There have been several posts recently of wonderfully delicious burgers and this shows not only the skill of this group, but the versatitlity of the humble hamburger. We love a good burger and make them frequently. I usually dont take pictures as they are just burgers, but this time I thought I would share what Missus Juju and I have come to crave in the burger world.

We started with some freshly ground antibiotic-free organic ground Charles and I made a big and a small burger with a dimple in the middle. Sorry... no raw pics. Grilled mushrooms and onions are almost always part of the cook, sometimes bacon, and there is never a bun on a naked burger. I also wanted to try something different so I cut a turnip like steak fries to be grilled to go with my burger. I tossed them in canola oil and seasoned well with my seasoned salt. I grilled them for about 30 minutes turning frequently. Quite tasty, but still turnips, so if you like turnips give them a go. If you do not, you should try new things occasionally. :D

Onions and mushrooms were prepared in the house while I worked the turnips and burgers outside. I also had a romaine salad with Cindy's sun-dried tomato dressing and shredded Manchego cheese.

You know I had some mustard close by!

Don't be afraid to give a bun-less burger a go... you may be surprised at how much more the burger flavor stands out when not tucked inside a small loaf of bread. :twisted: Either way enjoy a good burger! :cow:

A burger that is that good doesn't need the bun. Besides, with all of those toppings I think it would break the bun anyway. :twisted:

Thankis for the pics, Qjuju! I think I might even try turnips like that too.
Unlike propane, you'll never wake up scorched and naked in another county because you mishandled a bag of briquettes.

This is what I like to see-- wonderful creation there, Qjuju! "Chucky gets lucky." What kind of mustard this time? You know, your bunless rendition reminds me of one of my old classic comfort favs, the Salisbury steak. No kidding, sometimes, the bun is best left out of the picture! :D :bbq:
Got beer???

BC... The mustard this time was the McIlhenny brand like the other pic I posted just the coarse ground Dijon instead of the Spicy Brown. It's is tasty too, but less spicy as the name would imply.

Sr... Mrs. Juju did the onions. Simple cook with butter in a skillet. She is a bit more gentle than I am with onions. :lol:

Thanks for the kind words! You know I really do not miss the bun. Sounds weird to me to even say that as much as I used to like them. I just don't like it anymore.

I agree, I try and avoid Gluten (flour based products) and once you stopping eating them you don't really miss them.

Looks great Juju. What is Charles? That just a take off of chuck or is it a special cow? Either way, looks good.

Nice job, Q! I'm not a big fan of root vegetables but I'd give those turnips a try - did they lose their natural crispness while still staying firm?
