-Because I am a red blooded American, and because it was Memorial Day, I had no choice but to make massive patties of ground up meat and put them over a fire until they glistened with grease.  I was working with a brand new grill, and the burgers did end up a bit overdone for my tastes, but even with a lot of the juice cooked off these burgers ended up being fairly juicy.  The massive patties I made cooked to a respectable size, though the tiny little girly-man patties I made at the suggestion of my friends ended up being even more tiny and girly when put on the grill.  As far as the recipe, I wish I could say that the spices and lamb made a distinctive difference in the taste, but besides being a juicy burger with a great consistency I don’t know that anyone noticed what kind of seasoning I used.  The garlic cheddar, jalapenos and guacamole is really what ended up receiving the most compliments and adding the most to the meal.  This may not have been an out-of-the-park-during-our-nation’s-pastime kind of cooking attempt, but everyone seemed fairly pleased and I’ve learned a bit about making a good grillin’ burger.  I’m chalking this one up as Bald Eagle nodding with approval pretty good.
