What we already had: (in pantry and from a quick one day shop)
eggs (from Nolan and Nicole's chickens!)
A quick and easy dinner #1: Burgers on the grill.
Make a gourmet fun spread! This one may sound funny to you but it's our "go-to." Whip up a batch of homemade hummus and combine it with a smashed avocado and some finely chopped pineapple. Best spread ever for sandwiches of any kind!
Slice up a whole or half an onion, depending on size, to go on the grill with the ground beef and buns. (very lightly butter or mayonnaise the insides of the buns)
Prepare your topping goodies! Slice up cheese (and make sure to add them to the grill plate... that will go right on top of the burger patties while they're on the grill to get nice and melty), tomatoes, and chop some lettuce.
Drizzle some olive oil on your grill plate and start the onions!
Make your ground beef patties and pop them on the grill. We use only black pepper and seasoned salt. Nothin' else! When they're just about done, add the cheese on top and let it get melty.
Time for assembly! Avocado hummus spread on bottom, then the patty, onions, ketchup, mustard, whatever, tomato, lettuce and more avocado spread on top.
And there you have it. A fantastic, juicy, INEXPENSIVE HOMEMADE BURGER. So much better than eating out! (in my opinion) ;)
That's what we made. What's next...?
