Hamburgers, the quintessential fast food, loved and adored by all around the world, is a personal favorite of mine as well. Burgers are probably the food that I have tried the most, in different countries and continents. A good burger depends on many factors, the obvious one being the meat, whether chicken, beef or other. For me, beef patties are the best and one when cooked perfectly, is one of the best things to eat on Planet Earth. The best part of a beef burger is that you only have to season it with salt and pepper, the meat will take care of the rest of the flavor. Another important factor is the bun. I prefer a toasted brioche bun or a flavored bagel bun for my burger. Recently, in Austin, I had this insane beef burger at 6th Street. The burger had a jalapeno cheddar bagel bun which was out of this world. The beef burger was juicy and when paired with fresh lettuce and cheddar cheese along with the house made jalapeno ranch, it was a match made in heaven. In addition to this, you have the add-ons, the lettuce, tomato, onions, bacon, cheese, eggs….the list goes on! Sauces also play an important role in the overall taste of a burger. This homemade burger included an Angus beef burger with a pizza dough bun along with some lettuce, bacon and chipotle ranch and a sunny side up egg just waiting to be punctured! There is no recipe for this homemade burger but I will definitely have one coming up on the blog real soon!
