Weekend Cooking is Hosted by Beth @ Beth Fish Reads
There are a few recipes that bring back serious childhood memories for me: homemade biscuits with a slice of American cheese melted in the middle for breakfast, tenderized and fried venison and rice, ground chuck roast with carrots and potatoes, and the subject of this week's Weekend Cooking, Barbeque Burgers.
This is a quick meal that my mom used to make for us when we really didn't feel like hamburgers (the same ole same ole routine), but she needed a quick fix for supper or maybe even for a weekend lunch.
I had forgotten all about this simple recipe until my mom made it for my kids at her house. They all were lickin their fingers, and a lightbulb went off in my head.
I start with a pan sprayed well with no-stick spray.
No-stick spray is one of those things I cannot live without.
Then I put my burger patties in, salt and pepper them and brown both sides.
After the burgers are browned on both sides, I drain off the grease.
And add the barbeque sauce...Kraft Honey flavored is my favorite store bought brand.
I actually use an entire small bottle of the barbeque sauce to coat all the burgers really well.
Then I put the lid on the pan and turn down the heat so that the burgers can soak up some of that flavor from the sauce as they finish cooking all the way through.
I flip the burgers again about half way through the "soaking" process...
About this time the smells are wafting through the house, and my kids start making these kind of faces and tummies start to growl...including my own!
This is what barbeque burgers look like when they are done.
I serve them with fries or with PW's Potato Skins, which are another family favorite.
The kids make the burgers however they want.
The Head of My Household eats his plain on a bun, several of us eat them on a bun with a little mayo, and my firstborn puts cheese on hers.
I don't understand the cheese part, but each to her own :)
