What are your plans this holiday season? Chances are that you’ll be attending a party or two, searching for presents for your loved ones, and baking some goodies. Depending on where you live, you might visit an outdoor ice rink to do a bit of ice skating or perhaps even spend some time playing in the snow with your kids.

Whatever you have in store, you’re going to need to eat. There’s just something about this time of year that makes us want to do things in a way that is a little bit out of the ordinary. At Mighty Flame, we always say that when you buy a propane tank, you unlock a world of culinary possibilities. This is especially true during the holiday season!

The Perfect Opportunity to Spice Things Up

Even though you’ll be heading to holiday parties and Christmas pageants, you’ll still be faced with the question of what to eat on an average Tuesday. You could make stew for the fourth time this month or you could try something else. We’re going to go out on a limb here and suggest that you do that latter.

Now that you’ve decided you want to make something fancy, you have a number of options. Fortunately for you, we’re here to help you decide–and to provide you with the recipe you need so that you don’t have to sit around and brainstorm or search or anything like that.

Why Not Do Some Surf and Turf?

Nothing says “fancy, out-of-the-ordinary food” like surf and turf. It is quite literally the best of both worlds. Because we are big fans of grilling, we’d campaign for a burger that’s been cooked up perfectly on the grill. This recipe from Serious Eats should do the trick just fine! Their Surf N’ Turf Burger contains all of the good stuff–a burger, lobster meat, and bacon.

It’s the perfect way to do something a little bit out of the ordinary while still sticking to your wheelhouse–assuming you’ve been following along with our blog and you’re still grilling in the middle of winter! Depending on where you are in the country, that could mean that you’ve been shoveling out a path to your grill and dealing with some snow or it could mean that the temperatures have been nice and comfortable and all you need when you’re outside is a flannel shirt.

Either way, the Serious Eats Surf N’ Turf Burger is sure to put a smile on your face. The ingredients are nothing particularly out of the ordinary and the directions for how to make your burger are easy to follow. The end result is something as delicious as it is fancy. It’s the ideal thing to make this holiday season when you need a change of pace but you still want to treat yourself. You’ll be thrilled, your family will be thankful for a change of pace, and everyone will leave the dinner table with a smile on their faces. It doesn’t get much better than that.
