Burger and Fries at Home

Oh why is the time going so fast!   Halloween and  Thanksgiving just gone by and now Christmas time is fast approaching as well.  
Anyhow, how was your Thanksgiving celebration?   We used to have a family tradition for it but ever since my father-in-law passed away, we just kind of do our own things.  We make non-traditional food to share with our kids at home every year.  In the previous years, we tried to make the traditional food  for Thanksgiving but since it is only the  four of us,  the  leftover is overwhelming so this year, I only made what we can eat.  I made a briskit pot  roast and we ate it with rice.  My husband and daughter  baked a pineapple upside down cake for dessert.  
 I was born and raised in Asia so our meals always consist of Asian food but I make sure to incorporate  my  husband's  favorite American food as well.   His favorites include  spaghetti, lasagna, shepherd's pie, pulled pork sandwich and burgers. 
 Since he loves burger, I thought that having this burger  press patty maker from Cavetools would be awesome.  I can make it at home for a lot less and I can make the way his palate likes.  For this recipe, I only used a pound of ground beef, 1/4 cup of breadcrumbs, 1/4 cup of mayonnaise, black pepper and salt, and chopped onions.   
 I did not make it thick so  the cooking process won't be long.  My husband  like his burger fully cooked so making it thinner is the easier and faster way to cook it.  A palm-sized burger meatball is perfect to press in the patty maker.
 I like the design of this aluminum burger presser.  The palm shaped handle helps reduce fatigue  when you  are pressing multiple burgers.  The set includes a bonus of 200 square burger papers which makes removing  and  separating the burgers easier.  It is dishwasher safe for easy cleaning.
 I love that it has the grill line design so even if you are using a flat skillet, the burger  still looks like  BBQed on a grill.

 The square burger papers makes it easier to stack the burgers for freezing.  You can get this  burger press patty maker  directly from Cavetools thru the link I have provided in this post or you can get it via  amazon   and enjoy a 15% Off the price by using this discount promo code, BURGER15.
 Glad my husband liked the homemade burgers and fries.  I am not much of a burger fan but making it at home and loading it with  spicy peppers  makes a big difference for me.

I like using a hamburger press as well. Makes them all equal in size and easier to cook. These look delicious

It does seem like Thanksgiving flew by this year. Looks like you had a great meal. That burger press sure would come in handy when making burgers!

Melissa Chapman said...

It is so nice you make your husband his typical food and it does look so good. I have not made burgers lately but I love the vegetarian version.

Jeannette said...

That sounds delightful! I have never used him because that's before but I am betting that is something my husband would love because he is the one typically making the hamburgers.

I agree the years seem to be going faster and faster, where does the time go to. We do not have Thanksgiving, but yes generally we celebrate Christmas. This year though I think it will pass us by. We will be in the UK caring for my FIL who has Alzheimers, he is almost 98 and although fit in body, I am afraid the head is not very good and he does not always remember our names any more. We will be there for 6 weeks and then my husband's sister will return to care for him, she has been there all year. Life is not easy and he refuses to go into a home.
Take care and I hope you have a good Christmas. Diane

Burgers are a fave in our house ANY day. My husband makes the best burgers. I like to use the Foreman Grill but he uses a cast iron skillet and cooks them just right.

All the food you make is so mouthwatering brisket is one of my favorite. It been a while since I ate burger I love the idea of making my own patties.

Janet Coon said...

Funny but I just finished pressing burgers to freeze. These look delicious and I'm going to have to try adding more ingredients to mine next time.

Those burgers look so good! I've never used a burger press before, but I think it would make burger cooking so much easier.

We usually associate Burgers with McDonalds. Now making them at home seems really exciting. We love our burgers and french fries though of the vegetarian kind.
