Summer Burgers, Reconsidered


I love a good burger, really, I do.  But it's so easy for them to be -- pardon the pun -- overdone in the summertime.  My husband loves to grill, and I aim to let him, especially since that means I don't have to cook.  Unfortunately, that often leaves us with leftovers, because, well, he really likes to make burgers and gets overly ambitious at times.

Enter the "Reconsidered Burger."


This burger pictured is one of his delicious creations that has endured the lapping flames of a charcoal grill and the chill of a refrigerator just to be nuked for lunch.  For all its trouble, I decided to give it good company.

In this life, the little slider-sized beef patty is on an open-faced sandwich topped with zucchini and tomatoes (both diced roma and whole grape) sauteed in olive oil, Italian seasoning, a little Balsamic vinegar, and minced onions.

The slightly seasoned burger (fresh minced onion, worchestershire sauce, and I'm not sure what else) helped make this light summer vegetable medley into a meal that will stick with me until the inevitably late summer supper.
