The meat items that have been on sale around us recently have been chicken thighs and drumsticks for about $.77 a pound and ground beef for $1.99 a pound. For our area those REALLY good prices. You will notice quite a few of my recipes have had one or the other items in them lately. I shop sales for meat and staples. I can always figure out something new to do with the meat so that the kids don’t look at me with the face that says, “Really Mom? Chicken for a fourth day in a row?”
One thing we had not had much of recently was a hamburger. Seriously, we have a grill we need to cook out more. Grilled hamburgers can be so versatile just like chicken. How many different ways can you top a hamburger? I found this burger on Cheese and Burger Society page of the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board (click for link to page).
This was super yummy! The onions and apples mixed really well together and gave the burger a great flavor. The whole grain mustard added a bit of tang to the burger. We didn’t have any bacon so we left that off and it was still delicious. If we have some bacon next time we make these (and there will be a next time) we will add it.
We served this with a side of corn on the cob and baked beans for a real picnic dinner!
