When your husband is sick you tend to make concessions to things you wouldn't normally agree to. At least that's what happens to me on the rare occasions when SP isn't feeling his best. Such was the case this weekend when we ran some errands on Saturday before hunkering down for the weekend. He wanted frozen hamburgers, specifically Bubba Burgers, and I was feeling bad for him so I obliged.
Last night we needed something easy for dinner so I decided to try the burgers:
The results were OK. Nothing stellar and nowhere near as good as homemade, but they were decent. In an effort to acknowledge Cinco de Mayo I used pepper Jack cheese and pickled jalapeno slices on the burgers, along with bacon and lettuce.
As for the fries, I decided to throw caution to the wind and deep-fry them. I just let them sit in the hot oil, bubbling away, for probably 20 minutes in an attempt to get them crispy. I think I succeeded, but I still didn't like the flavor the oil imparted (and I used vegetable oil, which shouldn't have much of a flavor at all). Maybe I need to look into peanut oil...
