TheClothesMakeTheGirl’s SB&J Burgers for dinner — with a twist!

YAY! So I was super stoked to make Melissa Joulwan’s SB&J Burgers for dinner this work week!

This has been at the top of my To-Make List for weeks!

It’s a combination of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and a hamburger! It may not SOUND like a good combination — BUT IT IS!

And it’s Paleo!

2013-09-22 12.43.06I changed up the recipe a bit — and instead of making homemade Paleo jelly like Joulwan did — I instead dehydrated some bananas — making banana chips, and made SB&B Burgers!

I sliced up about six bananas, and dehydrated the slices in my dehydrator. IT. TOOK. FOREVER! Be prepared to wait this one out!

I purchased about two pounds of ground beef, and baked up six burgers in the oven on Saturday night. I seasoned the beef with salt, pepper, and some Steakhouse Burger seasoning.

OH. MY. LORD. The smell in my apartment was intoxicating! It took everything I had not to dig into a burger on Saturday night!

I had to make the two pounds of ground beef into enough burgers to last the work week, and frankly I could’ve used an additional half-pound to a pound, as my burgers were a little small for my liking — but they were definitely filling so it wasn’t much of an issue.

When it was time to pack lunch, I took a glass container, placed a leaf or two of lettuce down as a base, and put my burger on the lettuce.

Then, I smothered my burger with sun-butter, which is made using sunflower seeds, and topped the burger with green onions and some banana chips!

I definitely want to make this again — using jelly. I think it would add an incredible sweetness to this dish!

This might have to be a weekend dish next time, because I think this dish would be best enjoyed fresh and warm!
