Joseph has moved back from California and we are in the transistion mess of me moving furniture out and he moving his stuff in! In the midst of all of that he has taken the time to cook for his mom.
The first was his Teriyaki Burger the night he arrived. He and Saia fired up the grill and cooked for Stacy and me while we watched The Bachelorette. His best bud Chris came over too. It was so good that I wanted him to make it again for Vic when he came to Austin.
Yesterday for lunch we enjoyed them again. Here is what I remember he does… he uses 80/20 hamburger. He then adds salt, pepper, ground ginger and Veri Veri Terihaki sauce by Soy Vay. When he told me… I went and googled it to see where I could find it in Austin…Super Target. I must say that is the best Teriyaki ever.
While grilling, Saia toasted the buns in the oven. Then there is a specific way to load the buns. First mayo on each side, on top of that Joseph’s homemade Honey Mustard on both sides. Then on the bottom bun you put Wickles Relish….well I had to Google them too, called them and found that at Randall’s. It is a spicy sweet relish…very good as well.
On top of the mayo, mustard and Wickles…place the burger. Top the burger with a slice of Colby Jack cheese. Top the cheese with fresh Spinach and then 1 slice of bacon, cut in half and then top it all with the top bun.
A veri veri good burger that was loved by all.
Note: I did share with Joseph and Saia how to cook bacon in the oven … no mess to clean up and perfect bacon every time.
Take a jelly roll pan and line up the bacon side by side … touching each other … place in the oven at 425 degrees and bake for about 13-15 minutes or longer depending on how crispy you want the bacon.
