Surf and Turf Burger

My husband loves a good burger and his favourite dishes (when not having burgers) always involve some kind of seafood. So why not combine the two? I did just that and came up with what is now his favourite burger! Give this one a try - it's really good!

  1. I like this - but then, cholesterol isn't a problem for me.

    Aside: My GOOD cholesterol is too low. My Doc says there are only two things that will affect it - Exercise and Alcohol. I know what you are thinking, but I already have the Alcohol part covered, so my options are kinda slim.

  2. This one does pack that cholesterol punch. God, I hate getting to an age where we have to think about these things!

    I'm inclined to exercise today, if I could just put this vodka down...


  3. Ha! I don't know which I like better, this recipe or your comment about the vodka! LOL

  4. Seriously.



    I don't care if they are the little ones. Gross.

    It could be worse. It could be the big ones. I will happily sit and catch Dungeness all day long. Won't eat'em. Don't even get me started on the foulness that is lobster. ;p

    Mr. Fairy would probably love these though. :D

  5. I'll cook em for him then!

  6. Divah, you KNOW I'm getting into the vodka tonight - tomato style! I might just have to blog about it toorrow ;)
