Thai Chicken Burgers

These Thai Chicken Burgers have a secret that keeps them moist! Yeah, that's a teaser - click to see the whole recipe.

I’m sitting in what seems to be the red meat capital of the world, folks. Right smack dab in the Midwest. At my folk’s in a small town outside of Sioux Falls. (We even went to see bull riding last winter!) So it might be considered a bit of a stretch to serve my fave octogenarians a chicken burger. And a chicken burger with Thai flavors, no less!

Essential Sloppy Joes

Sloppy Joes. I don’t know if I ever used a recipe for the basic Sloppy Joe. They always seemed to come from standing in front of the fridge and rummaging through the cupboards as the clock struck five and I was wondering what to make for dinner!

Salmon Burgers

If you live in the Midwest, you’re probably familiar with Hy-Vee grocery stores. They have a marvelous meat counter with all kinds of grab & cook options. One of those is Salmon Burgers. The only problem? The price.

Sparrow Tavern’s Veggie Burger . $3.75 for 8

These Veggie Burgers are amazing!! A bit of work but totally worth it!

Diners, Drive Ins & Dives is on Netflix this season and this episode features the Sparrow Tavern in Astoria, New York – a run down rock & roll type bar with gourmet style. One of their star items was the Sparrow Veggie Burger and even the carnivores were going on about it. After I made them, I can see why – they’re flippin’ AWESOME! A bit of work, but the best Veggie Burger I’ve ever had!

When I told my lil’ sis about how good these Bomb Oven Roasted Burgers are, she asked, “What magic is this?” I was skeptical at first, too, when my son-in-law made them for us. I’m looking over his shoulder, right? You’re Baking Hamburgers? You mean broiling? No. Baking? Hmmm.
