I was a little worried when I got home tonight. I walked into an empty house and a lonely Corgi sitting by the door. I knew John was out giving his sister a ride home, so I wasn't concerned about that. Then I walked into a kitchen with nothing bubbling on the stove and a cold oven.
I felt like a 1950's husband. Where's my dinner?!?!?!?
So I felt sorry for myself and changed my clothes. Then John got home. I remembered after he reminded me that we were having mushroom Swiss burgers for dinner.
In minutes he was melting butter.
Adding sliced mushrooms he picked up yesterday. Sprinkle on a little Lawry's Seasoning Salt & some black pepper.
Forming three perfect patties that weighed exactly the same. He used a scale to make sure! The 85% ground chuck was on sale at Fareway several weeks ago for $2.69 a pound. This is our favorite, with lots of flavor. And since it was over $1.00 cheaper than normal, we bought 10 packages for the freezer.
Soon the smells in the kitchen were intoxicating!
He added some Swiss from our cheese stash. (and gave me a piece so I'd quit drooling over the food)
The mushrooms were sauteed and the cheese melted.
Some wheat bread, some crunchy carrots and a few veggie straws completed an awesome meal.
It was super tasty and definitely being added to the regular menu rotation.
