this week's new recipe

Because I get bored with the same meals over and over, I have decided to mix it up and try a new recipe once a week. This week I have been struggling with just which new recipe to try.  Part of the deal I made with myself was that I would actually follow the recipe - I don't usually do that. It's Saturday. I hadn't planned on making a run to town, but this morning Lovey gave me spouted off a list of things he needed. I told him that I could make the trip because I still needed to decide on a new recipe to cook tonight. He reminded me that he wanted burgers which sounded pretty easy to me, and I agreed to cook burgers. But I still wanted to do a new recipe.

I decided on mushroom Swiss burgers. Not really a new recipe because I didn't have a recipe. But kind of a new recipe because I've never cooked mushroom swiss burgers.

I picked up the ingredients for the burgers. Lean Angus beef, cheese, Texas toast instead of plain hamburger buns, and of course mushrooms.

While Lovey cooked the patties, I cooked the baby bella mushrooms and red onion with a bit of Worcestershire.

This smelled so yummy while it cooked. Lovey melted Swiss cheese on the patties as they cooked. I mixed some garlic powder, chili powder, Worcestershire, and black pepper with the Miracle Whip for a spread.  And finally I built my burger.

It was huge. And so GOOD. I added a few of the mushrooms and onions on my plate. I just love mushrooms! Try as I might, I couldn't eat all of that giant burger.

So it wasn't technically a new recipe, but it was something new. Baby Jus loved his. I think this is one I'll do again.

I have to say Lovey didn't eat the same burger we did. He had cheddar cheese and no mushrooms and onions. Sometimes it takes a while to get him to eat something new. He's just a tad bit picky - if his momma didn't cook it, he has to work his way to trying it. Maybe next time he'll give these a try.
