You guys! The past six days were perfect. I promise I’ll give you a better recap of our long weekend at Ocean Isle Beach tomorrow. But today, today I have a burger. (Yep! You can cross it off the list.)
If you know Big Guy and I at all, you know that we went down to the beach with a menu in hand. We stopped in Wilmington on the way to the beach last Thursday and gathered all the necessary ingredients. Burgers just so happened to be on the menu on Saturday night.
And with the burger I have homemade hamburger buns.
These buns are ready in 40-minutes and don’t require any time to rise. Winning. The buns turned out a little more dense than I would have liked but they were delicious. I am certain it was the baker and not the recipe to blame so I’ll try for a little fluffier buns next time.
The burger buns were stuffed with incredible ingredients.
Local raised beef (from our SoCo delivery)
Crispy fried mozzarella (that was oh-so-melty and delicious inside)
Herbaceous basil (that added just the right amount of freshness)
Juicy, ripe grilled peaches (that added a hint of sweetness that I crave with savory burgers)
Balsamic drizzle (tangy and delicious)
On the side, grilled corn on the cob with a compound butter of simply softened butter and basil.
This burger is what summer is all about.
The night was made complete with this view.
