The Project: Nancy Silverton's favorite burgers
Each Friday we post a recipe from the L.A. Times Test Kitchen archives that would be perfect for weekend cooking. This week, we've chosen Nancy Silverton's favorite burgers, which start with a freshly ground prime chuck-prime sirloin combo.
On the face of it, though, burgers don't seem all that time-consuming. So how did they make this week's Project pick?
'Cause if you do it right -- if you do it Nancy's way -- you'll spend a bit more time putting together the ultimate burger bar for your friends. This recipe offers just a few suggestions for ways to personalize your buns -- crisp slices of applewood smoked bacon and pepperoncinis, to name just a few. But we're confident you'll find a few more toppings of your own.
Happy Memorial Day, and welcome to the unofficial start of summer.
