New Burger Recipe

Pretty simple stuff, but I figured I would share this from last night's cook.  Over the holidays, my brother bought me Weber's Big Book of Burgers, so my wife and I tried a new recipe from it last night.  Pretty good stuff.  The burgers have nutmeg in them, a grilled apple slice, a little lettuce, white cheddar cheese (they called for Havarti, which I didn't have) and a grilled pretzel bun.  Really good stuff.  Anyway, enjoy !

    What was the burger mix, 80/20?
  • Yep.  80/20.  I added a little of Myron Mixon's Original dry rub in it and as mentioned above 1 tsp of nutmeg.

  • Would never have thought to put nutmeg in a burger, but I can imagine it would pair nicely with the apple.

    1 tsp of nutmeg is enough for 30 pumpkin pies. Holy crap.

    How did it taste? I’ve never thought of grilling an apple or putting saidbgrilled apple on a burger

    It was definitely different.  My wife and I absolutely loved it.  It had a sweet taste, obviously.  I hit the temp dead on medium.  The combination of the fresh grilled pretzel bun, nutmeg in the meat, perfect temp, and grilled apple made for a really different flavor.  I'm pretty good at burgers (as I'm sure I'm not alone here) so when I go out to eat, I rarely find a burger that really hits the mark.  That said, however, I typically stay in my comfort zone when I make them at home.  The typical: bacon, fried egg, mushrooms, lettuce, tomatoes, etc.  This was outside of that normal comfort zone given the flavors added here.  But it was great!  Oh, and just to add, that was 1 tsp. nutmeg in just over a pound of 80/20.  Not overwhelming - just complimentary. 

    One more gratuitous close up.
