Wine Country Recipe: BBQ Burgers from Ponte Winery

Wednesday, June 20th, 2012

Simple Grilled Burgers with Ponte’s Secret Sauce

Ponte Family Estate is well-loved for their delicious al fresco restaurant so we asked them for a great grill recipe for summer. Here’s an interesting twist on an American classic – the cheeseburger.  And the best part about this burger recipe is it’s simplicity. This is an easy dish to prep and grill with the family for 4th of July weekend.  Pair with a light white wine – and sparkling lemonade for the kids!

Make the burgers using classic ingredients:

  • Ground beef (medium) or turkey patties (well-done)
  • Shredded lettuce
  • Pickles
  • Cheddar cheese (1-2 slices)
  • A bun, lightly grilled
  • Special Sauce (see below)

 

Measure the following ingredients by taste to make the special sauce:

  • Mayonnaise
  • Mustard
  • Mild curry spice
  • Dash of salt

 

*Pair with Ponte Winery’s Isabel 2010, a light and delicate summer white.
