Burgers with Roasted Sweet Pepper, Portobello Slices, Bacon, and Slices of Tomato & Onion

Tuesday was my husband’s birthday, and I made him burgers on the grill for supper, because he loves burgers.  They turned out well, and he claimed his was the best burger he’d ever had.  😀  Meanwhile I’m not much of a burger lover, so I tried using toppings to make up for the beef on a bun thing.

I cut thin slices of a white onion and tomato slices leaving them raw, of course.  The sliced portobellos were grilled along with two big, sweet, long red peppers, a couple of thick cut bacon slices, a serrano pepper, and the burgers.  Now that I’ve had grilled bacon I resolve to never cook it inside again.  Not only was it tastier, but no mess or smell inside!  Woot.

Anyway, I assembled the burgers with bun, patty, mushrooms, [serrano on mine] peppers, bacon, then the onion, tomato, and top of the bun.  The patties were only sprinkled with pepper, salt, and MSG before grilling.  It was a quick and easy meal with not much to clean up, so I’ll surely make these again.

I apologise for not writing for so many days until now.  We were travelling a lot, and I haven’t felt so well either.  Driving, cooking, and cleaning are about all I’ve done before sleep, and I haven’t had anything to write about even if I’d had the energy.  Today I woke up finally feeling rested, so hopefully I’m back on track.  🙂

Today is to be the warmest and sunniest day yet of 2015.  We aren’t sure what we’ll do with it yet since friends are coming to visit, but you can bet we’ll be outside.  😉  I hope you readers are having some gorgeous weather to enjoy today too.
