Warm weather is finally upon us. It’s about time! Though our forecast still seems full of unpredictable possible T-storms, we are starting to have more and more opportunites to fire up the grill. In the summer there are not many things I enjoy more than preparing a great meal on the grill with some sort of cold beverage in hand. Since I try to keep our menus varied and interesting rather than making the same old same old every week, I’m always on the lookout for a good grilling recipe. When I saw the concept for Marsala burgers, I was thrilled. A dish that combines a favorite summer activity (grilling) with the flavors of one of my all-time favorite dishes (chicken Marsala) – brilliant! I want to hug the person who dreamed these up…and this fall I will get to, when I finally meet my blogging friend Tara in person. Wahoo!
In our home, these burgers were born of necessity one evening when we ended up having unexpected company for dinner. I had burger patties in the freezer, but I wanted something a bit more exciting than a traditional burger that night. Thankfully I had everything on hand to whip up the Marsala topping. I baked up some burger buns, threw together a quick salad and we had an awesome meal that was greatly enjoyed by all. I think this concept would work equally well with the patties from the chicken Parmesan burgers, and I may try that next time. Whatever way you prefer, definitely give these a whirl next time you are looking to put a spin on a good old fashioned burger.
