Hubby Creations

Truth be told, Jon doesn't spend a lot of time in the kitchen cooking – cleaning yes, but not cooking. (He says that his constant cleaning and maintenance of the kitchen sink (including the dishes), counters, and floors is what allows me to - as he looks around at the stove - splattered with tomato sauce, and the sink littered with pots and pans and utensils - “do what you do.” Hahaha. Which I must admit is pretty accurate of our relationship – at least in regard to the kitchen.)

But every once in a while he takes the initiative to make dinner (and sometimes it is even something I can eat– unlike his and his brother's disgusting obsession with hamburger helper - which, to me, doesn't even smell like real food). Lucky for me, this weekend was one of those instances where it was something edible, and it was simply great to be able to kick back and eat a good meal without having to have cooked it!

A very simple recipe, Jon's bagel burgers are juicy, robust and delicious. Simple. But GREAT! These are quickly becoming my favorite burgers (changing up the bagel, the cheese and other toppings every once in a while for some variety). We're keeping a log of all the different creations.... just in case we ever decide to open up a burger joint.

Hubby's Basic Bagel Burger Recipe
(Makes 2 Burgers)

The burgers are basically plain ground beef patties (approximately 1/4 pound, but sometimes he overestimates) with a few grinds of our McCormick Steakhouse Seasonings Grinder and some McCormick Signatures Roasted Garlic and Bell Pepper Seasoning Blend and then topped with a few tbsp of A1 Steak Sauce. Then he cooks them (to our personal tastes, mine-medium and his well-done) on our NEW George Foreman grill (a wedding gift that Jon considers to be “for him,” from his step-sister and her family).

The burgers are then placed on a toasted everything bagel and topped with a few slices of tomato (and onion for him), deli-sliced American cheese, ketchup, and (if we had had any) lettuce. Serve with your favorite sides (we chose sweet corn on the cob and potato salad) and enjoy!
