Three Burgers for Dinner

I've eaten two burgers in one sitting before, but this was the first time I ever crossed the line to three. The triple threat felt right at the time--not so great the next morning.

We kept it simple: a couple of pounds of chuck mixed by hand with breadcrumbs, raw egg, salt, pepper, ketchup, a dash of worcestshire. The special something was the blue cheese and the grilled english muffin. Also, the condiment buffet:

I focus on the main event, the bacon, but we also had a bowl of sauteed onions, a bowl of sauteed mushrooms, sliced gherkins, a few kinds of mustard, mayo, ketchup and an arugula salad dressed with olive oil and lemon juice.

The burgers look delicious, and I applaud the choice of english muffins as bun. Getting away from the usual wonder-bread type buns can do wonders to elevate your burger. A recent favorite at our house: Cutting a ciabatta loaf into buns and then grilling them. Depending on the thickness, you might need to plane a quarter-inch or so off the inside of the bun segments to keep it from becoming too bread-heavy.

Three burgers in Head disturbs me, but does not, unfortunately, surprise me, coming from the person who went back to the Ruby Tuesday's salad bar to prove a point the hard way. It does make me want to order you up some Metamucil from
