Saturday, June 16, 2018
Here is a gourmet Garlic Parmesan Burger with a creamy lemon spinach sauce over the top just bursting with flavors! If you're a spinach lover and love a good lemony cream sauce, you will love this burger. My favorite part is the smoky flavored burger, creamy buttery delicious sauce with wilted spinach on top. It really is out of this world delicious!

Check out the secret ingredients in the creamy sauce!



This Italian Style Garlic Parmesan Burger is juicy and has just the right spice, with a little natural heat from a special ingredient.




I love recreating toppings for burgers, this one was quite unusual and out of the ordinary but everyone loved them!





I have the perfect recipe for a side dish too! My Italian French Fries, so give them a try also.

You aren't crazy about spinach?



It really shouts Summer in colors too! I love eating a pretty burger!



You can substitute kale, escarole or any other greens you like if spinach isn't a favorite!

A different kind of sauce and burger!





I love to experiment with different flavors. This gourmet burger is just that. When I order a burger out, it's the same old same old. Not this one.




The flavors are enhanced by this special sauce. The burger itself it awesome but the sauce makes it over the top special!




If I could put this one on a scale from 1-10 it's a 10 all the way.




Yes I know what you're thinking, you may not be a lover of all these ingredients in it.




That's ok! You can substitute you favorite burger toppings in the sauce.

This sauce is basic. You can add mushrooms, onions, peppers or even bacon to make it the way your family likes their toppings.



We love fried peppers and sauteed mushrooms on our burgers with this delicious lemon cream sauce.

Hamburgers are great homemade!




You may have noticed, I like to grill my burgers in a iron skillet that has grids in it.




Well, grandma used only iron skillets and the burgers were always perfect.




I use an iron skillet on top of my gas grill. I leave them cooking until they get a good charred line on both sides.




That seems to be what locks in the juicy flavors in any burger I cook.









Toasted ciabatta rolls with butter and garlic on them or Tuscan garlic bread compliment this burger in flavors.

Lastly, when its dressed up with a fancy lemon spinach sauce, or all kinds of fancy condiments, it's officially a gourmet burger.

I love a good looking char on my burgers, these came perfect in grandma's cast iron skillet. The grids in the pan make them deep and very noticeable.

Seasoning in these Burgers is key!





When it comes to seasoning and everyone's taste less is more to me.




I like to start out with just little amount of seasoning and cook a tiny bit of hamburger, to taste it to see if it's just right!

Season to taste!



Tasting your own food is a big part of a successful recipe.




When I cook I never over salt, that is one thing anyone can put on after the food is cooked.




However in my opinion you can never have too much garlic or cheese.

The radishes are a peppery flavor that enhances the sauce.

Compliments the Burger perfectly!




The lemon sauce with a little peppery heat from the grated radish, gives the lemon sauce a delicious little pop of flavor.




The grated lemon peel, is perfect flavor booster that compliments the spinach.




If you are looking for a delicious creamy lemon sauce, this is the perfect topping for any meat.




The spinach lemon sauce would be awesome over any pasta dish or even rice!




I made my own ciabatta bread and it's a great addition to this gourmet version of a fabulous burger.

For the Creamy lemon spinach recipe: (refer to video clip in this blog post)

Melt the butter in the small pan on low heat.  Add the flour and seasonings to taste and stir until smooth.  (I taste this to see if it needs more garlic powder, salt and pepper)

Add the spinach leaves and cook just until wilted around 2 minutes.
