Burgundy Pepper Hamburger
Here we go....the Burgundy Pepper and Bacon Cheddar Gourmet burgers are placed on the George for a low-fat healthy eating experience. These gourmet burgers came directly from the Chief Supermarket in Wauseon, Ohio.
Did you know that the Chief Supermarkets have been available to the public since 1951? They have one of the best management teams I know. They go above and beyond to cater to their customers. They only offer the best products, and they support the local farmers. The very first Chief Supermarket was located in Defiance, Ohio. When they first opened their doors on March 4, 1951, in just four and a half hours they served 8,200 people. The Chief is not only a grocery store, the company also operates a grant program which rewards community outreach projects that focus on youth. And another tid-bit of information, the Chief remains family-owned to this very day. For a family owned business to uphold integrity, ethics, and great customer service within our current crashing economy has got to say something....WAY TO GO CHIEF!! I love you, and I am always encouraging your great business. http://www.chiefmarkets.com
The avocado....Did you know that there are many different names for the avocado? In Jamaica it is called the alligator pear. The Dutch call it avocaat; Spain abogado; France avocatier; Trinidad and Tobago zaboca, and even our late president George Washington (first president of the United States) wrote that agovago pears were abundant and popular in Barbados.
An avocado is a fruit, not a vegetable. It is really a member of the berry family.
Here is a little bit of history about the avocado that struck my interest. Did you know that in the past the avocado had a secured reputation for inducing sexual art? An avocado wasn't purchased or consumed by any person wishing to protect their image from slanderous assault. Growers of the avocado had to sponsor a public relations campaign to dispel the ill-founded reputation before avocados became popular.
Avocados received their name from the Spanish explorers. The Spanish explorers could not pronounce the Aztec word for avocado, known as ahuacatl (testicle, because of its shape).
Avocados must reach full maturity before they can be picked, however, they do not soften on the tree. The tree works as a storage unit for the avocados because they can remain on the tree for several months.
I think it is a lot of fun to seed and peel an avocado. Start by cutting lengthwise around the seed. Once you have a complete cut around the seed, just give it a little twist and the avocado is cut in half. The seed will remain in one half of the avocado. To pull the seed out just stick your knife in it and pull. It pops right out. Once the seed is discarded run a spoon around the inside edge of the skin, and you should end up with a complete half of avocado meat. You will be able to slice it for sandwiches, salads, or chop it for guacamole.
When choosing an avocado make sure it is not too soft. If the avocado is hard let it sit on the counter for a couple days. If you noticed in my pictures, my avocado was too ripe. I didn't want to throw it out, so I placed slices on my Burgundy Pepper hamburger.
I don't have a recipe for the Burgundy Pepper burgers due to the fact the burgers are store bought. I just felt like sharing some good quality information with you.
Good Luck~Happy Eating~Enjoy
