We can’t let grilling season pass by without putting the meat mincer attachment to use! Perfect for freshly made burgers using whatever kind of meat you want. We’ve used chicken thighs to create a flavorful and juicy burger stuffed with feta cheese and fig jam. Then we broke out the blender attachment to quickly whip up an arugula walnut pesto to go along with them. And if you really want to go all out, well, the mixer does an excellent job making homemade hamburger buns.
Continuing on with the food holiday theme this month, and tipping my hat to National Hamburger Day on July 28th. How do you make a really great burger? Grind your own meat. How do you make it taste even better? Make your own hamburger buns. And how do you really take it over the top? Fill it with a little homemade pimento cheese and slather some of that delicious southern spread on the bun as well. That’s right, multiple recipes in this post for the ultimate summer grilling sandwich.
In the bonus post for this month (subscribe to receive!) I was talking about all the great attachments that come with the Meat Mincer Complete package that have nothing to do with grinding meat or making sausages. It got me thinking about ways to make this attachment appealing to someone that doesn’t eat a lot of meat, like me. So then I was determined to make a vegetarian burger using the meat grinder. Sacrilegious, I know. But the former vegetarian in me got a laugh out of it. Now, I have nothing against eating meat and use the grinder all the time for tasty burgers, meatballs, etc. It is an awesome meat grinder, but it also makes a pretty fabulous mushroom burger too.
