First time I made ranch burgers, I used ranch dressing out of the bottle. Oh, don’t do that! They were moist – just like I thought they would be. That was a good thing. But they were so moist they came apart and slid down into the barbecue flames. Not a good thing. And they were so soft that it was impossible to slide a spatula under them to lift them off the grill. Really not a good thing! This recipe gives the taste and tenderness without the falling apart mess. Save the bottled ranch dressing to replace or supplement you ketchup allotment. Works much better!
Adding the BLT takes a good sandwich up a notch. Or maybe it’s the other way around – adding a burger to your BLT takes a good sandwich up a notch! Either way marrying two good sandwiches will be a tasty thing.
