Sunday Burgers

Sunday Burgers are what’s on the menus most Sundays when we have a Curry family gathering. Our burger of choice is juicy ground dark meat chicken. We LOVE sautéing these burgers smothered  in onions, shiitake mushrooms and garlic. This is a moist juicy burger served with blistered green beans, cole slaw, fresh corn on cob ( Mexican Street Style),  and grilled summer squashes in the summertime or roasted carrot and parsnip fries all year long.  If everyone wants a green salad we use our Curry House salad dressing.

When the kids were young~ ice cream Sundaes were our family’s Sunday Fun Day treat! YUM YUM!
