Our recipe for this week was "Cafe Salle Pleyel" hamburgers.
Since Tricia is traveling, I borrowed some of her food tasters
and we all enjoyed a lovely dinner.
This was a really good hamburger. The filling mix consisted
of sundried tomatoes, capers, cornichons and herbs - which
gave it a wonderful flavor. I made the onion marmalade
and used sandwich slices of dill pickle cut into strips.
My only complaint was that it was too much meat
for each hamburger. It looked more like a mini meatloaf.
Hubby and I only ate half of the burger,
but they were delicious.
My method of cooking was pan frying, but I know
this would be great on a grill too.
I served the Barefoot Contessa's "Sagaponack Corn Pudding"
and a mixed salad with this recipe.

I missed out on this one but my guys enjoyed it - big time.
I was in Buckhead/Atlanta for the week and enjoyed
many lovely restaurants. Not surprising, my favorite
ended up being the "Varsity" near Georgia Tech.
It is the worlds' largest drive-in restaurant and
showcases hotdogs, burgers, fries, chiili and similar goodies.
One of their claims to fame is the standard "what'll ya have"
that the cashiers holler out to encourage people to
step up and order. It is hilarious - you hear a continual
chant of this from behind the counter.
They had arguably the best onion rings I have ever tasted
(and I have tasted a lot.....)and their "naked dog" and
"slaw dogs" were amazing. That said, I still wish I was
home to taste the "Dorie Burgers"........
