Yay to longer daylight! Which means that we can finally grill “proper” on our balcony. It is not exactly “spring” here in Germany but warm enough (9 degrees) to stand out in the balcony to grill some MEAT. This was inspired by some instagram photo the Husband saw. Bun less burger. Yes. No Carbs. Just the juicy meat.

Bun less burger

Well okay I lied. The husband fired the grill almost a month ago when it is still wintery in Germany.

Here was what happened.

Husband at 6.30pm one month ago: “I just bought a grill. Buy some meat we are having burgers tonight.”

We were home together at 7.30pm. Took slightly less than an hour to assemble the grill. Had our first burger at 9pm for dinner.

This is a really simple recipe. Simply season with salt and pepper like how we alway season our burgers. To assemble we used avocados and some salad. A suggestion would be guacamole, so that its easier to eat. Then again this burger will definitely “dirty” your hands because there isn’t any buns to absorb the juice from the burger. You will feel the warm beef juice sliding down your hands but its all worth it. Trust me!
