So I am giving this cooking blog stuff a try. I’ve wanted to do this for a while now. I enjoy getting recipes from several blogs I follow, and with Pinterest, I’ve found so many more that I love. I have collected about a zillion cookbooks and tear out good recipes from magazines all the time. I figured a blog would be a great way to make sure I give all these a try. The plan is to just chronicle the successful recipes I try with my family and friends. We’ll see how it goes! I also have another site, Purple Paradise Creations, for my scrapbooking and card making projects. If you interested in that kind of stuff, check it out!
So here I go with my first recipe!!! I have trouble making decisions and deciding on what I wanted my first blog recipe to be was not easy for someone like me:)
But this Lure Burger is a winner sure to please anyone who tries it.
It has a great easy sauce and is topped with caramelized onions and bacon. Yum!
The burger is super easy to make. All you do is combine it with some mustard and seasonings. Super simple!
For the onions, just saute them in oil over medium heat for about 15 to 20 minutes until they get that nice caramel color.
While you wait, cook up the bacon in the oven on a parchment lined baking sheet at 400 degrees for about 15 to 20 minutes as well.
Add this onion-bacon mixture to the top of your grilled burgers. Add the special sauce on the toasted buns.
You can add dill pickles too…but my husband is not a fan of pickles on a burger, so I didn’t.
Give it a try. It is such a great burger!
