It’s summertime and that can only mean one thing…it’s grilling season.
But I do enjoy the prep work. No really, I do. Especially when it involves hamburgers.
So this time I got all daring and used an actual recipe. Normally I just wing it. Use a little salt, some ground black pepper, maybe a little Dale’s seasoning for flavor. Nothing fancy here. But this time I used an Ina Garten recipe…and it had an extra ingredient that I had never considered. It called for dijon mustard to be mixed into the ground beef. Okay, so some of you probably already do things like this, but come on, this is me we’re talking about. I’m not exactly civilized.
But I’m happy to report that going forward, I will be. Because that touch of dijon mustard was just the flavor booster my burger needed.
What’s your secret ingredient when making burgers? Do you use bread crumbs? Maybe a little ranch seasoning? What makes your burgers pop?
