Disneyland Burgers!!

These will be forever known as Disneyland Burgers to us. They are a copy of the pastrami burgers served at the Village Haus Restaurant in Fantasyland. My husband requested them for his birthday.

This is for 5 burgers, adjust accordingly if you need more or less

I like Telera Rolls for this, but you can use any bun you like!

1.5 lbs ground beef  (specifically chuck for authenticity, but other fat contents work )
1 TB water
1/2 tsp liquid smoke
1/4 tsp garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste

1/2 lb pastrami
2 large sweet onions, caramelized(link for steps)
Swiss Cheese

Creamy Horseradish:
1/4 cup sour cream
2 TB mayonnaise
1 TB prepared horseradish
salt and pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients of horseradish sauce, set aside

Get your onions caramelized and set aside.

Gently combine beef, water, smoke and garlic powder, salt and pepper and form into 5 patties roughly 5 oz each.

Broil under high heat 4-5 minutes per side until no pink remains (165 degrees!)
Add cheese and heat until just melted.

Slice and toast your buns,

Spread some of the horseradish sauce on your bottom of the bun, add a patty, some pastrami, some onions, pickles and lettuce.
Spread a little more horseradish sauce on the top bun and place it on top.

Serve and enjoy!!

Flamin' Hawaiian Chicken Breast

My husband suggested that he and the boys make dinner for Mother's day.....He came up with an idea and I thought it would be a great blog recipe based on one of my favorite pizzas! So we thought up a recipe and he and the kids made it up for me. DE-LICIOUS!

Amounts will depend on how many you are serving

Chicken Breast
Roasted Red Peppers*
Fresh Jalapeño slices
Smoked Provolone
Fresh Pineapple
Hot Sauce

*We ended up using sweet cherry peppers, I used up my last red pepper a few nights ago, oops.

Slice up your pineapple

Roast and slice your Peppers

Preheat oven to 375.

Slice your chicken into roughly 4 oz portions

Pound your chicken breast to 1/4 inch thickness

Take your pounded chicken pieces and lay them flat on your work surface.

Place some slices of pepper.


And a bit of provolone, don't overload it!!

Roll gently tucking the ends in as you go.

Place a slice of fresh pineapple over the top

Then wrap the whole thing with a slice or 2 of bacon, secure with toothpicks if necessary

Place on a baking sheet or a dish

Drizzle with hot sauce as desired.

Bake for 30-45 minutes until a meat thermometer reads 165.

Allow to set 5-10 minutes before serving.
