Grilled Pork Burgers From Sunday Suppers at Lucques, one of the all time favorite CBC books.

It is still summer here in Houston and I love the Sunday Suppers at Lucques by Suzanne Goin cook book. What do those things have in common? Last night's dinner of course. I flipped to the summer section of this Charm City Cook Book Club book and made most of this recipe. I didn't notice the Romesco until I had already made the burgers, but they were memorable and tasty even without it. The recipe is extensive if you do the whole thing but the burgers are amazing and can be mixed in advance. The coleslaw recipe that comes after it is easy and a great complement. First you make a shallot, garlic, thyme, cumin, and dried chili mixture. Then you have to stave off the young ones who don't understand that cooking takes more than the 30 seconds since they decided they were hungry to make.
Next mix together the pork, bacon, chorizo (I had turkey not pork), parsley, shallot mixture, and salt & pepper.
Let the mixture "meld" overnight.
Then grill the burgers, I made slider size, top with Manchego cheese, a buttered grilled then mayo'd bun, and a few pieces of arugula.
They taste amazing eaten properly or torn apart and stuffed in your mouth. Enjoy!
And go buy the book...I am not giving you this recipe. Everything I have made out of this book has been wonderful.
