A Damn Good Burger

Husbands favorite food hands down is a burger. I get pretty bored with them. However, for this one I made pretzel rolls, mustard-horseradish aioli, and green tomato relish. Truly one delicious burger. Add is some JoJo’s and you have a great meal.


Mustard Horse Radish Aioli

adapted from How Sweet it is

1 1/2 tablespoons dijon mustard
1 large egg yolk
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice (bottled can be substituted)
1/2 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons whole grain mustard
1 tablespoon horseradish
a pinch of salt + pepper

Whisk together dijon mustard, egg yolk and lemon juice in a large bowl until combined. Slowly stream in olive oil while continuously whisking until the mixture emulsifies and comes together completely. Whisk in whole grain mustard and horseradish, then taste and season with salt and pepper as desired.

JoJo Potatoes

adapted from Oh Sweet Basil

6 Russet Baking Potatoes, washed and sliced in wedges
1/2 Cup Flour
2 Teaspoons Season Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Pepper
1/8 Cup Butter, melted

Heat the oven to 450 degrees.
Line 2 baking sheets with foil. In a large ziploc add the flour, season salt and pepper.
Pre-heat the pan with the butter on it until melted.
Place the potatoes in the ziploc, a handful at a time, seal the bag and shake to evenly coat.Shake off excess flour. Line potatoes up, skin side down on the baking sheet, use a spoon to scoop extra butter and drizzle over potatoes and bake for 10-15 minutes, flipping over halfway through . Serve hot!

Green Tomato Relish

adapted from Food.com

1 quart chopped green tomato
1 large sweet white onion, chopped
2 jalapenos, chopped
2 tablespoons canning salt
1 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon mustard seed
1 teaspoon celery seed
1 cup vinegar
Combine tomatoes, onion, and pepper in large bowl. Sprinkle salt over vegetables, mix in,and let stand 1 hour.Drain vegetables. Combine drained vegetables, sugar, mustard seed, and celery seed in a large pot. Stir in vinegar and simmer for 20 minutes.

Pack hot relish into hot jars. Leave 1/4 inch headspace. Place canning lids on jars. Process half pints for 10 minutes in hot water bath.

To finish off, toast your pretzel bun with some butter, add a beautiful grilled patty with cheese, and add desired toppings.  The photo is of my husbands, who isn’t huge on veggies.  I added tomato and lettuce to mine.
