Earlier this week I posted a Tilapia burger recipe that was simply to DIE for. True story. I died three times during the few moments of the first bite.
I was sifting through the many burger recipes, and came to realize I have but NONE beef burgers. Serious? Not intentional- but I can’t help it that I have a slight obsession with burgers of the bean kind, and most recently- seafood burgers.
I was elated to learn that my little city (err.. not so little, actually..I lie.) was getting a new grocery store. Thats right, Trader Joe’s is setting up shop here in Fort Worth, Texas. I know.
I’ve only been to TJ’s once in my life- in Seattle when we were visiting my Fireman’s precious Aunt Jenny. FireAunt is amazing. Quite amazing, for sure. ANYWAY. She introduced me to Trader Joe’s several years ago, and then I came back to Texas. No Trader Joe’s.
I got the first flyer in the mail this week, and among their featured items was a Mahi Mahi burger- whoa.
Daydreaming at the moment, excuse me while I wipe the drool from my chin. So yes- seafood burgers are a must in my life.
This burger has nothing to do with TJ’s, or seafood- but it is beef! See.. you can have a beef burger and still stick to your healthy diet. Although my beef burgers aren’t a quarter pound doused in processed cheese.
They ARE, however, stuffed to the brim with flavor.. and cheese. I also learned that basil and beef are a new found combo that can’t be duplicated.
My Fireman graciously manned the grill- I promise to plan meals around ‘non-busy’ times at the pool. Excuse’m. What days would that be when it is SUMMER?
I guessed, and apparently Monday nights aren’t crazy packed, and we made out space on the grill to get these herb-studded burger smokin’.
While he was doing the ‘man‘ work (I couldn’t even tell you how to turn the grill on.. I know, what a girl I am.) I prepared this yummy condiment to dollop on our grilled goodness.
Sundried Tomato & Basil Aioli.
Looky here at the result.
I may have died again just remembering this meal.
See. Beef is GOOD.
Especially when it is stuffed with cheese and topped with all kinds of insane flavor.
The first love of my (foodie) life? Bean Burgers. Close second? Seafood burgers- and now this burger is close in line to being among my top three.
Who am I kidding. Sandwiches, in general, pretty much rock my world. This sandwich included.
