Grilled Burgers Topped w/ Fontina, Mushrooms, Onions and Red Peppers
This evening I decided to grill something for dinner. I had originally planned to grill some seasoned boneless chicken thighs, but when I opened the package they smelled "funky" (and it was still days away from the "sell by" date too)...but when in doubt, throw it out...and I did. I regrouped and grabbed a pack of ground beef out of the fridge. This weekend I had picked up a couple packs of grass fed ground beef. I have never been very much of a beef eater (since childhood)...but I know grass fed is supposed to be healthier for you so I thought I'd give it a try. Well...I am here to report that it was good but a bit pricey. Of course, hubby liked it more than I did...but I am not the best person to ask about beef. However, I did jazz mine up a bit which made it really good! I sauteed some onions, red bell pepper and sliced mushrooms in a little olive oil and served my burger over a bed of the veggies, topped with fontina cheese and a few more of the veggies. I also roasted some fresh asparagus in the oven with a little bit of olive oil, sea salt and black pepper to serve with our burgers. It was a quick and easy dinner. I snapped a couple pics below (as well as my berry delicious dessert). Enjoy!
