The hardest part about cooking a burger is watching your carefully formed patty go from a nice flat circle to a round chunk of meat right in front of your eyes. One method of keeping your burger flat is to make an indent on the bottom of the burger with a spoon before placing in on the grill. The heat will spread more evenly and prevent your burger from curling up into a ball. Thin, flat burgers are great for stacking and that’s exactly what the team at 98 Owasso apartments recommends you do with them. While the patties are still hot, throw some of your favorite ingredients on top like bacon and goat cheese, or lettuce and tomato. Then place another patty on top. There are a million variations on the stacked burger depending on what you feel like stuffing in the middle, but we recommend always including some cheese to help bind the burgers together.
Grill basket kebabs
The team at 98 apartments in Owasso loves using the outdoor grill to whip up new meals that are hard to pull off in a kitchen. One great way to get the most out of the grills at 98 apartments in Owasso is to invest in a grill basket. The following Kabob recipe is a great way to use your new grill toy. Next time you’re at the deli buying beef or chicken, ask the butcher to cut your meat into 2-inch cubes. They usually won’t mind doing it right there in the store, and their professional-grade knives will produce more precise cuts than the ones you have at home. When you’re home with your veggies picked out and your meat cubes assembled, throw everything into a grilling basket sprayed with cooking spray. While the basket is heating up on the grill, add your favorite spices and seasonings to this pseudo-stir fry and toss everything around a bit to make sure they’re coated evenly. When everything is ready, simply poke your skewer into the basket and snag the best looking pieces for your very own, perfectly seasoned kabob.
Quick and easy fajitas
Fajitas are a nice summer meal because they can be made with any leftover meat and vegetables wrapped in a flour tortilla. Sprinkle the filling with this quick seasoning mix to turn leftovers into sizzling fajitas: 3 teaspoons of seasoned salt, plus 1 teaspoon each of garlic powder, chili powder and onion powder. Saute with 1 tablespoon lemon juice. Toss into toasted tortillas and serve.
Homemade pie crust
Finally, we made it to dessert! Nothing tastes more like summer in the US of A than an apple pie. If you feel like building this american classic from scratch you can make your own crust with this easy recipe. First, put graham crackers in a blender with 1/4 cup butter and 1 tablespoon sugar, then using your fingers press them into a pie tin. Once your pie is cooked don’t forget to add a heaping dollop of whipped cream for a cool ending to your summer meal.
