Are you having a burger today, 5/28, on National Burger Day?

We are, but they'll also have cheese.

BTW, some of the burger chains are giving away freebies today.

Decided upon Galloway Grill
I had a Bacon N Blu burger.
Jeannie is a rebel so, she had a BLT.
Beer battered spicy fries for us both.
Of course, the apple pie is for later.

And here is the roasted, herb marinated chicken. I served it with a salad of rainbow chard, Boston lettuce, red onion, corn kernels, and chopped pecans with a new batch of vinaigrette. There were fries baked from frozen - made with duck fat. They were good, but not that special. We finished off the last of the leftover pilaf.

Here's Stirling's first plate, with some of the breast:

This was planned well before Hamboiger day...

Miso Pork and Japanese Eggplant Skewers

they were delish - a guaranteed repeat

it was raining so were done on the stove grill.

Sounds interesting and looks tasty. What are "bun burgers"? And are the cheesy mashed potato fries a lot of work? I never heard of that before, but it sounds delish.

We almost had burgers but we don't have any buns. So we had grilled cheese and tomato with egg and lemon soup.

Most every BIG picnic offers burgers and hot dogs. I made the dogs steamed in beer. Extras were Bush's baked beans and fresh steamed corn with grape tomatoes. I grated a bit of Grana Padana on top of my serving.

The mostly cooked burgers, cheese, pickles and onions are all wrapped in yeasted potato dough and baked. Then dipped in sauce as they are eaten.

First time I ever made the cheesy mashed potato fries. They were pretty easy, but I'm going to make some minor edits and make them more tot size next time.

I have to write recipes for a challenge on another forum so will post them here in a day or 2. Both were definite make agains.
