I was trying to think of something fun to do with the grass-fed beef I had in the fridge. I love to change things up and make recipes I know the kids will find tasty and fun to eat. Burgers on sticks popped into my mind! The movie “Something About Mary” also came to mind…when they had the discussion about meat on sticks. I knew the kids would enjoy this. So I went to the local craft store and picked up some wooden popsicle sticks!
I soaked them water for about 20 minutes-Why? Well I’ve read that you should soak skewer sticks in water so I did the same. I also didn’t want them to catch fire.
Next I put the grass-fed burger (about the size of a regular burger) on each stick, and sprinkled the meat with Trader Joe’s 21 Spice Mix, sea salt, and pepper.
Set the grille to medium high heat until it is hot. Lay down foil under the popsicle sticks so they won’t light on fire. Turn temp down to medium and grille to your liking (approx 8 minutes per side give or take)
Now for the cheddar curry dipping sauce recipe:
1/2 cup of shredded melted grass-fed cheddar (I used Kerrygold brand)
2 TBS Homemade Mayonaisse (I love this recipe from nom nom paleo)
1 tsp dijon mustard
1/4 tsp of curry powder
a splash of almond milk or coconut milk
Melt the cheese in a small pan, whisk in the mayo, dijon mustard, curry powder, and milk…serve warm!
I served the burgers with potato crisps cooked in coconut oil.
Using a mandolin slicer thinly slice potatoes, cover the bottom of a pan with about 1/2 inch of coconut oil, spread potatoes in pan and cook until crispy. Sprinkle with sea salt…drizzle with vinegar if you like that!
