The burgers ready to be devoured

The burgers ready to be devoured

It’s summer, burger season. I like burgers as much as the next person, but don’t eat them too much because I’m the type who can’t indulge too much or all of a sudden I’ve gained 15 pounds. But, when I saw MICHEL RICHARD’s hamburger buns for sale at the 14th and U farmers market, I knew I had to make some burgers. And not just any burger, because this is MICHEL RICHARD’s buns and no ketchup with American cheese was going to grace them.

So, I came up with: carmelized onions (a budget favorite: very cheap and very good, though time consuming to make), goat cheese, arugula, and a fabulous grainy mustard. I think Michel would approve.

Budget: $10 for 3 servings, or $3.33 a burger. They’re a bit more expensive at Central (PDF).
