I myself am partial to the old fashioned crinkle cut fries. They remind me of my childhood when pretty much any hamburger joint served them but only a few places in town now do so. For years I was on a quest to find a fancy cutter for crinkle cut fries, but settled on an inexpensive hand held cutter. I like how the crinkle fries have ripples and the higher edges get more crispy. I do like regular French fries, curly fries not so much and thick cut, so-so. But if you're up to it as I am on occasion, fry your potatoes in beef tallow, (like McDonald's did for years). I guess you've all just inspired me to make some crinkle fries!
Nice looking burgers, Nullo, Kristen, and Marlene!
We had Marlene burgers tonight. We have a birthday party this weekend, and I wanted to try these out. I used a little more S and P than called for. I eyeballed the the peanut butter, so I may have used too little, but the taste was very faint, s carcel;y detectable. I probably wouldn't have noticed it at all if I hadnt known it was in there. I skipped the pre-grill chill, but the burgers still held together just fine on the grill. Overall I think these were great burgers. Thanks for the recipe, Marlene!

I do make good gravy if I don't say so m'self but I brought back Ahh Bisto gravy mix from England...just add granules to boiling water and some of the meat juices, stir and crazy delicious gravy in about 30 seconds!
First of all - just wanted to say I am extremely jealous of some of the choices you American's get as far as booze goes. Here in Canada - we can only get what our Liquor commission decides to sell - and we pay a hefty premium
