It’s summer- season to be hot, humid, and sticky. It also means barbecue season.
For those of you who are avid fans of burgers, what’s worse than a dry burger? I have been to countless pubs, restaurants, barbecues, etc and sometimes, your typical condiments like ketchup and relish just don’t cut it. You take a bite, it’s dry, it gets stuck in your throat, because there isn’t a sauce to bind all of it together.
So, what can you do?
Well, if you have time, it’s always great to make a sauce ahead of time, like a garlic aioli or your own home made BBQ sauce. But, if you want to get a little fancy but not waste a whole lot of time on making sauces, just fry up an over-easy egg. Throw it over your patty and grind some fresh cracked pepper on top. As soon as you bite in, the yolk will run down, making each bite more creamy and delicious.
Of course, it works with sandwiches as well.
I’m not much of a food photographer, but you get the idea. Give it a try!
