The days get shorter, the sun sets a little earlier, the temps are slowly creeping into sweater or jacket weather, our garden is nearly spent and over the past couple of weeks, I’ve seen some pretty cute back-to-school photos in my social media feeds. But there’s one more final end-of-summer get-together before the onslaught of football and all things pumpkin; actually, we plan to gather family and friends around our table even after summer ends – and most likely our meals will include something grilled. Sometimes it’s brisket, chicken or smoked turkey breast, but quite often it’s something as simple as a great burger.



Our burgers have been topped with everything from caramelized onions and mushrooms to cheddar and blue cheese; but while we were in Italy this summer, we visited the Expo in Milan and enjoyed our first ever, Belgian fries with mayonnaise – what a revelation! And when the nice people over at OXO sent us their brand new, hand-held spiralizer we thought topping a burger with crispy fried sweet potato curlies would be mighty tasty nestled between tender bibb lettuce on a grilled bun that is schmeared with garlic aioli – do I have your attention?


The OXO Good Grips hand-held sprializer is both fun and easy to use but the feature I love most is its size – it fits in a kitchen drawer and doesn’t take up premium counter space; the food holder keeps hands safe from the sharp blade. It’s also a fun way to add more veggies to your meals and can be used for most root vegetables as well as zucchini, cucumbers and other long vegetables – like sweet potatoes!


Disclosure: OXO Good Grips sent me a free hand-held spiralizer to test in our kitchen and to share about OXO products with our readers; however, everything I write here are my own words, my own opinion, and my own experiences.
