Petaluma Summer Saturday Burgers


  1. One pound Tara Firma Farms ground beef
  2. Two Panorama Baking Company (or Della Fattoria) panini
  3. One small shallot, finely chopped
  4. Butter, cheese, mayonnaise, mustard, tomato, peppers, pickles, lettuce, as desired


  1. Morning: go to Tara Firma Farms at 3796 I Street, which is on your right not far before I Street Extension meets San Antonio Road. Buy 1 pound of their 100% grass fed ground beef. Take it home and defrost.
  2. Afternoon: go to the Farmer's Market at Walnut Park. At or near the corner of E and 4th you should find the Panorama Baking Company truck. Buy two of their panini. Also find a shallot, tomatoes, and any other desired veggies at the other booths.
  3. Evening: turn the gas grill on high and preheat for 7 minutes. Meanwhile, slice, toast and butter the buns (panini); finely chop one small shallot, mix with the burger, and form into two patties. Salt and pepper the tops of the patties.
  4. Grill the burgers at high heat, 4 minutes on one side and 3 on the other. If cheese is desired, add at the start of the last minute.
  5. Serve with your choice of condiments, slices of tomatoes and peppers, and lettuce if desired.

This is the second time we've had them; they're a meal in themselves, very tasty and filling.
