So, it’s obviously not the middle of summer right now, but a good ole’ cheeseburger is still a family favorite for dinner. Usually once a week, or every other week. While I love a beef patty grilled outside, that’s just insane in 30 degree temps. At least for me it’s crazy. No worries though, because it’s just as tasty in the oven.

The trick to a delicious burger?

Use a wire rack on top of your baking sheet, as it allows your burger to drip it’s fat down. Then, the last couple minutes of cooking, hit it under the broiler.

Another trick to a delicious burger?

The sauce.

You would think my family is from the south, with how much we all love barbecue, and this barbecue aioli sauce is perfect.

It’s actually quite easy to make too! It’s a mixture of mayo, barbecue, chipotle chili pepper, garlic, and extra virgin olive oil.

Once you make your bbq aioli, you can keep it refrigerated for a couple of weeks.

Another thing I just HAVE to have on any burger? Sauteed onions. It just adds another amazing flavor. I used just a little bit of extra virgin olive oil. Then I used the same pan to toast the buns.

Is it bad I’m getting hungry just writing this post? Let alone the photos are making my mouth water.
