Single & Double Cheeseburgers for National Double Cheeseburger Day & National Cheeseburger Day.

Cheddar Cheese Double Cheeseburger.

Since it’s Double Cheeseburger Day today (September 15th) and Cheeseburger Day this Friday (September18th) it’s time to double down on some homemade beef-and-veggie-blend burger patties loaded with all of the fresh fixings straight from the garden! The single patty burger had gruyere cheese, homegrown tomatoes, garden fresh lettuce, onions, homemade quick pickles (made from homegrown cucumbers) topped with a fried egg, mushrooms, and covered in a Steak au Poivre inspired sauce. The double burger had all the fresh garden toppings and some thick sliced, medium-strength, melted cheddar for a hearty traditional burger experience. Such loaded burgers need a loaded pairing, and Tree House Brewing’s unfiltered, kettle and dry-hopped, double IPA Haze (Alt. Link) delivered; bringing some slightly sweet peachy-tropical juice flavors to the party to round things out.

Shrimp & Sausage Brick Oven Pizza

Shrimp & Sausage Brick Oven Pizza

Since National Cheese Pizza Day is just around the corner (September 5th), it seemed as good an excuse as any to chop some wood and fire up the brick pizza oven to test out some new cheesy pizza recipes! One winner was the shrimp and sausage pizza paired with a refreshing gose; the perfect pairing to savor while enjoying these last few weeks of summer!
