All vegans and vegetarians, be warned. We are about to get vulgar! It is National Hamburger Day! One of the most American things you can put on your plate is a bun with a hunk of meat in the middle. Whether you want bison, venison, turkey, chicken, bean curd, or all-American beef, the patty is the essence of this delectable, juicy, staple meal! A flexible dish, to be gourmeted or trailer parked, you can top it with everything under the sun, even gold flakes (if you are willing to pay for it). Talk about the Midas Touch! Here is a list of some of the most expensive burgers I’ve ever seen. Which would you try?
Today, don’t just eat a burger! Celebrate by getting creative and down right stupid with those toppings. Have a burger smorgasbord party! Guests can bring a beverage (you know I mean alcoholic) and a topping, the host can supply the meat.
My ideal burger would be between a toasted sourdough bun. A patty made with the best piece of beef pre-seasoned wth salt, pepper, and jalapeno juice. It would be topped with grilled halloumi cheese, grilled pineapple, and warm applesauce that has been boiled with bacon. Also, piled on that juicy piece of meat would be grilled sweet pickles, butter lettuce, cold tomatoes, and an easy fried egg under a piece of melted brie, and finally, it would be sauced with a hint of Naptown crab sauce. Yummm, yummmm, yum. At least I think so.
Today, eat a good burger and watch Goodburger or Eddie Murphy Raw!
