It’s almost that time of the year! Two more weeks until the start of football season. Fans and tailgaters everywhere are getting excited.
Now, for those who don’t know, I was born and raised in Dallas, Texas. . where they basically teach you how to throw a football, boy or girl, at a young age. I didn’t really enjoy playing sports of any kind until my college days where I only played for fun but I’m glad that I finally developed an appreciation for the game.
Now, I still enjoy watching the games . . I’m definitely not as into the games as my husband is but I can still watch with him. I’m more concerned about the food.
What do we have? Is there enough food for everyone? and if we have friends over watching the game with us, will they leave feeling happy and full?
Enter these glorious filet mignon steaks from Omaha Steaks. And I’m grilling them on my KitchenAid grill. It has a secondary searing zone with an intense heat ceramic infrared burner. Yes, I know. Isn’t that the coolest thing ever? and I grilled these!
If you guys aren’t familiar with Omaha Steaks, these are the crème de la crème of steaks. Period. And my dad actually introduced us to Omaha Steaks when we were kids. I remember how happy we would get when we got that box in the mail.
Now, I know you’re thinking filet mignon on a burger?! What? Even my dad’s jaw is on the floor right now. But stay with me for a second and think about it. If you’ve had filet mignon before, you know how tender, soft and flavorful the meat is, right? And I know some people wouldn’t dare put this meat on a burger. . but come on you guys. .
Caramelized onions, dijon mustard and a toasted brioche bun? Isn’t this just calling your name?
Paul says if we serve these burgers at our next party, no one is going home and they’ll keep wanting to come back for more. I hope he’s right!
I’m sharing the full recipe over on the Omaha Steaks blog today! I’d love any comments over there!
