I love to cook creatively. One night I had thawed a pound of lean, grange fed, ground beef, to put on the grill. But, I didn't want plain burgers. I started adding what I thought would give the burgers good flavor and texture. I think it started with grated carrots, caramelized onion and garlic, and went from there. When my hubby brought them in from the grill, I was pleasantly surprised, that they smelled so great, and tasted awesome. They taste great on a bun, with lettuce and tomato, but we had them, that night, with buttered bow tie pasta, and a simple salad. My husband named them, when we talked about serving them to our grandson, who can be a picky eater. He said we should give them a fun name, and maybe he would be more willing to eat them. He suggested "Circus Burgers", because of the orange, of the carrot. Well, Joshua loves them, and the name has stuck. :D
