A couple of weeks back, I wrote about the naughty and nice of my favorite burgers. I asked YOU what your favorite burgers were. Here are the results:
Blue Cheese Burgers, et al: 5 Votes ♥ Shrimp Burgers: 4 ♥ Black Bean Burgers: 3 ♥ Lamb Burgers: 3 ♥ Turkey Burgers: 1 ♥ Chef Tom’s Skirt Burger 1 ♥ Burger w/Pineapple & Avocado: 1♥ Beef,Bacon & Cheddar Burger 2 ♥ Dearborn Onion and Cheese Burger 1♥ Bison Burger 1♥ Sis’s Grilled Burgers with Caramelized Onions 1 ♥Portobello Burger 1
I made a copy of the comments and blindly chose from the pile. And the WINNER of Mark Bittman’s HOW TO COOK EVERYTHING (his burger recipes, BTW, are amazing) is the most eccentric burger in the group: THE ELVIS BURGER!!!
“As gross as it may sound my favorite burger is from a local burger place and it’s called the Elvis burger. It’s stuffed with peanut butter and bananas. It sounds so gross but it’s so yummy! The peanut butter just melts into the burger!!!! Yummy!!!”
Rock on! Nicki didn’t mention bacon in her comment, but I’m thinking if bacon were added to it as well, this burger would capture the enticing flavors of salty, sweet and savory. Thanks so much, Nicki. I’ll have to try this. Please respond to my e-mail and the cookbook will be on its way. And thanks to all of you who responded. This was fun for me, I learned a bit about burger palates and I thank all of you who responded! I’ll have more giveaways in the future, for sure.
OK. Sooner rather than later. I feel compelled to give another copy of the book away. The second one I picked is from Deborah:
“My favorite burger is a good juicy turkey burger!!”
Now this is a burger I’m familiar with (see the cover shot). And the recipe was inspired by Mark Bittman. Respond to my email and I’ll also send you a book!
