The Freshman Cook: Gourmet Burger & Dog Bar

Please Rate this Recipe

 This weeks entree reminds me of where I grew up. We are talking Ohio, a small town, in the country, 45 minutes from a city. It was a great place to grow up. Summer days were filled with playing in the woods, swimming, and whiffle ball. Summer nights were the best. It didn’t get dark until 9:30, and we spent every night that we could sleeping outside, playing hide and seek, and if we were lucky, getting dinner right from the grill. It was always hamburgers and hot dogs, with brats thrown in the mix if we were having company.  There is nothing like the smell of dinner cooking on the grill. I love when food evokes such warm, wonderful memories! Don’t you?
