So I think I am going to keep this one short. Probably not, but at least you know that is my intention; to not bore you to the ends of the earth with my blabbing. I am doing a pay it forward giveaway right now so please go enter HERE. I think I have obsessively talked about it being fall, well I got my wish and now it is FREEZING. But that is ok, I am sitting here in my Footed Pajamas (yes I just admitted that, and I love these things) eating a bowl of hot elk chili I just made (Recipe will be coming soon) typing this post. In other words, I am cozy and I love it. Speaking of cozy, its another pumpkin recipe. I honestly have no idea what possessed me to shove pumpkin into the bowl while I was grinding my ground beef, but my instincts were correct and this was surprisingly delicious. I also decided that I wish pumpkin was in season all year round since I am obsessed with it. See HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE. And there are like 10 more so I will see you all in my Pumpkins Anonymous meetings.
Just in case you didn’t know, I am not a photographer, nevermind a food photographer so I get frustrated easily. I do not have a decorative or stylish gene in my body. Honestly, my wardrobe consists of sweatpants, workout shorts and Crossfit or Paleo tshirts. So lets just say, I do not like this photo and almost did not post the recipe because I could not get one I liked. Maybe it was the fact that it is really hard to make some meat look sexy, or just my hunger, but I was angry and had no idea how to plate these. So up above is what you get and I will try harder next time. So please know that these taste 1000 times better than they look (I hope). I am really not upset, but just felt the urge to vent a little, Phew. With that being said, enjoy and please leave a comment and rating letting me know how you like these. Oh and I almost forgot, I got to spend part of my weekend with my amazing friends at Cook Pigs Ranch in Julian, CA.
- Combine your ground beef, pumpkin, onion, and spices in a large mixing bowl
- Using your hands, mix well ensuring an even distribution of all ingredients
- Form into 4-6 small patties depending on the size you want them
- Preheat a cast iron skillet over medium heat
- Place a cooking fat of your choice in the pan, I used bacon fat but you can use coconut oil as well
- Cook for approximately 3 minutes per side or until they are done to your liking
- Plate however you like. I placed mine on a sliced tomato with raw onions on top
- Drizzle your honey over the burgers and serve
