The O-Burger

I’ve made variations of the following burger stack on several occasions and found the following recipe most consistently successful. Has a piece of meat ever inspired your O-face? The Ormiston burger will:

  • Beef bathed overnight in Balsamic and Guinness (tap preferred)
  • Roasted Garlic Shmear
  • Blueberry Walnut Chutney
  • Shaved Goat Gouda
  • Fresh Spinach
  • Served on a buttered Belgian Waffle

The only redeeming quality of Los Angeles for me is the food. To commemorate great friend & culinary buddy Allison Walsh’s escape from Los Angeles, we embarked on a dining campaign this weekend to hit as many local favorites as possible before she moves to Washington DC. In 36 hours, we experienced swanky fusion street food, pub-style dessert, home-style Korean, Middle Eastern ice cream, and a Chinese Dim Sum breakfast. Below is a list of our samplings:
Alibi Room (Kogi BBQ)

Stout (Hollywood Burgers and Beer)

Western Doma Noodle (Korean)

Mashti Malone (Exotic Ice Cream)

9 Ingredients That Make Scrambled Eggs More Interesting

Most people do not eat breakfast in the morning, which is silly for three reasons:

  1. It’s important – we desperately need protein in the morning to kickstart our day.
  2. It’s inexpensive – a two egg and spinach salad meal could cost you as little as $0.32.
  3. It’s easy – limited gear, fast cooking times, light cleanup, no skills required.

Scrambled eggs are easiest of all.  Whip eggs and other stuff together in a bowl, toss in a greased (with light butter or macadamia nut oil) skillet on medium-low temperature, cook until firm, and eat.

That said, scrambled eggs can get a little boring. I recommend a mix and match of any six of the following to mix it up to taste in the morning:

  • Sliced lunch meat (my favorite is pastrami, but there’s other better ones for you)
  • Chopped garlic (only a little)
  • Tabasco Sauce
  • Chili powder (if you want more of a kick)
  • Garlic Salt
  • Ground Pepper
  • Paprika
  • Splash of honey (if you want it to be a little sweeter)
  • Splash of milk
