If you've never tried a Bubba Burger...

I encourage you to give them a try.. They're unlike any frozen burger out there.. and, just FYI, they're not exactly burgers.. they're shaped like Texas! Really! I first tried a Bubba burger last summer at my best friends house, she kept talking about them and I finally asked her, What the heck is a Bubba burger? I had mine grilled at her house, but when she took them out of the freezer and put it on the grill still frozen I thought she had completely lost her mind.. but she explained to me that's what you're instructed to do on the box, so they stay juicy.. okay, I still wasn't sold on the whole idea, I was still hell bent that there was no way a frozen burger could be good... no matter what.

Well.. I was sure wrong, it was the most delicious Texas shaped burger I had ever had in my life! I had mine on a bun with all the fixin's, pickles, hot pepper rings and a little A-1.. wow, so good! So, when I was at the grocery store the other night and saw Bubba burgers I had to get myself a box, and since I have no access to an outside grill I pan fried them and they came out really good (as an afterthought I really should have used the GF grill, but I definitely will next time) as a side I made roasted Brussels sprouts that were seasoned with a little olive oil, salt, pepper and dried Italian herbs. I seriously think I have the only child that will eat Brussels sprouts, I wouldn't touch them when I was a kid and my grandma has them on the dinner table with her famous roast chicken, but they were boiled and she served them with cream sauce.. YUCK!! Roasting these little guys brings out a mild flavor that goes with just about any meat and they can be seasoned with pretty much any spice you wish.. I made them with curry one night with roast pork and it was unbelievable!

These are NOT your grandma's Brussels sprouts.
