Greek Tzatziki Burgers
If you haven't noticed a pattern on this blog, we love a unique twist on a traditional dish. In summer, regular hamburgers can get a bit boring, so we decided to do a little Greek twist to ours today. Behold our Greek Tzatziki Burgers. 

These ooey gooey burgers are extremely flavorful. They have a wonderful crunch from the veggies, a bite from the tzatziki sauce, and then you finish it off with a supple 1/2 pound of flavorful beef. They are wonderful. 

Burger Ingredients: 
1/2 pound of 80% lean ground beef per person
1 inch green onion stem per person, chopped, 
1/2 tsp fresh dill per person, chopped
1/2 pita per person
1 romaine lettuce leaf per person
5 slices of cucumber per person 

Tzatziki Ingredients:

Mix your ground beef with your chopped scallions, dill, lavender salt & pepper. Shape into parties that are in triangle shapes or that will match the shape of your pitas. Grill until each patty has a nice crust on the outside. Fill your pita with one patty each, lettuce, cucumber, and then top with your fresh tzatziki sauce. 

We hope you enjoy another wonderful flavorful easy weeknight meal. 
Bon Appetite!

BBQ Whiskey Burgers
Tonight we made some tangy messy barbecue whiskey burgers for dinner. They smelled heavenly as they were marinating in the sauce, and they certainly lived up to my expectations once I was able to bite into these juicy babies. The burgers have a sweet tang from the barbecue sauce, and its kicked up a notch by the whiskey glaze. You will love this non-traditional take on a traditional week night burger. 

4 hamburger buns
2 tablespoons butter
16 ounces ground beef
lavender salt, pepper
1/2 onion, diced
1/4 cup whiskey
1/2 cup bbq sauce

First, divide your meat into 4 round patties. Sprinkle each side of each patty with lavender salt and pepper. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter into a pan. Add your patties and brown/char on each side (about 5-6 minutes per side, until the middle is just barely pink). Remove the patties from the pan and set aside. To the remaining grease and your onion and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Then add your whiskey to deglaze the pan. Let that boil for a couple minutes. Then add your barbecue sauce and stir until everything is nice and bubbly. Add your patties back into the mix and heat/cover in sauce until everything reduces down. Its a big delicious looking mess. 

Add the burgers to your buns with extra sauce and onions to your liking. 

 This was such a wonderful tangy sweet burger. It will definitely make it into your regular rotation.
