Grilled Mustard-Dill Burgers

Grilled Mustard-Dill Burgers

Happy Memorial Day to everyone in the US! If you’re like most Americans you are probably grilling something today. So, in honor of that, I bring you Grilled Mustard-Dill Burgers. I still have a zillion pounds of ground beef from the side of beef we purchased last November, so I’ll probably be grilling burgers every single weekend this summer. It’s a tough job, but someone’s got to do it. Between burgers on Saturday and roasting a chicken on Sundays, my weekends are planned from now until..oh say..October or November! Again, I reiterate, my life = boring.

This was a really easy and quick way to jazz up burgers. They were very moist and flavorful. The dill flavor was not too prominent, which I liked. You couldn’t really tell what was flavoring it, only that it was different than a plain burger.

Grilled Mustard-Dill Burgers
from
The Bon Appetit Cookbook: Fast Easy Fresh
Serves 2

3 tablespoons sour cream
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
10 ounces lean ground beef

2 hamburger buns, split
2 tomato slices
2 Bibb lettuce leaves

Prepare barbecue (medium-high heat). Mix first 3 ingredients in medium bowl. Transfer 3 tablespoons sauce to small bowl and reserve. Add meat to remaining sauce in medium bowl and mix gently. Divide meat mixture into 2 equal portions. Flatten each to 1/2-inch-thick patty; sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Grill cut side of buns until toasted, about 1 minute. Grill patties to desired doneness, about 4 minutes per side for medium. Spread bottom half of buns with reserved sauce. Top each with burger, tomato slice, lettuce and bun top.

    I never would have thought to add sour cream to the meat! Between that and the mustard, it must be moist.
    Think I’ll give it a try next weekend. Today is BBQ ribs!

    Mmmmm… I can almost smell it from here!
    I was thinking of doing burgers tonight, so I might give these a try.
    I don’t have sour cream right now, but the milkman is due… so I’m going to give these a go!
