Quick Bites: Unforgettable Burger

Keeping dinner "interesting" isn't easy.

Last summer, our friends Heather and John had us over for burgers. But not just any burgers.....super-amazing, uniquely interesting, fan-tab-ulous burgers!

Yesterday I was looking at my organic ground beef burgers defrosting and I thought, how boring. But then, images of those magnificent burgers they made for us last summer flashed into my head, and I immediately recalled the unforgettable, yet easy, ingredients for this decadent meal.

Here goes:
4 beef patties (you can use turkey or veggie burgers too)
4 kaiser rolls (nice, soft, squishy ones)
4 fried eggs
4 slices of Muenster cheese
4 slices of Canadian bacon (or you can go a little crazy and use pork roll or Taylor ham)
4 dollops of guacamole
salt and pepper as desired
Prepare the eggs and Canadian bacon (the slices shrink so feel free to use 2 or 3 per burger). Then cook your burgers well and melt a slice of cheese on top of each burger.
Arrange as follows:
On the bottom half of the roll start with your fried egg.

Next is the Canadian bacon, then burger with cheese.

 Then smear some guacamole on the top half of the roll.

Place it on top of your "tower of deliciousness", and you have now gone from "ordinary burger" to "gastronomic experience"!!!!!!!!!
I served it with Veggie Straws, deli pickles, and Birch Beer. How easy was that? (So whadda ya think?)  If you have a favorite burger with interesting toppings, please, share your secrets with Fifi.......


  1. This looks AWESOME. Sounds like "the best darn guacamole" would be perfect on this! :)
    Another good burger combo is beets, goat cheese, pine nuts and bacon. Mmmm...

  2. Wow Veronica, That sounds redonkulously good! I must do a post about that unique burger sometime soon..... thanks!

  3. Had a burger in Sydney with a fried egg and sliced beets the diameter of the burger (or as they say, "beetroot"). Another great combo!! But don't wear a white shirt. :)

  4. Mmm, I love beets... and I don't wear white shirts!! Perfect. Thanks, Ang
