As Memorial Day Weekend approaches I want to wish everyone a safe and happy holiday. Since many of you will be gathering with family and friends for food and fun, I wanted to share one of my very favorite recipes: The SLATHER BURGER®. Slather Burger® begins with the your bun of choice. These days many bakeries are making breads without high fructose corn syrup. When this is an option this would certainly be my choice. Now comes your favorite meat patty. My personal favorite is grass fed beef or bison, but you can use turkey, venison, chicken or a vegetarian meatless patty. Next I add 1-2 slices of crispy applewood bacon. I’m sorry I don’t know what to recommend as a bacon substitute for vegetarians. Next I add a slice of smoked Gouda cheese. You can use other cheeses but the smoked Gouda pairs well with the other flavors. Next top with caramelized onions. I use a sweet variety onion. Slice thin and saute in a little olive oil until those sugars are released and that onion turns a nice golden brown. Finish with heaping tablespoons of Slatherin’ Sauce®.
I absolutely guarantee that your family and friends will love this delicious burger!!!!!
