We had already planned on making burgers tonight, so to make it more Paleo friendly, we skipped the bun, and just placed the patty on a bed of bibb lettuce. When trying to decide what kind of burgers we wanted to make, I thought of one of my favorite burgers in DC...Ray's Hellburger. Sadly, the place has shuttered, but you can still try their burgers at Ray's to the Third. Anyway...I'd always get their burger with roasted garlic, and grilled onions and peppers. So this is an ode to Ray's Hellburger.
We started by roasting a few cloves of garlic...with a drizzle of olive oil, and sprinkle of salt and pepper, just wrap them up in foil and pop 'em in the oven. An while the garlic roasted up, we also cooked up some sweet potato fries. The fries got a brushing of olive oil, and a sprinkle of truffle salt, pepper, garlic and parsley.
The crowning jewel was the fried egg on top!
The yolk was nice and runny, and since we held off on condiments, it provided a nice "sauce" for everything. An honestly, I didn't miss the bun. This whole Paleo thing may not be so bad afterall.
