Brian Boitano, the gold medal skater, had a show on the Food Network for a while called What Would Brian Boitano Make? that was actually quite good. He cooked up all sorts of great food ideas, many of which were for entertaining. I’ve made a number of his recipes and they’ve all come out fantastic, including this one for a west coast burger.

West Coast Burger

There are two things that make this West Coast burger a great burger: the sauce and the onions. The sauce is a great combination of your usual burger toppings with a little hot sauce and garlic powder added in for extra flavor. The onions are sautéed, which isn’t anything spectacular. But, what is spectacular is that you add in mustard at the end of the sautéing. That really takes the onions to a new level. What a great idea!

I like to use a burger press when I make burgers. It, in combination with some patty papers, enables me to crank out a whole bunch of equally-sized burger patties in no time at all with little cleanup.

Also try my Buffalo wing burgers.
