Thursday night is play group  night.  For the past three years, my two friends and I have been meeting on Thursdays so that our sons (all born in February 2006) could get together to play.  These nights are usually very informal — pizza, subs, no stress, no fuss. 

But sometimes, you just get tired of pizza and subs.  So tonight, I thought I would make burgers for the adults and hot dogs for the kids.  A cookout in January!  Yum!

Since my husband is the Grill Master around here, he had the fun job of grilling the burgers and dogs.  I should probably mention that tonight it was 13 degrees outside with 30-40 mph wind gusts!  Not really the best grilling weather.  But, he was tough and took one for the team!

This burger concoction is his brainchild.  One night, while I was on my way to Jill’s house for play group, my husband calls to tell me that he has made “an absolutely incredible burger!”  He proceeded to tell me that he didn’t really have a plan, but just found a few things in the pantry that he thought would go good together.

And, oh my gosh, did they ever go together well!  This is not really a recipe, but a combination of ingredients that, when put together, is possibly the best burger I have ever had!  Oh, and I think my friends really liked them too!

It works best when you pour the glaze on the bun.  This way, the glaze soaks into the bun and is a lot less messy!

Trust me, this burger is worth firing up the grill in the middle of winter!  My husband did a great job with this one!

  1. I saw a recipe for onions like that using walnuts, pecans, and nutritional yeast. They were considered “raw” but I think that would work here…
