Are you shaking your head, thinking 'What the heck, Nicole? You already posted today! What are you doing spamming my feed with MORE Gypsy in Jasper!?'
Please let me explain before you run off in frustration. You see, the Ladies of the Mountains schedule got a little wonky awhile back so now we're on the same days as What to Wear, so rather than choosing one or the other, I've chosen to do both! I hope you enjoy this double whammy today, and if not, feel free to berate me in the comments. Anyway, back to the purpose of this post. This week we're talking about our favourite BBQ or camping recipes. For me, it's definitely a delicious homemade burger. There is honestly nothing better than a big thick patty full of garlic and onion thrown on the grill. Om nom nom!
As the lady who generally steers clear of actually cooking on the grill, either on the patio or the fire pit, I can't give many pointers. All I can say is the more garlic and onion the better and NEVER skimp on the cheese. Oh! And be adventurous with cheese. Burgers with brie are my FAVOURITE thing in the world. I also dig guacemole and grilled red peppers as additions. And lots of pickles. Oh, and it doesn't hurt if it's all topped off with homemade Big Mac sauce (mayo, thousand island dressing, relish, paprika and garlic powder). YUM! Basically, GO NUTS and be creative. There is nothing worse than going to a backyard BBQ or out camping and eating those cardboard-style store bought burgers with nothing but ketchup and mustard. A burger needs to be juicy and full of extra toppings that run down your hands as you eat it. It's summer, after all—you'll work those extra calories off while you're hiking, biking, camping and exploring. There's no reason to hold back. Indulge!
