Overall the recipe was pretty easy to follow and the burger's turned out pretty tasty. Although, one of my favorite things about the cookbook lead to a little confusion. See the cookbook is geared to the single girl living on her own, which means most of the recipes are for a single serving. Which I think is great since so often when you're cooking for just yourself it hard to make the recipe suit just one. Except in this case the boy decided we needed to buy over 2 lbs of meat, that way he could eat leftover for the next few days. Which mean I needed to eight-tuple most of the ingredients. Not that hard in theory, and overall it wasn't a problem, but in general the burgers did taste a little salty.
The boy had wanted a cheeseburger from himself, but I was planning on just having a hamburger. I don't really like cheeseburger since people normally make then using cheeses I don't like, things like American or Provolone cheese. But the boy had bought Gouda cheese for the burgers, and Gouda is a cheese I really do like, so I figured I'd give it a try.
And for dessert? Well I needed something to go with my Classic American Burger, and what's more American than apple pie?
Overall, I would say it turned out to be quite the successful meal! Good thing because there's still a good amount of food leftover! Do you normally make a point to cook just enough to eat that night? Or would you rather cook a lot more to make sure you have food left over for the next night?
