Super Bowl Burger #recipe + book #giveaway from author @DarylWoodGerber



SUPER BOWL SUNDAY IS COMING!

From Daryl aka Avery:  It's just a few days until Super Bowl Sunday! Who will be watching? Do you watch for the commercials or the game or the half time show? 

I love the commercials with the Clydesdales and the Dalmatian. I hope they do better this year. Last year's were sort of a bust, don't you think? But the commercials that have a message, the ones where you say, "Aww," afterward, are great!

Or how about the ones where you laugh out loud? Will anyone forget the young boy dressed as Darth Vader trying to use the force to start his parents' car? If you don't recall, the parents, from the kitchen, click on the car. The kid leaps in the air he is so shocked! It's hysterical! 

However, no matter what,  on Super Bowl Sunday, I go for the food. Normally, I don't eat a lot of salty food.  But for Super Bowl, absolutely!  Nachos, chips, guacamole, wings. I'll even splurge and have a gluten-free beer.

And burgers. I love to barbecue, and though I know the country might be under snow, you can still do a great burger inside!

Today, I'm going to share an easy recipe for a cheddar cheese burger. Why with cheese?

Well, many of you know that I write the Cheese Shop Mysteries (as Avery James). Although there won't be any new books in the series (BIG SIGH), there are seven and I'm proud of them. So to celebrate the month that the Cheese Shop Mysteries used to come out - February - I'm offering a giveaway today. See below!

Cheddar Cheese Burger

(one serving)
6-8 ounces lean hamburger meat
1 ounce shredded Cheddar cheese (about ¼ cup)
1-2 teaspoons mixed herbs (I used basil, rosemary, thyme)
1-2 tablespoons chopped yellow onion (if desired)

Preheat the broiler.

In a medium bowl, mix the hamburger, cheese, herbs, and onions (if desired). On a chopping board, form the burger into a patty.

Set the burger on an oven-safe broil pan. Broil the burger to your liking. I like 3-4 minutes a side for medium rare; 5-6 minutes a side for medium.

Serve with a hearty red wine. A zinfandel will really match with the spicy flavors of the cheese without dominating.



Giveaway



I'm offering one commenter a choice of my Cheese Shop Mysteries. Just tell me what you enjoy about the Super Bowl. And if you don't watch it, that's okay. Tell me what you like about cheese!  Leave your email so I can contact you if you win. It can be a cryptic email. I'm a mystery author. I'll figure it out. I'll pick a winner before next week!

Savor the mystery!

  2. What I like about cheese = the versatility of it! So many flavors available; can make it sweet or savory; great addition to almost any meal, snack, recipe, etc. EMS591@aol.com

  5. I am not a Super Bowl fan but the commercials are fun. Cheese....its so versatile and adds so much flavor to meat and vegetables. Who can resist a grilled cheese sandwich? dbahn(at)iw(dot)net
