Kale and Orange Salad

First thing’s first: another kale recipe! I wanted to make a kale salad because I still had some my my Spud box

Barbecue, Burger and Salad Month

Remove the rib of the kale and chop it up and then massage it with olive oil and salt.

Cut up three oranges into bite size segments and add to the kale. Slice up an avocado into chunks and add it in. To make the dressing just add one part vinegar of your choice, to one part olive oil of your choice, to one part citrus juice of your choice. I used champagne wine vinegar, blood orange olive oil and pineapple orange juice. Mix the salad and dressing all together well and sprinkle with some fresh pepper and black sesame seeds. This salad is a great side for the gorgonzola stuffed burgers coming up!

Fig Onion Marmalade

I bought some figs a while ago and wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with them. I also had a stout beer that has been sitting in my fridge forever and that’s when I thought of making a marmalade with onions, figs and stout!

Barbecue, Burger and Salad Month

This recipe is very simple and it turned out to be delicious; also it’s amazing on the gorgonzola stuffed burgers!

Heat up a cast iron skillet with some olive oil over a Coleman stove (or on your normal kitchen stove; it’s too hot in my house to cook!) Slice the onions thin and chop up the figs into chunks. Add the onions and figs to the hot cast iron skillet. Pour in 1/2 cup of stout beer and add 1/4 cup of brown sugar. Stir well.

Sprinkle some salt and pepper and let simmer until everything reduces, about 30 minutes. Set aside and let cool and start the gorgonzola stuffed burgers.

Gorgonzola Stuffed Burger

A good burger is all about the juiciness of the meat, the toppings and the cheese; so when I was thinking about making this gorgonzola stuffed burger I knew that I wanted top quality meat, some good cheese and a great marmalade to make it epic. 

To make the patties start out with lean ground sirloin beef and add in the spices and herbs, Worcestershire sauce, an egg and bread crumbs, and then mix well.

Roll the meat mixture into small balls, about 2 inches in diameter and then flatten them into 8 patties. Place slices of  gorgonzola cheese on one patty and then top with a second patty. Mend the sides together to ensure the cheese is sealed well inside so it doesn’t spill out when grilling.

Put the gorgonzola stuffed burgers on a preheated grill and grill for about 10 – 12 minutes on each side, until the juices run clear.

Once cooked, top with more cheese and the onion fig marmalade with a side of kale salad and enjoy!!

    • I love stuffing my burgers, especially with really strong cheese – the burger and condiments tone down the strong cheese when stuffed! 🙂

  1. I’m so happy seeing this post,we have two bbq parties to attend where I’m in charge of salad 🙂 The burgers look delish too. Great recipes.

    • Thanks Byron! I completely agree! A good burger needs to be messy! And yeah, my first round up selection! Was exciting! 🙂

    • Yeah it does! I actually don’t like really strong cheese on it’s own, but with the onion fig marmalade, and stuffed in a burger, it’s awesome! Thanks for reading!
