Southern Comfort Glazed Mushroom Burger

Southern Comfort Glazed Mushroom Burger | Cooking on the Front Burner #recipes #burger

It's grilling time!  All day at work I was trying to decide what to make for dinner that would be easy and keep the kitchen cool (it's been a super hot week)!  I kept coming back to a recipe I had seen at my friend Lisa's blog Cooking with Curls.  It was a yummy glaze made with Jack Daniels.

So after work, I made a quick stop at Target to get some ingredients I needed knowing I had a bottle of Jack Daniels at the house.  Well when I got home, I discovered we didn't have any but the DIY Guy suggested using Southern Comfort instead.  I think it made for a good substitution.

    We also had a simple salad - fresh cut tomatoes and cucumbers tossed with S&P, red wine vinegar and olive oil.  A nice dinner for a hot night!
