Watermelons as burgers sound like an unlikely creation but one daring chef says we should try it before we knock it.  You may become a believer after trying this recipe—you can wow your neighbors with something they probably never tried to make themselves. Rebecca Wilde would love to try it, but alas she doesn't have a grill (yet) and Wicker, well, he'd have to talk himself into it.  That's a man who likes his beef.

Now, if you are daring enough and interested in trying, here are the ingredients:

1 small orange

1 cup roughly chopped fennel fronds

1 - 2 fat garlic cloves

2 Tbsp white wine vinegar

¼ tsp kosher salt

Freshly cracked black pepper

4 slices of watermelon, 1 ½” thick

Olive oil

Cheese—preferably chevre, sheep or goat

4 square ciabatta buns or a baguette cut into sandwich-size portions

You can find all of the fine details here for the actual preparation but you’ll end up with 4 grilled watermelon patty burgers that will make your mouth water (melon)!
