Gnarly Cali Combo Burgers

Posted by Caveman Cooking on June 17, 2010

Gnarly Cali Combo Burger
Mission: Take Poppa Mike’s Legendary Gnarly Burgers to the next level.
Mission Status: Accomplished!

INGREDIENTS

1 Poppa Mike’s Legendary Gnarly Burger Patty
1 Hot Dog (any brand is fine … as long as it’s Hebrew National)
1 Hamburger Bun
1 Slice Cheese
1 Slice Fresh Tomato
1 Slice Sweet Onion
1/4 Avocado, sliced

RECIPE

Prepare one Poppa Mike’s Legendary Gnarly Burger patty.

The great thing about these burgers is that if you make too many, and if you aren’t having a dozen hungry people over you will make too many, you can freeze them and throw them directly onto the grill another time. Hence, the use of some hockey-puck-hard burgers here.
Frozen Burgers

Throw burger onto the grill and cook as usual. Just before you flip your burger, put the hot dog on the grill.
Burgers & Dogs On The Grill

Just before the hot dog is completely done, butterfly-cut it lengthwise. Place onto grill, center-side down.
Butterfly-cutting Hot Dog

Place cheese onto burger (any type is fine, but there is something to be said about the flavor combo the good old American slice gives this burger). As cheese begins to melt, cut dog in half crosswise. Place hot dog halves side by side on top of cheese and leave on grill until cheese is sufficiently melted.
Dog On Top Of Burger

Place combo burger onto bun prepared with avocado, tomato, and onion slices. Add condiments to taste.

SIDE NOTE: Chances are, when you are having a BBQ with burgers and dogs, you are going to have, at least, one of each. So, why not combine them into one great sandwich? You won’t miss the extra bun, and the flavor combination will make you wonder why you haven’t tried this before. The only downside is that everyone who is having a plain burger or dog will want a bite!

Prep Time = 15 minutes
Cook Time = 10-12 minutes
Serves 1

Marty’s Burgers

Posted by Caveman Cooking on December 10, 2009

If you’ve lived in or visited Southern California you’ve probably heard of or even patronized an Original Tommy’s Burgers … and, hopefully, experienced a late night Chili Burger run to THE original location at Beverly and Rampart near downtown LA. It’s definitely worth trying in order to get a taste of some legendary street food, and great people watching, in the City of Angels.
But, if you are in search of the BEST Chili Burger in town, then you have to head to West LA, before 6 pm, and order up a Double Chili Cheese Burger from Marty’s Burgers.

Poppa Mike’s Legendary Gnarly Burgers

Posted by Caveman Cooking on December 7, 2009


These burgers are so truly “Gnarly” that you have to pronounce the “G” when you say the word!

INGREDIENTS

1lb. Ground Beef
1lb. Ground Lamb
1lb. Ground Turkey
2 Tbsp. Dried Chopped Onion
1.5 Tbsp. Worchester Sauce
1.5 Tbsp. Teriyaki Sauce
1/2 Tbsp. World Spice Merchants “Montreal Steak Spice* (UPDATE: now referred to as “Le Quebecois Steak Spice“)
1 tsp. World Spice Merchants “Chipotle Chili Powder”
2 tsp. Finely Chopped Garlic
1/4 tsp. Ground Pepper

RECIPE

Combine all ingredients in large bowl.

Knead meat mixture and other ingredients together, mixing very well. Grab baseball sized handfulls of mixture and form into patties.

Place patties onto sheets of wax paper. It keeps the burgers from sticking together. Plus, it makes freezing any leftover burgers a breeze.

Just add some cheese, and BBQ or griddle cook as you please. Enjoy!

HINT: My Grandfather, who taught me this recipe, used to use ground Veal. I just don’t do the Veal thing, so I substitute the Turkey instead. Ground Pork can be used, too.
HINT #2: If you freeze these, just throw them straight onto the grill when you’re ready to chow ’em down – no defrosting necessary.

*I highly recommend you get this from World Spice Merchants. Their version the Montreal seasoning is the best I have ever used. Plus, it has very little salt, especially compared to most of the commercial versions available.

Prep Time = 15 minutes
Cook Time = 10-12 minutes
Makes 12 Burgers
