Grilled Burgers with Shoestring Fries

Dinner last night was grilled burgers with Shoestring fries.  
Usually I handcut fries but last night I wanted shoestring fries so I got out the Mandoline.   

 I have great respect , or maybe I should say "fear" for the  mandoline.  
I don't use my mandoline very often.  
I have never cut myself using the Mandoline, but I know so many that have done some major finger damage so when I do use it I am extremely careful.

The burgers were made from lean grounded beef and simply seasoned with just salt, pepper, fresh garlic and a little olive oil.  Lean ground beef can be a little dry so I
 always rub olive oil on my hands when I am shaping the burgers. This adds just enough fat back into the meat to ensure a juicy burger.

 Topped with locally grown Heirloom tomatoes, onions, dill pickle and lettuce.


  1. Yip, I have had a run in with a mandoline and it won :( The burger looks awesome and kudos for toasting the bun, I just cant eat a burger without a toasted bun! Did you bake the fries or fry them? They look very good.
    Thanks for sharing..

    Like you, I have a healthy respect for the mandolin - my husband badly cut his finger tips using one.

  6. Oh, how I wish I had that RIGHT NOW to eat! Looks delicious.

  7. I've been meaning to purchase a mandoline. Shoestring fries look so yummy.
