I had chocolate on the brain today. Not just chocolate, as in candy or cake, but chocolate buttercream frosting. I think that all the stress of the past few days is causing this craving. About 4:00 this afternoon I wanted some chocolate frosting, the kind made with butter, cocoa, and powdered sugar. I wanted to eat it by the spoonful from a very big bowl. The Dove Promises I had in my desk drawer for emergencies weren’t even appetizing. Have you ever had a day like that? Or a craving like that?
I never got the frosting . I still want it. But instead of chocolate frosting, I had some beef. A big beef burger. I had that craving, too, and satisfied it with this wonderful burger.
3/4 lb. lean ground beef
2/3 c shredded smoked gouda
1 t Montreal Steak Seasoning
1/2 t Wrights Liquid Smoke Seasoning
Mix all ingredients and shape into two large burgers. (Or you could make smaller burgers, but I was having a beef craving) Grill until done. Serves 2 or 3.
