The best burger is fresh ground new york strip groung with applewood smoked bacon and black truffle peelings-top with a melted cranberry stilton
Best burger joints: Hodad's in Ocean Beach, Burger Lounge in La Jolla, Smashburger in Del Mar, Best tried and true burger: In and Out Burger, animal style.
Start with 70/30 hamburger meat, add in a shot of worcestershire sauce, chipotle tabasco, garlic, ground mustard, and salt. Grill over high heat til you get a good crust, and then move to a cooler part of the grill to finish cooking to a nice medium. Top with sliced cheddar or pepper jack.
Toasted buns, ketchup, mustard, red leaf lettuce, tomatoes, wafer thin red onion slices, and home made dill pickle slices.
Heaven on a bun.
Louie's Lunch in New Haven CT...best burger in the world.
When I was in high school in the fifty's,, we would buy hamburgers like,, bun, less than 1/4 lb meat, lettuce, tomato, pickle mayo, a handful of fries and the older tasting coke, ( not today's),, and most boy's weighted less than 140lbs..then go to some remote area with a girl and spend a couple of hours working off the calories in the back seat.. ..them days was the best ever..
Red robins......dallas county...the best!
Start with a whole bulb of roasted garlic. Spread all the garlic on one toasted onion bun. Fry your burger, topped with sharp white cheddar, then place between bun. Cut in half, dip in au jus. Simple, and mind blowing goodness!
Sounds good, but did you manage to kiss anyone for a month?
Good question, Truth. The trick is to make one for her too! And we get complete protection from vampires.
I can beat your burger – try turkey burger with diced onion, little bit of green salsa and Frank's Red Hot sauce. Mix all this into patties and then top with swiss and put on english muffin (cooking the patties obviously – not to be eaten raw).
MMMMMMM, mmmmm sho' is gooood!
My cheeseburger is better than your cheeseburger, fatty.
MMMM I'd hit that! HA!
The Juicy Lucy is absolutely my favorite!!!
Take 2 patties, put cheese in the middle, fold together the sides and cook...grill, panfry or whatever floats your rootbeer float. lol
As for restaurants... In New Orleans there's nothing like PORT-O-CALL!!!!!!!! undoubtedly!!!
I am so mad at myself–hamburger cravings are not relieved by Jack in the Box, and that's where I stopped off last night. The menu lies, it lies!–it looks nothing like the pic, and the taste? Feh. I need to make my own, that is the only solution. The secret is to make your burger in your own kitchen, as pink or as burnt as you like, with all the yummy extras. I'm reading with great appreciation your recipes.
I agree... and don't forget to toast the hamburger buns! :)
I start from INSIDE the burger. To each pound of ground beef I add a panade made by cutting 2 slices of bread into cubes and dousing them with 2 tbsp of milk. That keeps moisture globules in the burger and prevents meat proteins from linking together making the meat chewy or rubbery. I also add other goodies and use an instant-read thermometer to make sure the interior reaches 160F.

Best burger ever: secret ingredient – buffalo meat instead of beef. Mix 1 lb of bison with two tbsp Frank's red hot and a couple of pinches of minced garlic and shape into two or three patties. Grill as preferred. Dice an onion and a handful of mushrooms and caramelize in balsamic vinegar. When onions and mushrooms are caramelized, melt three slices of sharp cheddar cheese with them, stirring with balsamic to create cheese/onion/mushroom sauce. Immediately spoon sauce onto patties and place in a fresh onion roll. Best. Burger. Ever.
You got that right – bison is awesome. Doesn't need that much doins' tho, IMHO. A moment's grace on the grill and enjoy.
I agree, abuffalo is pretty good. Have you ever tried moose? I actually like that a little better.
best burger. nashville. browns is simple and brilliant. or fancy burger up. fancy is local beef, bentons bacon, homemade roll/bun, and Jack Daniels maple ketchup. soooo gooood
SirBiddle, I have to give you a big thumbs up on both the grilled cheeseburgers and saying goodbye to the McDummy.
Best burger, imho is a bacon cheeseburger with swiss on an toasted and buttered english muffin.
And in other news, it a GREAT day in the MHC with Josh mcDummy gone! LONG overdue!
Best cheese burger ever. Make a grill cheese with three different cheeses (me, pepperjack, mozz, prov), open grilled cheese, insert burger, lettuce, toms, onion and favorite condiment (mayo and bluecheese), close, cut and enjoy. Grilled cheese burger is so good.
That does sound good!
