutely butter and toast your buns.  But, that’s all I’m going to say as a must do.

And if you’re interested in some sides, try these Onion Rings or Sweet Potato fries I’ve included at the end of this video or click the links here below.

The Best Seared Pepper Salad

This Dill Havarti Cheese with Seared Pepper Salad is a real refreshing way to shake up your everyday greens.  It’s got a wonderful blend of ingredients that make every bite explode with flavor.  This recipe, in particular, was voted as one of New York’s top twenty must have dishes a few years ago.  That alone sparked my interest in preparing this for myself and when I tried it, I knew I had to film it.

This Ricotta Salad with Fresh Veggies, Mint and Lime is another great way to enjoy a healthy lifestyle.  So if you’re looking to supplement a diet or just enjoy something tasty, this is the salad for you.  It’s got blanched Sugar Snap Peas, sliced Bell Peppers and Baby Kale Leaves that add plenty of vitamins and protein.  It’s also a nice way to kick off a fancy barbecue, if you’re into that sort of thing.  Personally I like to change things up and, hopefully, you do too.
