I seem to start all my Friday posts with the same disclaimer…mostly involving me  making only a small portion of the week’s recipe and advising you not to trust my family’s judgment of a dish as their palates are wacky.  This week I had my doubts as well so I made one quarter of the recipe…just one jazzed up burger for me.  When I make dishes with capers or sun-dried tomatoes, I see a little pile of the offending ingredients off to the side of hubby’s plate.  So making burgers with the addition of a flavorful puree of tarragon, parsley, capers, and sun-dried tomatoes would not appeal to the big guy.  But, let me tell you, these were incredible!  This is a recipe worth serving to company…even the simple onion relish was delicious.  Made from a minced onion cooked in water with a pat of butter, ground coriander, salt and pepper, I  didn’t have high expectations….but man, was I wrong.  This was one great burger.

I grilled these over fiery charcoal…and served mine with a juicy slice of a garden heirloom tomato and leaf lettuce.  I left out the cornichons in the burger mix…and the dill pickles for serving.  Best burger of the summer.  Thanks, Dorie!

You can find this recipe in Around My French Table or in the New York Times.

  1. “Best burger of the summer” – it must have been pretty good. Huge Those tomatoes are huge

  2. Grilling is the best Lizzy and I can see the outcome from the pics, like that browned colored burgers and perfect combo with all the rest.

  3. Great burger choice! I have told my husband that he does not have a very good palate-the food range that he likes is limited. This recipe will be for me!

  7. Beautiful burger and I don’t even eat them! Not sure anyone could resist this one!

  8. Ok, I don’t know how to pronounce it, but it sure does look good. And Lizzy, can you come grill for me? That is something I have yet to master – everything is charred on the outside and raw on the inside. I’ll have to work on that. Maybe next year I should do 365 Days of Grilling!

  9. They look absolutely amazing and exquisite, beautiful photos, hugs.

  10. My dear Lizzy, this looks like a great burger!! 🙂
