Roast a couple of heads of garlic while you bake a chicken or casserole, then keep refrigerated for a week or so. Roasted garlic is excellent spread on Italian bread, mashed into guacamole, stirred into pasta sauce, etc...
1 lb lean beef
1/3 cup Roasted-Garlic
1 Tbsp fresh basil, minced (or 1 tsp dried)
1 tsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Fresh ground pepper
1 Med. Sweet Yellow Onion (Vidalias are the best) OR 2-3 good sized Shallots (or a mix of both)
1 Tbsp Butter (the real stuff)
2 tsp Extra Virigin Olive Oil
Salt and pepper
You will also need:
Goat Cheese (cut into 1/4 inch thick slices)
For burgers, mix all ingredents together gently, pat GENTLY into patties and grill as usual for burgers.
NOTE: Overworking the meat and mashing your patties down with make the meat tough, be gentle.
While meat is grilling: Heat butter and oil over Med. heat. Add onions and saute until golden and soft. Adjust heat as needed, decreasing so that onions don't brown or burn - you want them to slowly carmelize and turn a gentle golden color. Season with Kosher Salt and Fresh Ground Pepper.
Lightly toast buns, top with a patty, slice of goat cheese and large dollop of onion topping!
Fire up the Grill and go milk the Goat!
