Burger with the Garden
Ingredients
  • 2  tablespoons  olive oil
  • 2  tablespoons  red wine vinegar
  • 1  teaspoon  snipped fresh thyme
  • 1/4  teaspoon  cracked black pepper
  • 1  pound  90% lean ground beef
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/4  teaspoon  pepper
  • 2  medium yellow summer squash, cut lengthwise into 1/4- to 1/2-inch thick slices
  • 2 - 4  ounces  blue cheese, cut in wedges
  • 4  hamburger buns, split and toasted
  •  Arugula or lettuce
  •  Tomato slices (optional)
  •  Red onion slices (optional)
  •  Pickle slices (optional)
Directions

1. For the dressing, in a screw-top jar combine olive oil, vinegar, thyme, and pepper. Cover and shake well. Set aside.

2. In a large bowl combine ground beef, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper. Shape ground beef into four 3/4-inch-thick patties. Brush squash slices with some of the dressing mixture. Set remaining dressing aside.

3. For a charcoal grill, grill patties on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 14 to 18 minutes or until meat is done (160 degrees F), turning once halfway through grilling. Place squash slices along side beef patties. Cook over medium coals for 7 to 10 minutes or until tender, turning once. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place patties on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as above.)

4. To serve transfer cooked beef patties to buns. Drizzle cut side of bun tops with remaining dressing. Top burgers with arugula, squash, blue cheese, tomato, red onion, and pickle slices. Makes 4 servings.
