Lately, we've been having fun grilling, and we found pre-made patties at Widmer's, a small local St. Paul market known for their meat counter. They are $1 a piece roughly, and delicious. They are pretty much just plain meat, but for me, the burger is about the condiments, lettuce, tomatoes etc. Not a bad price, supporting a local market and don't have to mix raw meat and egg with my hands. Plus, burgers cook really quick on the grill which helps get a family meal on the table.
Try with local asparagus. I wash, then boil until tender (8 or 9 minutes) and serve with a sauce that M likes.
Random pink sauce recipe for asparagus
Mix 2 Tbspn miracle whip, 2 tspn white vinegar, 1-2 tspn ketchup, 1 Tbspn evaporated milk (not condensed sweetened.) Its really sweet, and something my husband won't eat, but I ate it as a kid with asparagus, and M likes it too! Hubbie eats the asparagus plain, which when they are in season is a real treat too.
