Cooking Thursday - #2

I've been doing the Slow Cooking Thursday for so long now, years actually, and it's had a good run but I've noticed lately that everyone seems to be running out of crockpot recipes to share and I don't want to completely do away with the feature, so I thought it time to change it up a bit.

Cooking Thursday will now replace our weekly crockpot feature to include not only those recipes but also any kind you may wish to share......breakfast, main dishes, desserts etc.

So won't you join me and share with us one of your new recipes, or an old family favorite, you can even throw in a recipe for homemade soaps or detergents (just remember to specify).

For the guidelines, you can go here.



1 ¼ lb. ground beef
3 Tbsp. A1 sauce
1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
½ tsp. Kosher salt
¼ tsp. pepper
2 cloves minced garlic
¾ tsp. dry oregano
1 Tbsp. dehydrated onion

Combine ingredients. If you want big burgers, shape into 4 patties, I used 2 lbs of ground beef and made 8 burgers.

Grill for about 7 minutes on each side over medium. I didn't have charcoal in my grill so I used my griddle which I've done before to make other burgers and they always turn out wonderful.

I like toasted buns (haha) so I do that while the meat is grilling. If you want cheese on your burger, and we always do, place it on top of the patties about 2 minutes or so before they're done cooking.

When done just place on your toasted buns (I can't say this without laughing today haha) and add whatever toppings you wish. I like grilling some onions on the griddle at the same time the patties are cooking. Delish!

I created my post before reading your creative new idea. Next week I will be on track. :) Thanks for hosting SCT all those years, even though I didn't join in every week. I look forward to the NEW Cooking Thursday though.

I like toasted buns too! These burgers look good. Did you name them Samburgers or did that come from someone else?

What a good idea. I will have to have a think and perhaps come up with something next week.

Wendi said...

I love a good burger now and then. I went over to your food blog yesterday and saw that you cooked them on the griddle. Great idea! I don't know why I don't use it for more then breakfast.

Conny said...

Oh how I love your buns (ha ha!!) - just had to join in on the giddiness...
ANyhoo - that burger looks DELICIOUS!

Elizabeth said...

Great thought to use the "pancake" grill for burgers. These sound delish.

Oh and stop sitting on the stove. Unless of course you WANT "toasted buns" !! Thanks for giving me the giggles, too!

Sandra said...

I'll have to try that one for sure.

Terri said...

I posted a crock pot recipe anyway, but I'm glad you opened it up for additional ideas. I like your background and banner. The design is really pretty. I hope you will join me for Crock Pot Wednesday each week. Have a great week.

The sammy sounds oh so yummy! There really is nothing I love more in life than beef and onions mixed together in heavenly way, smashed between two buns. I myself have been baking bread all day. If all goes well I should be blogging about the new and most amazing bread recipie ever. If not, well I suppose I'll blog about the time it didn't work out....yet again! ha!
