Quinoa Beet Black Bean Burgers


I bought some golden beets on a whim the other day because I thought they looked pretty and they were only $2 for a bunch. So I roasted them and made a salad with walnuts and blue cheese. The salad was good, but not something I could eat every night for dinner. As I contemplated…

The Ultimate Double Decker Frisco Burger


I grew up in a very small town. It was so small that the only fast-food restaurant we had for the longest time was Hardee’s. McDonald’s and Taco Bell came along eventually and we also got a Pizza Hut. And just this past year Starbucks finally came to town (along with a Qdoba). The burger…

Butter Burgers


  I grew up in a state famous for “butter” burgers yet it never occurred to me to make one at home until I read a blog about them on Honest & Tasty. The author, Bita, lived in Chicago for a spell and in her Homemade Butter Burgers post talks about how she and her…

Kobe Beef Arugula Burger


One of my favorite places in town to get a really good burger is at Berlin Bistro on 4th and Elm. There are two burgers on the regular menu. I’ve had both. Both fabulous. But the one I really like is the Arugula Burger. It obviously has arugula on it but it’s also dressed with…

Sweet Potato Black Bean {veggie} Burgers


On a whim one night many months ago I made the Pioneer Woman’s black bean burger and fell so in love with it I was hoping to find a burger recipe similar but with sweet potato added. I was actually hoping the Pioneer Woman would have such a recipe but a quick google search did not…

Open Faced Broiled Burgers


I love burgers. Love ’em. If you look at my Instagram page you’ll see it’s mostly food sprinkled with pictures of my dogs and sometimes some coffee or my nails. But mainly just food. And if you assess the food situation, honestly? It’s mainly just burgers. Oddly, I almost never make burgers at home and…

Pioneer Woman’s Black Bean Burgers


Oh my. I didn’t think I would EVER say this about a veggie burger but I am in LOVE with this burger. While my best friend was visiting me, I made us what was supposed to be a very easy black bean burger. I added spinach to the recipe and the black bean burgers became…

Zucchini, Quinoa and Mushroom Veggie Burgers


I’m preparing to kick meat and dairy to the curb 3 to 5 days of the week, possibly more. To be honest, I don’t eat that much meat to begin with so kicking meat to the curb won’t be super difficult. It’s the dairy part I struggle with! That’s why I say I’m going to…

Ramen Burgers


What’s that you say? Ramen burger? Well technically it’s not a burger made out of ramen (only the ramen seasoning) but it’s the bun that’s made out of ramen noodles. I found the recipe for this burger courtesy of the website thought i might suggest … Um. Burger buns made out of ramen noodles? Strange, yes?…

Spinach and Feta Turkey Burgers


My grandma and I have good taste. We both clipped this recipe from the Penzeys Spices magazine! I made these turkey burgers when my dad was in town (in an effort to eat “healthier” with him). I ate mine on Brioche Buns bought at the Portland Farmers Market (the buns were the BOMB) and topped…

Quinoa Cashew Burgers


Last week I had a friend in town, and we went to Deschutes Brewery Saturday for lunch where we sampled some beer and split both a burger and Quinoa and Cashew Burger. Prior to biting into the “veggie” burger, I was intrigued. Post bite, I was in love. I decided I must recreate the burger at…

Black Bean Burgers


A hearty alternative to a hamburger, if you’re vegetarian or health conscious this ‘burger’ will knock your socks off. Here’s what I said about the burger in 2011: I couldn’t find any ground cumin (which frankly seems a bit odd but if you’ve ever seen my cupboards you would understand why I’m not inspired to…

Chubby Cheese Sliders


Last week I made barbecued pulled pork by combining my shredded Pork Butt with my coworker’s spicy homemade barbecue sauce. The pulled pork simmered on low in a crockpot beneath my cubicle for six hours before we scooped it onto slider buns. The barbecue pulled pork sliders were delicious. That night I brought home several…

Walnut Burger


Looks like a real burger! Good taste, but the recipe needs improvement.
