Get in the kitchen men!

It’s National Men Cook Dinner Night, when this concept was first brainstormed the thought of men cooking dinner was a novel idea. Now in 2022, it’s more than likely that men (husbands) do a large share of the cooking. In my house I do a lot of cooking, mostly grilling to be honest, and my wife is probably in the kitchen whipping up a salad or whatever would go with said meat. So, we kind of celebrate the day a lot.

A man’s place?

A lot of men do not cook very often for whatever reason, perhaps they don’t enjoy it, or their partners are so good at it, why ruin a good thing. So, for you guys that don’t really enjoy the whole dinner cooking concept, this recipe is for you.

Frank and Dean

Dean Martin enjoyed cooking a lot, he was the official chef of the Rat Pack, cooking up pasta sauce (or gravy) even in the Las Vegas hotel, The Sands when the Pack were performing there he had a suite with a kitchen in order to make spaghetti and meatballs and other Italian dishes.

All the Rat Pack members, Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr, Joey Bishop and Peter Lawford would head to Dean’s room for after show parties and dine on his delicious Italian dinner, but sometimes Hamburgers were on the menu, and they all loved it, especially Frank.

Who knew that Deano was a great fan of the great American Hamburger? 

I suggest tonight you buy some hamburger and try Dean’s now famous burger recipe, but I wouldn’t try Frank’s burger recipe because, apparently his recipe was to call Deano and let him do the cooking.
