Ahh…summertime! It’s when the kiddos are free to play, weekends are all about friends and family get-togethers, and your BBQ grill gets to work!
But, that doesn’t mean you have to.
Yep! There’s nothing like a hassle-free dinner, al fresco and under the summer stars. And when you’ve got yourself this no-fail recipe for “Sonora Burgers” (thanks to my brother-in-law, Johnnie!), with a surprising “bun”, you can practically kick up your feet as you prepare this flavorful feast!
Sonora Burger Ingredients:
- 1 – 2 lb. 80/20 Ground Beef (for a lighter version use ground turkey)
- Lawry’s Spice (or your favorite*)
- salt and pepper
- American Cheese (this is a MUST ingredient…it really makes this burger special!)
- Red Onions
- Sir Kensington Ketchup and Sriracha Mayonnaise (delicious, no high-fructose sugar and non-GMO verified)
Take-it-Up-a-Notch (flavor & calories) OPTIONAL ingredients:
- 1/2 lb. sausage
- 1/2 lb. pork
- chopped garlic ‘n butter
*I’ve discovered Trader Joe’s Organic Sriracha & Roasted Garlic BBQ Sauce – it’s divine!
1. Prepare your grill.
Using your HomeRight ElectroLight Fire Starter, you can save a TON of time without the need for lighter fluid or a chimeny! Simply add your charcoals, plug in your Fire Starter, then touch the tip of it to your coals for approximately 10-15 seconds. When you see the coals glow a slight orange, pull back the tip of your Fire Starter about 3 inches for about 2-3 minutes.
“The Fire Starter works great and would be a big help for entertaining large groups,” said my brother-in-law, Johnnie. “If this was cordless, it would make grilling even easier.”
