Bistro Burgers & Yellow bean, sugar snap and radish salad

(originally made 7/2011)

I took a risk with this one, Tim can be sort of whiny if I mess with burgers too much.  He likes American Cheese and bacon and ketchup.     These just sounded so good!    I did make a few switches- I used dried onion instead of dicing one up, and I used dried tarragon instead of fresh.     I loved the flavor of these!   I topped Jake and Tim's with some provolone.     Thank you so much Nancy, for breaking us out of our boring burger rut!    :)

I served them with a quick salad of yellow bean, sugar snaps and radishes.  I was inspired by this blog,    Instead of the lemon dill dressing, I drizzled it with a bit of honey and then sprinkled it with dried tarragon, kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper.     delicious, and definitely will be repeated.

  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
  1              pound  ground beef
     1/3           cup  garlic flavored croutons -- crushed
     1/4           cup  onion -- chopped, used dried
  2        tablespoons  Dijon mustard
  2        tablespoons  fresh tarragon -- chopped, used dried
  3             cloves  garlic -- minced, used jarred
                        salt and pepper to taste
  4                     English muffins -- split
  4             slices  tomato
  4                     leaves lettuce

Combine croutons, onion, mustard, tarragon, salt and pepper. Add in ground beef and mix just enough to spread the mixture through the meat. Don't overwork the meat. Divide into 4 equal parts and shape into burger patties. Preheat grill. When the grill is as hot as it will go place the patties on the grate and close the lid. Wait one minute and turn. Close lid. Continue grilling for one more minute or until done. Place patties on English muffins and add tomato slices and lettuce. Finish off as desired.
