Retro Dinner: Bacon Cheeseburger with Red Onion Relish.
Actually, according to the book I used, this burger is not, in fact, for dinner.
No. This very filling burger is listed as a Man-size Snack.
Sure...because in the fifties and early sixties, our ancestors (read: my grandparents and their friends) were burning in the sun, toiling the fields.
Bacon Cheeseburger with Red Onion Relish
A basic burger (Morningstar Farms Grillers for Alex and me), topped with cheese, bacon, and a relish comprised of red onions, red chili, brown sugar, thyme, red wine vinegar and butter.
I wasn't nuts about topping mine with onions...despite how lovely and caramelized they were, had a few slices of avocado instead...
Pretty simple, and very classic. And filling enough that Matt only barely finished it!
Blog Party #6, Retro Party, is going on right now!. And while technically you should have your entries in already? There is an unofficial 'grace period'...through experience, I've found a few submissions in my in-box as late as this afternoon.
What does this mean for you?
There's still time to join the party! See the above link for all the information, then get those 40's - 60's themed appetizers and drinks to me no later than noon (US, Eastern) tomorrow.
And see you at the party!
