Bloody-Mary Burgers and Spicy Garlic-Roasted Broccoli

Hubby made Bloody-Mary Burgers and Spicy Garlic-Roasted Broccoli for supper last night.  These were awesome.  Unfortunately he did not take any pictures while he was making it but here is the recipe.

You will need:

  • 1/4 c. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 T chilipowder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 head broccoli, cut into thin, long spears
  • 2 celery ribs, chopped
  • 1/2 pint grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 c. fresh parsley chopped
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 3 T mayo
  • 2 pounds ground sirloin
  • 2 T prepared horseradish
  • 1 1/2 t celery salt
  • 2 T worcestershire sauce
  • 2 t hot sauce

Preheat oven to 425°

Broccoli:  Place olive oil, garlic, chili powder and a little salt and pepper in the bottom of a large bowl and add the broccoli spears.  Toss to coat the broccoli evenly, then transfer to a large nonstick baking sheet.  Roast the broccoli until the ends are crisp and brown and the stalks are tender, 17 to 20 minutes.

Burger Topping:  In a bowl combine the chopped celery and the grape tomato halves with the dill, parsley, lime juice, and mayonnaise.  Use the back of a fork to smash up the tomatoes while you incorporate them into the sauce.

Burger:  In a bowl combine the sirloin, horseradish (we left out), celery salt, worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, and a little pepper.  Mix thoroughly.  Divid the meat into 4 equal portions.  Form each portion into a large, 1-inch-thick patty.  Cook on the grill, 5 to 6 minutes per side, until the patties become firm to the touch and are cooked through.

You can place on a hamburger bun or english muffin (I am cutting back the carbs so I did not use a bun) then top with some of the celery-tomato topping.  Serve with the broccoli.

After supper we did some more work on the basement.  Our goal is to have it done by the end of this month.  Let’s hope we make it.

This morning breakfast:

Breakfast cookie dough cereal

In the mix:

  • 1/3 c. oatmeal
  • 1 T almond butter
  • 1/2 scoop whey chocolate protein powder
  • 1/8 c. almond milk

Mix together the oatmeal, almond butter and protein powder until crumbly.  Then add almond milk until moistened.  I topped it with 1/2 cup strawberries.  Yum, yum.

Now off to do the work thang.
