|Because I was peeling grapes all day, I didn't get any great photos. However, the burger was great with my roasted veggies! Yum!|
French Friday is here again and this week we are asked to make hamburgers...What? French hamburgers? Yes! Dories' friend Helene has a cafe in Paris's renovated Salle Pleyel concert hall, and she decided to put a hamburger on her menu. This is not your typical American hamburger, not that there is anything wrong with our American hamburger. I love hamburgers. When I choose to go meatless for a few days, the thing I crave most is a hamburger.
Yesterday I was making concord grape jam. A very time consuming job! You have to slip the skins off of every grape! I guess it could be called occupational therapy. So I was thrilled to make the hamburgers for dinner. Something that wasn't going to impact my day with hours of prep. I made the onion marmalade early in the day, so that when dinner time rolled around, I only had to mix the meat and grill. That's pretty much how it went. I added the sun-dried tomatoes, cornichons, capers, tarragon and parsley to my food processor. Mixed it into the beef and made my burgers. My husband grilled them...and I forgot the cheese! We really enjoyed these burgers and because my husband is on South Beach this week, it was a great choice! These hamburgers are really tasty with plenty of flavors going on and they all go quite well together!

If you would like to make these burgers they can be found in Dorie Greenspan's cookbook "Around My French Table" or you can find it here at the New York Times.
