Fresh Eats

Farmgirls–I have a new favorite food. And–lucky you! I am going to let you in on this rare discovery.  I haven’t found a new go-to food for quite a while, so it has been fun to add something new into our rotating food repertoire.

No, it isn't cotton candy. We went to the Winter Show Rodeo in North Dakota, though!

It has only taken me several decades to discover just how delicious this mouth watering creation can be. It is a juicy, savory, and unpretentious all-in-one meal. They can be creative, complex or simple; and–perhaps most notable of all–they are quintessentially American.

Are you teetering on the edge of your seat? What could this amazing food possibly be?

    We raise our own beef and I must say that there is nothing better than a homemade cheese burger. I prefer Colby Jack cheese with a small amount of mustard and a slice of onion on mine. Yummy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I’m so glad you decided to try a food again that you didn’t like as a child. Good lesson for your kiddos! Funny how our taste changes over time. It took me over 20 years to like green beans, although it helped that my husband grew them in our garden instead of buying a can from the store. And, tomatoes are a work in progress. Our family just finished our yearly butchering of beef and pigs. What was the first thing I made? Burgers!!! We mix worcestershire, hot sauce, cream and salt and pepper into the meat. Also, we had caribou burgers once after my father in law came home from a hunting trip. Yummy! Love your posts and happy spring to you!

    I use my own ground lamb with ground wild elk, lots of minced garlic, chopped reishi mushrooms, a handful of organic rolled oats, a ‘glug’ each of organic italian dressing and org ketchup, sometimes a local egg, seasoned with a grind of pepper, smoked sea salt. I make a batch of patties at a time and freeze them. Truly a great burger, whether grilled or pan fried…as you say, don’t overcook!

    It’s so funny you happen to mention the best burgers ! We discovered two places in our area of New York . I’m talking the New York with hills and farm land as far as the eyes can see. There is a bar call TommyBoys. The best burger ever, lettuce tomato thin slice of red onion and mayo. Cheese too. I save the tooth picks from our burgers! Like notches in a fun. Lol. Another place in the city of Rochester is a place call The Beer Park. Made to look like an old diner with lots of beer taps. Just one light for me but their burger is just wonderful ! Same ingredients and tastes mouth watering. That sounds like fun having a book club at a bar with great food.

    I made an awesome burger at home with grass fed beef on whole grain bun with very little
    condiments and maybe a few organic carrot sticks and yes katsup.!

    I personally use 80/20 ground chuck beef, salt, pepper fried in cast iron pan, topping with yellow american cheese! Nothing better! Although here in Roanoke, Va there’s a joint called Jack Brown’s. They use 100% wagyu beef. They are out of this world!
