The Hungry Mouse does it again!

Yes, Jessie, you are awesome! Jessie came back from an unexpected break with an awesome recipe. I want to express my sympathies for Jessie's loss. My heart goes out to you and your family and my thoughts and prayers are with you all. While you were gone you were missed big time - by me especially!

Jessie's first post was this delicious looking Basil and Garlic Pork Burgers. This was another one of those "I see it, I have to make it NOW" recipes!

Grumpy arrived home late last evening and I had already made the burgers and the first thing he said was "I have to be honest with you, it doesn't smell good." I was like WHAT?? I was telling my friend Karen while I was making them that the house smelled awesome. See how different Grumpy and I are?! But, let me tell you this. Grumpy ate the burgers. He finished the burger. Then I asked (because, like the grump he is, he doesn't say when he likes anything too often) how the burgers were and guess what? He liked them. Way to go Jessie. Grumpy ate lots of fresh garlic and basil in a pork burger. Something he would have never chosen on his own.

One of the ingredients is mashed garlic. I want to share you some info on mashing garlic that I saw on Everyday Italian! After you chop your garlic, you sprinkle it with some salt. You then drag the flat edge of the knife over the garlic and press. Gather it back together and continue doing so. The salt helps to break down the garlic and bring out the liquid.

If you want the recipe (with detailed directions on how to make the burger) make sure you check out Jessie's post. Thank YOU Jessie. You did it again. You posted an awesome recipe that I knew as soon as I saw, I just HAD to make it. Keep up the awesome work!!

Haha, Grumpy is a hoot! I can't imagine a kitchen smelling better than when there's garlic and basil cooking! YUM. And those pork burger sound so healthy and delicious. I can't wait to try them out!

Looks delicious! I get so offended when my husband says things like that. Men can be so very undiplomatic can't they!

Mags said...

These do look awesome! I'm thinking of maybe trying them with ground turkey?

Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting. I can see that I'll be a regular visitor here as well.

Nice place you've got here!

Mmm. I am loving these burgers - they look so good.

The spicy shrimp pasta also looks amazing - great photos.

Ingrid said...

Yum, loved the look of the seared outside. These sound really good. I don't like and eat regular burgers so these would be a nice alternative for me. Thanks.

Happy Friday!

This looks so very, very tasty! Mr. Noodle prefers beef burgers but I think he won't object to something this savory.

LOL about Grumpy. He is very dear in his own irascible way.
