Lettuce Wraps May Save Me! (Burgers with Goat Cheese, Onions, and Anaheim Peppers)
These burgers were especially delicious. And I often cook them in a pan on the stove so we don't have to pull out the barbecue, though I know nothing quite beats a grilled burger.
Lettuce-Wrapped Burgers with Goat Cheese, Onions, Tomato, and Anaheim Peppers
- Spice up your ground beef. I always add a good amount of spices when making patties: sea salt, black pepper, cayenne, Chipotle chili powder, and ground mustard...plus anything else I'm in the mood for. You can add an egg if you need to, but often if I'm cooking on the stove, they're fine without.
- When your burger is cooked, top with goat cheese to let it melt a bit.
- Grill your onion and pepper for a moment (not too long...keep it on the crunchy side) and add to your burger. (Technically grilled onions have quite a bit of sugar...but come on!? Who eats a burger without grilled onions?)
- Slice a tomato, throw it on a large bib of lettuce, and slide your burger on. Top with another piece. Enjoy!
