Memorial Day Cheeseburgers!

It’s officially summer in NYC, time for backyard BBQs, walks in the park and sweating it out in the subway stations.  

It also means that the fleet is in for Fleet Week….well hello sailor!

In honor of Memorial Day this year, I salute our devoted servicemen and women with the most American thing I can think of.....a cheeseburger!  NYC loves you and thanks you for your devoted service. So up kick your feet, grab a beer and enjoy the guilty pleasure of a greasy burger because, baby, you've earned it.

1 lb ground beef
1 tbsp BBQ rub seasoning
1 tbsp Worchestershire Sauce
1 tsp dried parsley
1 avocado, sliced
1 beefsteak tomato, sliced
4 slices pepperjack cheese
4 hamburger buns
cooking spray

  1. Mix together ground beef, BBQ rub, Worchestershire sauce and parsley. Form into 4 flat patties (about 1/4 inch each). Note: try not to overwork the meat because that will result in tough burgers.
  2. Heat a frying pan coated with cooking spray over high heat. Add burgers and cook for 3 minutes.
  3. Flip burgers and add cheese. Cover and cook for an additional 3 minutes.
  4. Assemble burgers on buns with avocado and tomato slices. Enjoy!
