Just had a battle with a sinus infection that kicked my a$$. Ended up in the hospital and lost about 25lbs. :blink:
Well, now that I can eat again, I think I know how to get back on track....BURGERS :laugh:

A few pics
Burgers were stuffed with shrooms,onions,motz and sliced cheese

Burgers on

How about some more cheese :laugh:

This will help

On the inside

These were just what the doctor ordered,
I am glad to be able to eat again. :laugh:

Thanks for looking

Hope everyone has a great Easter weekend :)

    Wow, nice burgers shane. Making me hungry. Sorry to hear about the sinus ailments. I have a reoccuring sinus problem, but this helps me alot:

    I get mine at walmart for 10 bucks, it really helps when the allergies kick up each spring.

    Hi Shane,

    Hope you are feeling better- sorry to hear about your illness.

    Those burgers look great! Any tips/technique for stuffing the burgers? Did you do them by hand or do you have a gizmo?

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg. 

  • Mr HollowayMr Holloway Posts: 2,034
    Thanks SP
    These were done by hand.
    I just tried not to overstuff them and got a good seal around the edges :)

    Now that's a burger! How big are those? Hope you don't see the inside of a hospital any time soon.Take care,Randy

    Hi Shane, Glad to hear you are well again. Sinus infections can be "I want my Mommy" icky. Do you know about a neti pot? You both should get your own.

    That burger looks like comfy cozy food on a bun! Nice job. ;)

    It was your stuffed burger that got me craving :evil:

  • Mr HollowayMr Holloway Posts: 2,034

    "want your mommy" icky is hilarious and describes it perfect :laugh:

    I am going to grab a pot in the morning
    3 dogs and not being able to open up the house is probably not helping
