Hamburger & Courgette on a Roll

BBQ season is starting off. And I grilled a couple of Hamburgers on baking paper. In order to collect all juices. That I later on used to marinate thin slices of Courgette. This is what you call a double Jammy

The best Hamburgers are made from Cows that had Corn for Dinner. An American Friend shared these insights with me a couple of years ago. I reacted like a true Duhh Dutchy. And did not believe her in the 1st place. But I must confess she was very right. Unfortunately I have not found any Beef Burgers in Holland that are as juicy. As I tasted back in the US. However I created this method to re-use the juices that come from Burgers. When you grill them on a BBQ. All this to make this Hamburger on a Roll as tasteful and moist as possible


  1. 2 Hamburgers
  2. 1 Red Onion
  3. 1 Courgette
  4. 2 Rolls of Bread
  5. 1 tbs. of Chipotle Spice-Mix
