Italian Burgers I loved eating and making these burgers. Summer is almost done and I feel like grilling and eating all sorts of fresh produce. I had been busy all day Friday and we didn’t have any plans for dinner. We got home around five and I decided to grill burgers, roast some potato wedges and make a salad- simple summertime meal.

I still had to go and buy some ground beef. Usually I prefer turkey meat due to health reason but I decided to go look for grass fed ground beef. Before going shopping, I peeled and cooked the potatoes. I chopped basil, thyme and rosemary for the burgers. I minced garlic and grated a shallot. Once I got the meat and rolls, I simply added the chopped ingredients and that was it- I was done. My husband had asked me to purchase the ready to grill patties but I can’t get myself to do that. I have no idea what is in there.. especially the meat quality. I prefer to make my own- especially since it doesn’t take very long at all.

We grilled the burgers and ate a delicious, simple summer meal… I can’t believe it is almost done. Make this recipe this weekend…

  • 1 pound ground grass fed beef
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme, chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 large shallot, grated
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Add the beef, basil, rosemary, thyme, garlic, shallot and salt. Mix well and form 4 to 5 patties. Keep aside.
Grill the burgers to the desired doneness.
