Tasty Tuesday!

Last weekend for our usual Date Night In I made a delish meal that both Matt and I LOVED! I got the recipe from Cooking Light Magazine and I just tweaked it a bit and it turned out perfect! This is the perfect meal to break in your patio and grill for Spring......

Italian Meatball Burgers!

I used kaiser burger buns I got in the bakery and right before I served everything up I toasted them in the oven under the broiler for a few minutes!
 I wanted to add caramelized onions to our burger toppings and they hit the spot! Here is how to make them......
Quick Caramelized Onions!
1 large yellow onion cut into strips
2 Tablespoons EVOO
Salt & Pepper
1 teaspoon sugar
* Place all ingredients in pan over low heat and slowly cook/caramelize for about 30 minutes! The key is low heat or they will just brown then burn!
 Here is what you need for the Italian Meatball Patties and it makes 4:

8 ounces sweet turkey Italian sausage
1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
2 teaspoons chopped fresh oregano
1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds, crushed
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1 pound ground sirloin 
1 Can Marinara or Pizza Sauce: Use 2 Tablespoons of this in mixture set rest aside!
** Mix all ingredients and form into 4 patties to be grilled!
*** Right before Matt took them off the grill we placed slices of Provolone cheese on each one!
 Build Your Burger!
* Patties with Cheese
* Then heat the rest of your Marinara/Pizza sauce and top each burger with a large spoonful!
* Next comes your caramelized onions
* Lastly, place a few large basil leaves on top and then top it off with your bun!
 I served ours with a caesar salad and some red wine, it was so yummy! And of course I couldn't serve just any dessert but I needed an Italian dessert so I made a homemade cheesecake that day!
So friends.... Make this today!!! You'll thank me!
