Something a little different

romanburger3One of my favorite things to photograph, ever since I first got my DSLR, has been food. On a consistent, day to day basis, I probably take more photos of food items than I photograph anything else. So I thought I’d share a recent food photo, and a recipe to go along with it!

Last week, I tried a “Roman” Burger from Acme Burgerhaus in San Francisco. The flavors were unlike anything I’ve ever had in a burger. It was so good, I tried my hand at replicating the burger and I think they came out great! The trick really is to use fresh ground beef, instead of frozen or pre-packaged ground beef. The fresher the better.

    The Roman Burger (Recipe for 2)
    Half pound of freshly ground beef
    1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
    2 minced garlic cloves
    2 tbsp of chopped sun dried tomatoes
    2 tbsp chopped onion
    1 tbsp of oregano
    Dash of salt and freshly ground black pepper

    Mix everything together and then form into patties. Cook on a grill (I used a cast iron grill on the stove top) for about 3 minutes on each side, top with cheddar cheese, arugula, and some grilled red onions, maybe a little mayo or ketchup and you’re all set!

Trust me, this burger is DELICIOUS. Not sure if I’ll ever go back to cooking regular burgers after having made this one. Enjoy!
