The All-American Burger

This hamburger. Is. Outrageous. (Sorry, I simply ended up consuming one. Short of breath. Looking for a snooze. Perhaps a Coke? Heeeere comes the food coma!)

I was presented to this monstrosity though the NPR column Sandwich Monday. Considered that I’m everything about the one-liners as well as word play heres, their funny take on a brand-new sandwich weekly is something I eagerly anticipate at the beginning. Some are simply nasty– I’m checking out you, power bar sandwich– yet once in a while they include one that ignites my rate of interest, in spite of being a self-proclaimed sandwich hater.

So below we are, The All-American Burger. (This is becoming a really patriotic week on the blog site, huh?) Not one, yet 2 smoked cheese sandwiches, a hamburger patty, bacon and also sautéed onions (I utilized shallots). While the initial from the Saloon Steakhouse in Chicago includes a slick of “cook’s unique aioli,” I simply could not bring myself to consisting of the exact same in my variation. Presume what? It had not been missed out on– the hamburger ended up marvelously oily also in its lack.

Would certainly you provide this a shot– or is it simply way also over the top?
