I don't know how you were raised, but growing up the grill was always my Dad's domain. So, I have always had my husband be in charge of the grill and anything BBQ. Seriously, I din't even know how to light the thing. Well, the other day (with some instruction from the hubby) I jumped right in and went for it. My chicken turned out excellent. So today I tried burgers. The triplets have never been a huge fan of hamburgers, they are more chicken lovers like mommy. But, I am really trying to get them to eat more protien. I think part of the burger problem was size. Well, I ran across "slider sized buns" at the store and an idea was born.
"Abby's Silly Sliders"
1 lb of beef (i used 8% fat Laura's Lean)
1/2 a package of onion soup mix
Mix and form into small burgers. 1lb of meat yielded me 9 burgers. Which worked out nicely becasue each triplet had 1, Mommy had 2, and Daddy had 3.Toss on a heated grill on Medium and cook for about 5 minutes on each side. I added a quarter piece of cheese to some of them.
Biscuit (baby A) is wondering why his bun is smiling back at him. He had mostly bun and about 1/2 his burger
Muffin (baby B) liked his burger but was rather confused by the how to eat the watermelon. I usually cut it up for them, but thought we should try wedges. He REALLY wanted to eat the rind.
