Really, this burger recipe is my take on the Juicy Lucy which is what a burger stuffed with cheese is commonly called. I’ve added a little heat with the inclusion of jalapenos and cayenne into the meat, opted for an English Muffin instead of the usual bun, and topped it off simply with a slice of ripe tomato. So, now it’s the Juicy Lucca, although she wasn’t allowed to have any because it has onions in it. Obviously, you can adjust this recipe so that it’s for as many people as you want, but in true Random Single Gal Recipe style — and considering it’s Independence Day — the following is if you’re just cooking for one. (Also, as I live in an apartment with no outdoor space, it’s also tailored to a stovetop griddle pan.) Happy 4th of July! Keep reading »

Do you really need anything else? (Maybe some Tom Selleck, a waterfall and a sandwich?) [Burgers and Nails] Keep reading »
We’re psyched for spring for a number of reasons; warm weather brings bare legs, iced coffee, peonies, and, perhaps most importantly, the desire to fire up the grill. (Though we live in New York City, we purposefully collect a few friends with backyards and/or roof decks for such things.) A simple burger may be acceptable to serve at a barbecue, but we’d rather, to quote Emeril Lagasse, take things up a notch by stuffing our burgers with cheese, mushrooms, and other yumminess. Too bad every time we’ve tried it’s been a horrible mess. Not anymore! Williams-Sonoma’s Stuffed Hamburger Press makes the whole process neat and simple. Now can they come up with a way to stuff hot dogs please?
