100 000 Hits Party!

No. 1 -The Mini Burgers

100 000 Hits Party 247

Life is a party, if we make it one, so when I rolled around to 100 000 hits recently, I thought why not celebrate. Since beginning this blog, about 10 months ago, it’s been a wonderful journey, and I’m very thankful to all my readers for showing up at the party, so to speak.

Friday night I got together with 10 readers for a night of fun and celebration. Over the next 10 days, I’ll be sharing all the recipes, decor ideas, and party inspiration from our girls get together. Here’s a picture of all 10 of us (well 9, one dear friend and follower came down with a sinus infection and had to cancel at the last min., we missed you Jen, feel better soon).

From the top: Kim (from Restoration House), Jennifer, Myself (Dannyelle), another Danielle, Stephanie, Heather my sister (from La Petite Fleur), Heather, another Heather, and Connie (from Telling His Stories, and who took lots of the pics for me ;))

I had a great time with these amazing ladies, including Kim of Restoration House. She has a great home decor blog, and if you haven’t read it yet, you should check it out. My sister Heather and her store La Petite Fleur supplied all the beautiful flowers as one of my new sponsors, and will be featured tomorrow.

Over the course of the evening we shared some great food, cocktails, and fun, which I’ll be sharing with you over the next several days. One of my new favourite party foods are these Mini Burgers.

To make the hamburger patties, use whatever your favourite burger recipe is. We started out with a couple of lbs. of lean ground beef, added dry onion soup mix, and formed into mini patties. It’s that simple. Top Tip: Make them nice and thin, or you’ll end up with mini meatballs, rather than burger shapes after you cook them.

I found mini-burger buns at the Metro, yeah! Last summer, I had to get a bakery to custom make them mini size, with a 3 doz. minimum order, now they’re regular in-stock at my local grocery store, awesome!

Earlier in the day I caramelized some onions, by cooking sliced onions over a low tempurature with a little oil, worcestershire sauce, and brown sugar until they were golden brown.

We toped the mini burgers with swiss cheese, some of the caramelized onions, sauteed mushrooms, and a little HP sauce. So yummy!

We served them with Kettle chips, for a cocktail size play on burgers and fries.
