4th of July~~~~America Day!

I am ready here to get todays grilling and frying started. Just waiting for go time. I ground up a couple of nice chuck roasts, 6 lbs total for burgers and sliced up about 5 lbs of potatoes for "American Fries".




Sliced potatoes soaking in a salty ice water brine. After draining, into the outdoor fryer they go.

Re: 4th of July~~~~America Day!

Just to remind me which is which. The whole t-picks are for 1 grind(course), the half t-picks are 2 grind and the rest are a mix of half 1 and half 2 grind on the Kitchenaid. I have a 3/4 hp Cabela's grinder but, it's too big for such a small amount of meat.

And now, the rest of the food.

The fries in the fryer


About one third of them done!


What can be more American than a deep fried hot dog?


Some of the burgers on the grill


This one is MINE!


Burger, fries, and a piece of crawfish bread


Before I started with any of the fries, I decided to make some mini jelly doughnuts. Here are some of them in the 350* oil.


Filled with a raspberry filling


Powdered and ready for dessert

Re: 4th of July~~~~America Day!

Thanks guys! I'll tell you what. Well, first off, using the KA to grind about 6 lbs of meat wasn't bad but, I may have to get me a smaller grinder than the 3/4 hp behemoth Cabela's model I have. Reason being, I definitely plan on grinding more fresh ground meat in the future! Everybody loved the burgers! I mean they were delicious and all I seasoned the meat with was black pepper and Kosher salt.

Now, I actually did an experiment of two burgers with one grind, two with a double grind and the rest were half of each. Each burger was about 1/3 lb and I only was able to eat one of the single ground burgers. It was fantastic!
I'll try one of the other two later today. Man, fresh ground beef makes a world of a difference. Biggest suggestion I'll make to anyone doing this is to NOT pack your burgers too tight and dense when forming your patty. This just makes it heavy, dry out and just not as good as it can be. You want to form your patty and keep the meat sort of loose(hard to explain this)and you will have a good juicy burger provided it has enogh fat in it and don't overcook it.

This is funny! My family is used to me taking photos of my food now so, yesterday my daughter asks me "Did you get a picture of the boudin ball?" I didn't. I forgot to put 1 or 2 on my plate for the picture. I told her I'd have to start over and eat everything all over again. Sorry, I couldn't! I was stuffed but, the boudin balls were delicious and she made them as along with the cheesy crawfish bread. I was really pleased to taste something she cooked so good.
