Firing up the grill at our Evergreen Walk Company Store

“I’ll gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today.”  Popeye’s friend Wimpy sealed the hamburger’s place in America’s heart with a never-ending plea for his favorite meal.  The sentiment was the same at Stonewall Kitchen’s cooking class at Evergreen Walk in South Windsor, CT when Corey Wry dished out his famous burgers recently.  His restaurant, Corey’s Catsup and Mustard, was recently featured on Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives which made the already popular hamburger joint’s business explode.  On this particular Tuesday, Corey shared two of his burger recipes with a very grateful crowd.

Corey prepares the salad as guests finish their appetizer: Coconut Curry Mussels with Lobster Broth, made with Stonewall Kitchen Coconut Curry Simmering Sauce
A little bit of everything went into CW's Italian Chopped Salad, which was tossed with Stonewall Kitchen Italian Dressing and lemon juice and then topped with grilled chicken.
Jenna and Stephanie are loving the salad! Will there be room for those burgers? You bet!

Now we're starting to get serious as the fixings for the hamburgers are revealed!  Guests Jen and Stacy are looking over the recipe while Christine and Andrea wait patiently for their next course.
A little wine to help make room for burgers!

 There were two burgers on the menu for this class - a Portobello, Bacon and Swiss burger and a Turkey S.F. Connect Burger for those who are health conscious.  Here is the recipe to try out the SF Connect Burger at home.  Enjoy!

  • 4 slices Swiss cheese, cut in half
  • 8 slices sourdough bread, buttered
  • 2 0z butter, softened

  1. Preheat grill to medium heat
  2. Season ground turkey with salt, pepper and oil and form into patties
  3. Fully cook turkey burgers on grill
  4. In a separate large saute pan, over medium heat, toast bread until golden brown.  With the bread in the pan, add Thousand Island Dressing and 1/2 slice of Swiss cheese to each slice of bread.
  5. Melt the cheese being careful not to burn the bread.  Take bread out of the pan and top with two slices of pickle, turkey burger, lettuce, two tomato slices, two pieces of bacon and the other slice of bread.
  6. Cut in half, serve and enjoy!
