Fresh Pork…

One of my son’s had a hog butchered recently and I was privy to receive some of the meat. (After all I fed him for many years)  Just kidding…actually he wanted to test it out. I must admit I love the freshness of pork that has been farmed raised and straight to the plate.
Remember two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickle, onion, on a sesame seed bun? You know who I’m talking about….here is The Gourmet Farm Girl’s all natural quarter pound pork pattie, special seasoning, lettuce, cheese, grilled pickles and onions on a toasted sesame seed bun! Yum!

Sausage Burger with Grilled Pickles and Onions
By The Gourmet Farm Girl
1 pound fresh ground pork sausage
1 tablespoon of the Gourmet Farm Girl Seasoning (or your favorite)
1 medium onion sliced
1 fresh cucumber sliced
1 lb fresh mozzarella cheese slided
1 medium fresh tomato sliced
1 8 ct package sesame seeds buns
4 tablespoons soft butter
leaf lettuce

Preheat grill to 400 degrees

Slice all the vegetables and cheese; drizzle some extra virgin olive oil over the cucumbers, lightly salt and pepper; set aside. Place sliced onions on a sheet of aluminum foil, drizzle with oil; set aside.

Mix seasoning into the sausage; shape into 4 quarter pound patties and grill for 6-8 minutes on each side till cooked through. Place the sliced cucumbers and onions on the other side of the grill and cook at the same time. Place sliced cheese on top of each patties 1-2 minutes before completely cooked to allow time to melt.

While sausage patties and veggies are cooking; spread the soft butter onto both sides of the buns and broil till golden brown.

Now build your burger!
