Crunchburger

So, I have leftover buns from the Miami burger I made, so we will just have to have burgers again.  I figured we loved the Miami Burger, why not make the first burger in the cookbook, Bobby Flay's Bold Flavors, the Crunchburger!  Before I even ate it, I didn't like 3 things: no pickles (sacrilege!), no ketchup, and American Cheese.  I hate to say that despite missing my one crucial burger ingredient, pickles, I still liked it a lot.  I have always liked potato chips on a sandwich, and I have been known to put french fries on a burger, so this wasn't a big stretch for me.  My son adored it! My poor hubby is sick, but even he managed to be somewhat enthusiastic about it;). The only change was the buns, but I was making this to use up those extra 4 buns I had left over.  Oh and I forgot the romaine, but only I missed that.
