Wheel, Reinvented

     It was a food cart that introduced to the idea of a stuffed burger.  For fifty years The Burger was a basic, can't-go-wrong, entree.  But somebody wanted to reinvent the wheel, and they did.  The new wheel, is the stuffed burger.  Rather like an eclair or jelly filled donut, extra goodies are hidden inside the burger patty.  At the food cart where we were introduced to the stuffed burger, Burger Guild, there was only cheese inside.  But I decided to take it to the next level.  In addition to cheese, our burgers have mushrooms and olives inside.  With bits of cheese poking out the corner, you can't wait to eat them.

     As with any burgers, by the time you've started, you've also finished.

     The burgers were excellent, though the stuffed aspect wasn't as exciting as at the cart.  The cheese stuffed did taste like a cheeseburger though.  For dessert we had grilled, home grown plums (our tree is finally producing) with ice cream.  It may be fall, but summer is still here in spirit.

  1. Black or green -- the olives?

    What cut for the burger -- chuck, sirloin, brisket, or blend?

    Some freaks say the bun matters most.

    For burgers, the devil is in the details.

    What about stuffing a burger like a fancy tenderloin -- with gorgonzola and rock shrimp or mudbugs?

    Hey -- that reminds me of the "we eat bugs" post.
