A different burger

I thought I’d try a new recipe I found for burgers tonight. Shorter Half prefers meat on his plate, and looks askance at most things in a vegetable state. He thinks anything with a root system would be be better utilized as bait for catching real food.

The burger itself was basically half sweet Italian sausage and half ground round with finely chopped apple mixed in as if you were making meat loaf. The recipe said to top the grilled burger with bacon, thin slices of apple and a dressing (sauce? topping? condiment?) made of mayonnaise, Dijon mustard and honey. I added sharp cheddar and some grilled onions to the list of extra toppings. Once Shorter Half’s brain adjusted to the new combination of flavors, he went back for more. (YAY! Something new to add to the dinner rotation.)

This was definitely “AOS” which means it didn’t suck, or as we say, has an “Absence Of Suck”. Remember folks, you heard it here first.

Oh, and that "Are you a hippe?" thing that's going around?

You are -0% hippie.
Ok, you conservative soul. Do you even believe in global warming? Loosen that necktie a little, and try some organic food. It actually does taste better. And go to a farmer's market--they're fun.

Are you a hippie?

  1. I can't bring myself to fruit my meat. And don't go talking about how tomatoes are fruit, and so ketchup and most barbecue sauce is fruit based--MY TASTE BUDS KNOW NO LOGIC!

    That said, I fully support those with an alternative lifestyle, no matter how bad in taste it is.

  2. That weeenie,

    Tell him to eat it and like it, eat it and DON'T like it or just eat it........(grin)

  3. bluesun ... "I can't bring myself to fruit my meat."

    Dude. Good for you. Not that there's anything wrong with that, or, um, anything. To each his own.
