The Best of the Burgers
Well it has just come to my attention that we have made 42 different burgers. 42, the meaning of life the universe and everything! That can't be a coincidence since a burger has to be one of the most perfect and yummy meals ever! (perhaps the meaning of life and our existence it to appreciate the awesomeness of the burger! lol) I decided to compile a top ten list of the burgers we have made. This isn't easy. I am tempted to put as number one on the list the most recent of the outstanding burgers, but that could just be a temporal anomaly;). I am polling the family too because I am finding this to be quite a daunting task! Also, do I make sure to include one of each kind of burger?? (veggie, turkey, beef etc...) That might make it easier. Best of each type and fill in the rest of the ten of the second place ones. After much discussion we compiled a list of the top 10 (ok 11 but more on that later) Now for the biggest problem, can I order these from 1-10 in descending awesomeness? No, so these are all great and in alphabetical order. If someone put a gun to me and required me to pick my personal favorite of all these I don't know if I could pick just one, however the contenders would be the Bahn Mi (#1), the Miami (#8) and the Italian Sausage (#6) and of course a really good regular burger with everything but mustard. Ladies and gentlemen, may I present you, The Best of the Burgers!
1) Bahn Mi Burger
This is an Asian seasoned pork patty with pickled vegges, cilantro, mayo, ham and jalapenos. (insert the sound of Homer Simpson drooling here!)
2) BLT Burger with Garlicky Mayonnaise
3) Cheddar and Onion Smashed Burgers
4) Chicken Burgers with Spicy Peanut Sauce
5) Crunchy Pork Kimchi Burgers
This is a pork and kimchi patty that is coated with panko, served with wilted spinach and mayo seasoned with sesame oil and soy. This one almost made it in to the top favorites!
6) Italian Sausage Burgers with Garckly Spinach
This patty is made of Italian sausage and it is topped with the tastiest spinach, sun dried tomato pesto and provolone cheese! So good!
7) Lola Burger
The Lola burger is like a breakfast sandwich and a burger had a baby! A beef patty with a fried egg, bacon, smoky cheese and pickled onions.
8) Miami Burger
This is a half pork, half beef patty with Dijon, mayo, ham, Swiss and pickles and pressed. It's like a Cuban sandwich and a burger had a baby! Oh my!
9) Middle Eastern Lamb Burger
Sorry I don't seem to have a picture of this! We will make it again soon and take one;). The patty is lamb seasoned with onion, garlic, parsley, mint and Cayenne pepper, and it is topped with a cucumber and cumin yogurt relish.
10) Thai Curry Turkey Burgers
And for all of these recipes you can click on the Best of the Burgers label, and if you are interested in all 42 burgers you can check out the burger label.
Oh yes and I almost forgot the 11th one. I don't really consider this a burger but I guess it is since it is a hamburger steak, and my husband thought it should be included.
Bitokes A La Russe
This is a hamburger steak in an amazing cream sauce!
Well crap! I just realized that there is a burger that wasn't in the running since I had a typo in the label! It is one amazing burger and I guess I would replace the cheddar smashed ones (#3) with this one but then I would have to rearrange everything so I will just add it! This one is really amazing!
