PICKLED ONION BURGER WITH GARLIC AIOLI

CELEBRATING MEMORIAL DAY WITH A GAME-CHANGING BURGER RECIPE


Memorial Day is right around the corner and I can almost smell the neighborhood grills firing up to celebrate the long weekend!  This weekend is the perfect opportunity to kick up your hosting skills a notch and serve your guests something more than just your average burger.  In this recipe, I’ve put a twist on the old classic and added pickled red onions with a garlic aioli sauce creating a flavor combination that is a complete game-changer in my book.

I know what you may be thinking, pickled red onions?  That’s in way over my head or I don’t have time for all that but I can honestly tell you that this recipe is super easy and simple to make.  The pickled red onions take about 5 minutes to throw together and you can do this several days ahead or the night before.   This method is called quick pickling and it’s way less intimidating than the real deal.  

Next up is the garlic aioli sauce.  This is another super easy way to dress up any burger or sandwich.  An aioli sauce traditionally consists of a mayo base, however, you can substitute it for Greek yogurt if you prefer.  Here is a major tip, if you decide to go the mayo route, use REAL mayo! I can’t stress this enough!  Without real mayo, your aioli will be a flop.  I personally like to use Hellman’s Mayonnaise but there are several other brands out there that you can use as well.  All it takes is some garlic, lemon and a little salt and pepper added to your base.  That’s it!  And the thing I love about this recipe is that you can change it up by adding other elements like fresh herbs or make it spicy with wasabi or Sriracha.  There are tons of recipes out there to try.

With these two delicious toppers accompanying your burger, you’ll have a crowd pleaser assembled in no time!  Check out the complete recipe below to get your Memorial Day weekend started off right!

  • Here is some advice for all my SINGLE LADIES out there! 
Earlier today, I had a discussion with some younger co-workers of mine and I feel like you may relate and probably need to be told this so keep reading! One of the girls stated that she’s never had a good relationship and wanted to meet a nice guy. 
Another girl made a remark about the kind of guys she dated when she was her age and then asked me what kind of relationships I had when I was the other girl’s age and I told them the truth. I dated a very nice guy for 4 1/2 years when I was her age. At one point, I honestly thought that we would marry someday, but I was so young/still trying to figure out who I was and what I wanted my adult life to be like. Eventually we didn’t agree on the same things and grew apart. It ended well and I wish him well. Later after I had a few relationships, that also did not last and it was all for good reason. I feel like I was able to learn something from my past relationships that allowed me to be ready when I was meant to meet my husband which I have been married to for 10 years now. So the next time you look back at those past relationships and you’re looking for a nice guy, just know you’re one relationship closer to meeting the one and when you do you will know it and you will be ready for it! Just know your worth and never lower your standards because you feel like you have to to make it work. Always stay true to yourself because if you’re not, it will not be you they have fallen in love with. Like @arianagrande sings...Thank you, NEXT!

  • Lately, I’ve been reading a ton of wellness articles about the benefits of collagen powder and how women in their 30’s produce less collagen naturally which can start to effect your skin and so on. Ever since I read that. Ive been wanting to give it a try... The one I chose to put to the test is called Gym and Tonic and it’s a collagen protein powder by @tonicproducts 
I started adding 2 scoops into my blueberry banana smoothies in the mornings which has been so great because I’m guilty of never eating breakfast unless it’s brunch or brinner and I’m always rushing to get out the door and to work on time! 
Not only is it free of soy, dairy, gluten, and artificial hormones, but you can also rest assured that their ingredients have all been responsibly sourced. And here’s the bonus, it contains 18 essential amino acids that our bodies cannot produce on their own which combined will help with hair, skin, nail growth, joint pain, and good gut health! Winning!

So glad I finally tried it, and I will def be adding it into my daily routine. 
P.S. I’ve shared a Mango Smoothie Pop recipe in my stories/highlights that this would be perfect in x beating the summer heat with a sweet treat! 😉
