Summer is winding to a halt as the kids head back to school and the sweltering heat finally starts to cool. Many people will start to pack up their grills. But, I caution you... Before you do, you MUST try this fabulous burger. Meat Lover's Cheesy Stuffed Pizza Burger is spectacular!

Burgers are so summery and so simple. I love creating gourmet burgers and surprising my friends. This Grilled Southwestern Cheesy Stuffed Burger is certainly a surprise with the Southwestern flavors and a scrumptious surprise packed inside!

Summer is here and this summer is all about the burgers. I love gourmet burgers and don't like to pay the big dollars restaurants charge. We joke that I have developed enough gourmet burger recipes to start my own restaurant.

It is any surprise that a carb nut like me would love sandwiches too? Well of course not. I am so excited about New Orleans. They could be in the running for the sandwich capital of America with all those fabulous Po'Boys and Muffalettas. Another city that thrills me for its fabulous sandwich representation is Philly. I mean can it really get any better than a Philly cheese steak sandwich?

Our trip to Sedona was fantabulous. Such a great way to step back and appreciate what's important. Aside from the red rocks, the energy, the vortex's and small town feel (even with 4 million visitors a year).... Sedona makes me think of burgers. Funny, isn't it! I imagine it is that restaurant that we love The Cowboy Club. Sadly we missed it this stop, but I assure you its on the top of our list for August.

Disclosure: I am working in partnership with the Gourmet Garden brand and I am receiving compensation for my participation in this campaign. All thoughts/opinions are 100% my own.
It has been an amazing week with Gourmet Garden. I can't begin to tell you how hooked on their herbs and spices I am. Well, I guess I can try... These herbs and spices translate perfectly in every recipe I have tried. I have cooked them, added them to raw dishes, made drinks with them, made pesto, I even add them to my eggs in the morning and beat them together and make an omelet.

The smell of spring in the air had me whipping off my grill cover and dusting off my grill this weekend. Chad has been talking about having a fine steakhouse burger all week. When I say he has been talking about it, I mean it! "Goodnight baby." "So, what do you think about having burgers tomorrow". Really?

Let me start out by saying; I am not a vegetarian. I just choose to eat as healthy as I can. Some days that means enjoying a meat free meal. These burgers are so delicious, I actually crave them. Loaded with 3 kinds of beans, sautéed vegetables and my favorite southwestern flavors, this burger will blow your mind.

Hey Slow Roasters, there's a new chick in town! This Grilled Breaded Chicken Sandwich is a healthier version of the old fried chicken classic, with a fresh TSRI twist. Every opportunity to make this sandwich is the perfect one. This chicken is our family favorite; in fact Chad wants it on the menu every week! The grilled breaded chicken is even divine on a tossed salad, just don't forget the pickles.
Don't want to grill? This breaded chicken cooks up beautifully under the broiler too! A fabulous marinade keeps this chicken so moist you won't believe it! Check out the special marinade that makes this so recipe delicious.

Last week I was brainstorming new ideas for chicken recipes and I had put together this fantastic idea for a Hawaiian inspired chicken. I had the recipe all written up when it hit me... BURGER!!! Oh yeah! This monster of a burger here is all Hawaiian inspired (at least from the opinion of this main lander).

I created this burger for Chad, my awesome husband. His love of way too spicy hot sauce and buffalo wings coated in said hot sauce was the inspiration for this burger. Right away I knew that the burger needed to be on a pretzel bun; this fabulous definition of what a pretzel bun should taste like. It is firm and pretzely on the outside and soft and pillowy on the inside. What a magical combination!

Knock Your Boots Off Tex-Mex Burger is really delicious. But, I am looking for some chile' spice! It is time to kick up the heat in this place. This Spicy Jalapeno Jack Burger will certainly wake up your taste buds.

Is it possible for perfection to arise out of the serious need for simplicity? We think it is. When there is no time for an inferior burger, only the best will do. Pull out your favorite flavors from your spice arsenal and get to work.

Summer salads are always a favorite at barbecues and summertime parties. When you are having a Summer Grilling Celebration, how do you bring your favorite Caprese salad to the grill? You transform it into an incredibly scrumptious gourmet burger that captures the essence of summer! With luscious tomato, fresh basil, creamy mozzarella and sweet balsamic vinegar this burger was destined for TSRI's burger hall of fame.
A perfectly grilled beef burger drizzled with a sweet balsamic reduction, served atop a layer of fresh chunky tomato sauce on a toasted ciabatta bun is enough to make your stomach growl and your taste buds swoon! Add a slice of fresh mozzarella and a spoonful of fresh pesto mayonnaise and you may just have to pick your tongue up off the floor!

ARE YOU READY FOR THIS? Welcome to the smokehouse, Slow Roasters. Today, we will be checking your inhibitions at the door, this burger is packed full of bravado. This is THE burger to wake up your taste buds! From the smokehouse flavors to the bacon and bbq sauce, flowing all the way down the river of beer cheese. This burger will have your mouth watering at first sight and your taste buds dancing with pure delight!
I was looking for the ultimate grilling creation to make for Chad (it is his birthday this week). I knew it had to be bold and passionate (like me). It had to be big, flavorful and loaded with cheese and bacon. I knew a burger would be perfect for this occasion. I have to search for the exact words to describe this burger... Maybe love. Can you feel love for a burger? Well if you can this is the burger. Chad looked like a kid on Christmas morning when he saw this burger. Once he took his first bite, his eyes rolled back in his head and the air was filled with mmmmm's. I love that sound! Needless to say this burger is a member of the clean plate club. Not even a drip of cheese was left on the plate. He licked it clean!
Did you take a REALLY GOOD LOOK at this tantalizing burger??? Go ahead, I'll wait. 8 ounces of ground chuck perfectly spiced with chipotle chile pepper. It is served over a bed of sweet and spicy TSRI's Signature Barbecue Sauce. A heaping scoop of luscious Beer Cheddar Cheese Sauce is poured over top, with 4 bacon strips all on a toasted ciabatta roll. This is the definition of burger heaven. Purely decadent and delicious. Chad has requested this for his birthday dinner too.
We are also excited to share with you our Anniversary Celebration Giveaway for this week... TSRI is having a 4 month grilling celebration, so what would be better than an amazing grilling giveaway to Celebrate our 1 year Anniversary? This will get all you Slow Roasters out on the patio and grilling your own summer treats! Check it our after the recipe!
Congrats to our winner KellyR78!

Hi Slow Roasters, thank you for joining us to celebrate the 1 year anniversary of The Slow Roasted Italian. It has been such an amazing year. When I first started this blog, I thought I would just be making a record of the recipes that I use regularly, something to look back on and a place for my family to be able to go to pull up the recipes they love. I never really knew that it would be such a fabulous experience. I can't believe how much I have learned over the last year. Flavor profiles, descriptive words, testing recipes, photo composition (although, except a few lucky shots I am still at a loss on this one) thank goodness my amazing husband and partner is such a wonderful photographer.

We are delighted to be participating in The Secret Recipe Club this month. It is so exciting, kind of like Christmas. This is how it works... A name is 'drawn' and assigned to you. "You simply choose any recipe from the blog you are assigned, make or bake it, and blog about it on the date specified..."
We drew The Keenan Cookbook. We were very excited to find this blog. It is a joint venture by husband and wife Chris and Rachel from New Jersey who have one child (and one on the way, congrats!!!). I really enjoy husband and wife blogs, I appreciate the difference in style when it is a collaboration (much like TSRI). At The Keenan Cookbook he cooks and she photographs.
