Wine Varietal: Pinot Noir
Whenever I make meatloaf for dinner I have the leftovers in a sandwich the next day and that inspired me to try making it into an actual hamburger on it’s own.
1.5 lbs 80% lean ground beef
0.5 lbs ground pork
1 cup of minced white onion
2 cloves of minced garlic
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1/4 cup freshly chopped cilantro
1 large egg
1 cup mixed frozen vegetables, thawed (peas, carrots, corn or green beans combo)
1/2 tablespoon of salt
1/2 tablespoon of freshly ground pepper
1 tablespoon of Worcestershire Sauce
6 traditional hamburger buns
1 4oz can of tomato sauce
1/2 tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
1 tablespoon of red wine
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
6 large eggs
1 small red onion sliced
For the patties:
Combine the onion and garlic in a grill safe pan with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and saute lightly, set aside to cool, about 5 minutes.
Then combine the remaining pattie ingredients in a large glass bowl and add the the onion mixture; mix until well combined and create 6 meatloaf patties. Grill on medium high until medium done.
For the sauce:
Pour tomato sauce in a small grill safe pot, add remaining ingredients and simmer for about 10 minutes on the back side of the gas grill or on a side burner if your grill is equipped with it.
For the additional topping:
crack open eggs as many as will fit on a grill safe pan and fry hard. Break the yolk with a spatula before flipping to other side.
Place a meatloaf pattie on the bottom half of the bun, top with sliced red onions, fried egg and a tablespoon of the tomato sauce and the other half of the bun.
