Last night the main floor of our house got it’s first holes in it. The majority of everything in the babes’ room and the den is now deposited in our living room.
We’re now officially roughing-it.
It’ll be 37 degrees this Thursday, I haven’t had the oven on for quite sometime and I’m getting sort of tired of bbq. I’m also making my possible exit plan for a hotel stay.
In the meantime I want a burger that is different but still appealing to my “normal” food, loving mom.
How about beef bourginon?
The idea is to have the flavours of beef bourginon infuse into the ground beef.
Get everything ready; 1 cup of red wine, an egg, a green onion (sliced), 3 garlic cloves (minced), healthy dash of worstershire, 1 sundried tomato (cut into small pieces), 1 tsp. dried basil (or 2 T. fresh chopped), salt and pepper and 1 cup breadcrumbs.
Mix everything with 2 lbs. of ground beef-actually, it’s sort of gross to mix so sucker your mom into doing this part.
I’m actually only making burgers out of half of this as the rest I’d like in the form of meatballs for sandwiches etc to last us for a couple of days worth of sandwiches. Let sit in the fridge for a couple of hours. If you see that the wine is completely absorbed partway through, then add a bit more. You want it to reach the saturation point.
Form into elongated patties and serve on a chunk of french stick with blue cheese sauce (recipe to come later this week).
Fingers crossed we can figure-out some sort of air-conditioning alternative.

That looks so delicious; very creative and clever! Today is the first hot day we've had and I don't envy you one bit. It was hard enough walking around (read: lumbering around, sweating like a maniac, huffing and puffing while I pushed the stroller) without smog and uber humidity.
Today is ok but later this week is going to be scary. I remember the baby lumbering, we're pretty lucky with the air quality here but the humidity is not fun.You are totally welcome to borrow mom. She will only ask you the same questions every three seconds and then you also need to hear a lot of stories about her cats.

I love it….the recipe I mean. We are camping and it sounds we have more comfort then you…poor thing.Hotel sounds like a dandy idea to me…little vacay
sounds delish! and so much easier than the original!
So much easier with the heat too.
I agree the weather is not favorable on me either love your recipe my mom has showed me many different ways to make burgers some of which I shard on my blog at http://shopannies.blogspot.com
I would have never thought to combine these flavors into a burger! What a great idea! I hope you are managing to stay cool. This is our first summer up north and it has gotten brutally hot up here. We don't have a/c like I had down south so we are miserable. Praying for some cool weather to show up soon for everyone! Have a great weekend and take care!
It's been a bit of a challenge but my husband got the a/c rolling and we're just hunkered down here.
Thank you so much for stopping by Cast Party Wednesday last week. I really appreciate you sharing your recipe with us. I hope you will join us again for another awesome party filled with yummy recipes.Thanks Again!
So glad to be there. Look forward to tomorrow.
