My Maid Rite Burger

I was inspired by Maid Rite last weekend. I went there with my niece and had a great time. Of course we laughed and joked (because that’s what we do), we enjoyed the atmosphere and relished in the perfection of their fries! The burgers were good too! I will go there again and eat the same burger, but while I was eating it, I had the thought, “I could make a delicious version of this!” So that is what I did. It doesn’t taste exactly like a Maid Rite burger, I didn’t want it to. That’s why I named it “MY Maid Rite Burger.”

When I eat a Maid Rite I taste the beef and the toppings, but I always feel like it’s lacking in the “popping with flavor” category. I didn’t want my version to be overwhelming with extra flavor (I still wanted to taste the beef), but I knew that there were little things I could add that would simply enhance the whole experience of it all!

Needless to say I feel like I achieved what I wanted with this meal, otherwise I wouldn’t be posting it (you’d be surprised at how many dishes I think are going to be home runs and they end up eaten…but only because they were edible and that’s about it, yeah, I don’t share those ones with you).

I was so busy eating this that I forgot to take a picture of the burger assembled! It was so good and I was so in to enjoying it that taking a picture didn’t even cross my mind until now, when I’m putting together the post! I guess you will just have to try it out yourself to see how great it looks all put together.

My Maid Rite Burgers

by Becca Fillmore,

1 pound ground beef

1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt

1/4 teaspoon garlic salt

1/4 teaspoon onion powder

1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1 onion thinly sliced (to make rings)

1 tomato thinly sliced

lettuce leafs

Hamburger Buns or bread

Begin to sauté ground beef. When the meat is just starting to brown add the seasoned salt, garlic salt, and onion powder. When done remove meat with a slotted spoon. Add Worcestershire sauce to the meat and stir to evenly coat.

In about 2 tablespoons of the meat drippings sauté onions until limp and starting to brown.

Scoop meat on bun, top with onions, tomatoes, lettuce, and other desired toppings. Enjoy!!!!
