Onion-Cheddar Pork Burgers

Handsome and I have recently gotten ourselves knee deep into a new hobby. One I would have never imagined myself doing alone. Mountain biking.

Every weekend and on weeknights where one of us doesn’t have school or work, we load up the truck with out two new Cannondale bikes, our silly sport apparel, and helmets and head out. We have discovered several great trails at some local Maryland and Delaware state parks that each offer something different and enjoyable for our rides. The guys at Wooden Wheels bike shop in Newark have been great to us as well, helping us pick out new bikes that work for us and recommending new websites and trails for us to try as well.

The best part about this whole shindig is that I would never have decided to pick up a bike and trek out into muddy paths with exposed rocks and roots all by myself – let alone break a sweat. (Don’t get me wrong, I have no problem getting muddy, I just wouldn’t have chosen a ‘push myself’ sport if left to my own devices). With Handsome pedaling ahead, my naturally competitive nature kicks things up a notch and I am more willing to push myself. It’s been interesting learning how to maneuver a bike through tight trails – not exactly as easy as the expression about riding a bike would make it seem. I have been struggling a little this week since I still have a sinus thing going on, but I am looking forward to where this new found love of mountain biking takes us.

Now, for what we eat when we get home and are starving after a long day at work and a few miles on the trails:

    That sounds awesome. I love stuffed burgers, and the onion sauce really sounds great.

    Awesome photo by the way. I really need a better camera! I can’t even fix my photos in Photoshop.

      I can eat like a fat kid and even I wasn’t able to eat two of these! If you can pull that off, I will bow down to the master :D

      We curse at every horseback rider that comes by – I’m sure every runner curses those of us on bikes! I give it up to anyone who is out there breaking a sweat!

    Gosh.. your burgers look so good!!! We don’t make burgers enough at home. We always go to a gourmet burger place and order over-priced burger. I feel like I can make it at home using your recipes!! Thanks for sharing. You gave me a hope! ;-)

      I believe home is the only place for a great burger! There is so much more you can do with then then at a restaurant! Try them!
