I like to watch food television once in a while. Actually I would probably watch it a lot more often, but Todd gets rather annoyed with it, and so . . . I usually only indulge when he's not home. I'd like to say on record though, that he doesn't mind reaping the benefits "eating-wise" from my obsession with cooking and recipes!!
One of the programs I like to watch it Diner's Drive In's and Dive's with that guy who has that freaky died hair. He goes to some really tasty looking spots and eats some really fabulous food! I was watching it a while back and I noted these really tasty looking burgers he was trying at this one place and I thought they looked like something which we would enjoy at home.
They didn't look that hard to make either, and I have to say I was greatly intrigued with the idea of mashing the onions into the burger and then steaming the buns over the onions . . . what a great way to get the onion flavour right into the meat and the buns!
SO anyways, it was so long ago that I can't remember the restaurant he was at, and I can only tell you what I did myself that worked. In any case, these were some pretty tasty burgers! We had them with some steak cut oven chips for a mighty scrummy supper!
