Daddy Sized Burger

I think that Father's Day is not complete without a big burger for dad. It's funny how Mother's Day makes you think of brunch and going out to eat, but Father's Day is about grilling big food. Ok, so I am not a master on the grill, and some people are afraid of me being too close to an open flame. So, my grilling was done inside using a grill pan.

Daddy Sized Burger
2 lb. ground beef
Salt and pepper
Garlic powder
Dried onion flakes
Worcestershire sauce
4 portobello mushrooms
1 leek, sliced and cleaned
Provolone cheese slices
Tomato, sliced

Season ground beef with salt, pepper, garlic powder, dried onion and Worcestershire sauce, mix well and form into 4 big patties. Cook burgers to desired doneness, using desired cooking medium. Drizzle mushroom with olive oil, season with salt and pepper. Roast in 375 degree oven for 5-7 minutes. In skillet, saute leeks with salt and pepper, for 4-5 minutes. On plate, put mushroom on bottom, top with leeks, balsamic drizzle, burger, cheese and tomato slice.

Oven Onion Rings
Adapted from Hungry Girl

  1. Um yummm... but I just ate Southern Barbeque (I'm in North Carolina) and Oh my gosh it was amazing! I wish I wasn't so full, because I think I'd been drooling even more!!
