Burgers Make Everything Better

July 31, 2012

So a few weeks ago, I won a contest. I know! I never win anything! I decided to enter a giveaway from good ole’ Sweet Paul. It was for some fancy shmancy gourmet burger kits from D’Artagnan. I saw the winnings and knew that if there was ever a giveaway I was meant to win, it was this one. Logan and I are straight up carnivores. (He beats me by a mile!)

So I entered. And you can imagine my surprise when I received an email asking for my address because I had won! I WON. I called Logan immediately and we jumped for joy through the phone and he was just as excited as I was. I told the folks at D’Artagnan that I would post some pics of our glorious burgers. We decided to grill them up last night and our house smelled so delicious! Funny story – when I told Logan that I would be taking a few pics of the burgers, he said, “They want me to model for them?”

Here’s a small snapshot of the winnings. I chose the Mushroom Lover’s kit. Mostly because there was truffle butter. I LOVE truffle anything so this was a no-brainer. Lots o’ mushrooms (this isn’t even 1/4th of it all!). Lots o’ black truffle butter. Lots o’ Porcini powder. And 4 hefty buffalo burgers. That means we have two more to use this weekend. We would share, but we’re just not like that.

These were crazy juicy. Logan decided to add a little Havarti to his. And bacon. Did I mention we’re straight up carnivores?

Yeah, that’s right. I sautéed the mushrooms in a little truffle butter. These were seriously amazing. I don’t think we’ll ever be the same. We’re now buffalo snobs.

What do you think? Buffalo? Cow? Chicken? Vegetarian?

    We have fallen in love with buffalo ourselves!! We had no Idea bison was so lean, it’s even leaner then chicken!! Crazy right??! We have had bison spaghetti and steaks!! We have yet to grill up some burgers!! It will be the next thing for sure!! We’ve pretty much decided to do bison instead of ground beef bc its so much better for you!! We’ve been grilling this entire month instead of eating out once or twice a week ,and it has been a blast!! The burgers look so yummy!! Mouth watering for shizzle-

      Tempest! Thanks for stopping by! I did NOT know that Bison was so much healthier than a lot of other meat. We just ate it and it just melted in our mouths. So delicious! You’ll have to share some recipes with me. I need to build up my Bison repertoire. :)

    Wow – my guy would die over these – the buffalo, the bacon, the mushroomy butter! We’ve started making herbed butter to stuff the burgers with when he grills, but I’ll be it’s nowhere in the same neighborhood as truffle butter. Interestingly, I’m vegetarian, so my work ends with the butter. lol

      Lindsay, I did NOT know you were a vegetarian! Way to show some self-control, girl! The truffle butter is what made everything. I was ready to just drink that. :)

    I LOVE BURGERS!!!!!!!!!! I will always get them. TGI Fridays? The Jack Daniels burger please. My new favorite is at a local pizza place that does lots of other things called Red Elephant, but they have this bleu cheese burger with bacon and I about died when I ate it. THIS LOOKS DELISH!
