BLT Pizza Burgers

This is a non-recipe recipe. A double negative. A loop hole in the system. A promise of a new day.


BUT FIRST: omg. I feel the babies. And it’s weiiiiiiiiird. It feels like a psychedelic butterfly parade with bubble machines and face painters and mimers with tissue paper feather hands. Every time I feel it my face gets all weird and I go, “Oh! Oh! It’s them! I think it’s them! I’m 99% sure it’s them!” And then I look around to no one but my dog.

A pregnant girlfriend of mine gave me a fetal heart monitor thingy, so every morning (aaaand probably every half-hour after that), Aaron and I listen to the heartbeats before he zips off to work. And I squeal. And he covers his ears. And then we make up songs to their beats. This morning they played us Phil Collins’ “In The Air Tonight.” THEY DID I SWEAR.


So this is what you make for dinner when your brain hurts from trying to decide what to make. It’s paaaawfect for summer, and covers all the cravings for all the foods that you want to eat all of the times. Pizza, burgers and BLTs. Heck, slide a chocolate chip cookie in the middle and you’re set.

Ew, don’t do that. Or do? Don’t. Or maybe YOU do it and let me know how it is. But don’t.

But do.


Slicey slice here, choppy chop there, sizzly sizzle here, toasty toast there, bubbly bubble here, layery layer there.


See the cheeseless one in the back? You’ve met my husband, right? You can feel sorry for me.

You haaaaave gawwwwwt to make these. If you don’t I will tissue-paper-feather-hand-mime you right in your face!

I wish I knew what that meant.


Double negatives taste really good.

BLT Pizza Burgers:

What it took for 4 burgers:

* 4 slices bacon
* 1 large tomato, cut into 4 thick slices
* 1/2 cup favorite marinara (jarred is great)
* 4 slices mozzarella cheese
* 8 slices romaine, rinsed and torn
* 4 onion buns, sliced

Render the bacon until nice and crispy. Set aside on paper towels to drain.

Spread the marinara on the bottom half of each onion bun. Place the mozzarella on the top half. Throw under the broiler (or you could bake it if you have patience!) for a minute or two until the cheese is melted and bubbly.

Layer the burgers with romaine, tomato and bacon. Place the top bun on that thing and go, go, go.

The end.

    HOORAY!! It's so weird but such an amazing experience to feel that life is truly in there. I cannot even believe what an amazing experience it is. Although, I would totally give up the whole living in the hospital and barfing my guts up for 9 months thing. Stupidness. ;)

    What an absolutely magical moment for you & Aaron. You know, to find out that your kids have reasonably good taste in music. Until that moment you just never know... they could be beating out Robin Thicke... and then, you know... all your hopes are shattered. (My sincere apologies to any Robin Thicke fans...)

    I would have DIED if I got to listen to Wes every day - what a sweet gift! And you guys are the cutest people on the planet :)

    I love the monitor story - too cute! What a blessing to be able to do that throughout your pregnancy!!! These babies may have a future in music!!! :) And these burgers - classic, awesome, perfect!

    WHUT!? Genius, lady- that's two of my own preggo cravings right there, with the bacon and the cheese and the meaty burger! I'm 18 weeks tomorrow, and miss my burgers medium rare, but this will make up for that. Enjoy your fetal heart monitor thingy! Heartbeats are the best part of my prenatal visits these days, I'm jealous of your monitor!

    Girl, if you'll make these for dinner, you can be my mama too!! Or would that be weird? Nevermind.

    It's like Kristan read my mind up there! I was going to say something similar! So instead of asking you to be my mama and cook for me everyday, I'll tell you that YOU'RE PREGNANT! Isn't that exciting?! Oh, did you already know? Oh. Okay. Well, I'm excited!

    Mmmm, Pizza Burger Dancing Babies. Wait, whaa? Okay, those kids clearly have musical talent in that little recording studio belly of yours. And I need a pizza burger. Clearly, I'm delirious.

    Isn't it such an awesome feeling?! I remember when I first felt my son, just a little flutter and I was like "is that the baby?!!?" It got a little weird, but cool, towards the end when people sitting across the room would say "Hey I see the baby moving!" And that was just with one, you've got two in there, it'll be even more fun! :)
