Garlic Thyme Burgers with Grilled Tomato

(originally made 6/2010)

Oh, how I love summer.   Simple but good lunches cooked outside, easy clean up.  Can't rave enough about my square burger press, it turns out nice even burgers every time.    I've made a lot of burgers, but something about the grilled tomato on this one struck me.   I also grilled up a nice thick slice of onion at the same time.      Overall I was pleased with it, though I didn't get the nice dark grill marks they did on the website.
