I do a lot of baking.
It is my job.
It’s my baby business, Bliss Delish’s purpose.
I actually love savory cooking.
I chose baking because it fuels my creativity more, but when I am at home, cooking for myself, I want something savory.
Last week, I headed out to the market to visit with my vending friends (family). I was on a mission to snag some bones. I prayed that L & A Farms had oxtail (they did). When I arrived though, my brain started swirling. Looking down at their products, I needed some ground beef. Hamburgers. You should make hamburgers Brittany. Mental note taken, I began my mission to create a burger.
How to add flavor?
After a heart-filled hug, from Cate and a discussion on energy, Thoreau, crystals, etc. everything cool and awesome to me, I actually looked down at her booth. Kombucha. Check, gotta work on that gut health, especially with people around me getting sick. Spinach. Yes! Spinach became the focal point for the burgers. Grab some carrots for something (throw some in the crockpot with the broth, for sure).
Now. Proceed to me being home hours later after a morning selling scarves. Fridge inspection. What can I add?
Garlic? Check. Red Onion? Check. Goat Cheese? Check. Bacon Fat? Well I have no actually bacon to crumble in it, but the meat is lean, I could add a little fat to the whole mix? Check.
Oh wow, this was sounding so good. My excitement rose. If only I had some mushrooms, it would be like my favorite pizza toppings, stuffed in a burger!
How was it? Freaking delicious. To further back my tasty claims, are my friend Bob. Hours later he popped in. What is that smell? What did you make? It smells so good. Repeat this three times. The aroma lasted for hours, making others salivate when they entered my apartment. For me that is a win.
Britany’s Blissfilled Burgers
- 1 lbs. Ground Beef
- 1 cup spinach, finely chopped
- 1 tbsp minced garlic
- ½ red onion, thinly diced
- 2 oz. Goat cheese, crumbled
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 tbsp bacon fat
Let’s Make it Happen: Place your meat in a bowl. Chop spinach. Mince garlic. Slice onion. Crumble and sprinkle goat cheese over the whole mix. Add the salt and pepper. Plop on some bacon fat. Get your hands in there. Don’t be a wuss, it is the easiest way to evenly distribute the flavors. Form into balls. Slightly flatten. Place in a skillet on medium/high heat. Flip. Cook until done to your likeness. I wrap mine up in lettuce. So tasty!!! No condiments required.
