Hamburgers and Garlic Potatoes

I started this week I decided to write a menu for dinner the whole week so everyone would know what was for dinner and not go off and do their own thing. Tonight was something easy but really yummy, hamburgers and potatoes. I hope you enjoy the recipes!


Cutting Board
Grill or Grill pan
Saute Pan
Mixing Bowl
Medium Microwavable Bowl

Ingredients for Hamburgers:

1lb Ground Beef
1 Egg
4 Crushed Saltine Crackers
1tsp Garlic Powder
1tsp Black Pepper


Heat Grill or Grill pan to a medium high heat with it oiled. In a mixing bowl combine all ingredients and mix until combined. Separate the meat into 4 equal sections and shape into patties, leaving a dent in the center of the patty.

Grill for 5 to 7 minutes on each side. Only flip once. Once flipped if you want to add cheese then add now and the heat from the meat will melt the cheese as it finishes cooking. Then I place them in a warm oven until ready for service.

Ingredients for Garlic Potatoes:

4 or 5 Small Potatoes(Yukon gold or fingerling)
2Tbs Butter
1Tbs Canola Oil
3 Garlic Cloves, diced
3 Green Onions, diced
1tsp Black Pepper
1tsp Garlic Salt
1tsp Italion Seasoning
1tsp Crushed Rosemary
1/4 C Water


Dice the potatoes into same sizes, you can peel the potatoes or leave it on. Place all the potatoes into a microwable bowl with the water in it. Microwave the potatoes for 5 to 6 minutes or until soft. While potatoes microwave dice the green onion and garlic and add to a saute pan with the canola oil on medium heat. Once potatoes are done add the seasonings to the garlic and onions then add the potatoes and stir until combined. Cook for 5 minutes then add the butter, stir until melted and combined.

Then enjoy your meal!
