my kind of holiday- national hamburger month

Did you know that May is National Hamburger Month?! I figured that sounded like a holiday worth celebrating, so, I'm going to try to eat a hamburger a day for the month of May. Well, I am going to try to eat a ground meat patty with lettuce and tomato every day! I don't think I can stick to an all-beef regimen. Hopefully, this will teach me to perfect my burger-making just in time for the summer.
We started last night with mini prime cheeseburgers at Morton's happy hour, my biggest craving of the moment. They was excellent as usual, complete with tiny lettuce medallions. Presentation is definitely key there.
And this morning, I made my first burger. (Yes, a burger for breakfast. Yes, I'm super hardcore.)

Ground buffalo burger with onions, cilantro, tomato juice, and cayenne pepper, pan-fried with a touch of olive oil. (Buffalo is super lean, so I didn't want it to burn before it cooked to a nice medium-rare.)
My kitchen, DTLA, CA., 7:25am, May 2, 2009.
Yum! It was super tasty, with just the right amount of kick. Let's see if I can make it through the month.


  1. Does the true definition of "hamburger" mean the patty is required to be beef?

  2. I'm not much of a rule-follower, so I've decided on (ham)burgers. (Go with me on this one.) :)
