    What's your favorite burger?

    • Blue cheese
    • Fresh avocado
    • Jalapeño
    • Tomato
    • Lettuce
    • Sweet pickle
    • Burger
    • Bun
    • No ketchup, mustard, nor mayo, nor sauce of any kind


    I'm not too picky about what kind of burger (I'm not going to debate beef-fat ratios with anyone) or bun, but mainly I need that combination of beef, blue cheese, avocado, and jalapeño. Ideally, burgers should be grilled over charcoal outdoors at an informal gathering with family and/or friends.

    What's your favorite way to eat a hamburger?

    For the most part, I prefer plain and basic over the masterchefs masterpiece of lavishness and delight. That being said, I get picked on by uttering the words, "no cheese." That's a sin, I'm starting to think, and though it's a treat for an occasional concoction of variety, I really do enjoy a good ole plain Jane.

    However, I do like mustard, and some lettuce is nice. Throw on a pickle or two, and no happier I'll be, but a smile to another I'll adorn her with--or a pleasant thank you should it be a him.

    Avacodo on a hamburger? I don't think I've heard that ordered before. At least not around these parts. In travel, I recall a hamburger meal on the menu topping $700--it came with sides and a nice bottle of wine. Pampered was the cow--it was said in so many other words.

    Yes to the charcoal grill.

    ETA: a good heaping helping dash or three of some salt and pepper would be appreciated.

    Nothing wrong with basic.

    I became obsessed with the combination of beef and blue cheese because I didn't start liking blue cheese until adulthood (decades later and I'm still shocked that I don't hate it anymore). Avocado is not expensive and it adds a fatty-sumptuous quality to the burger (lots of fat in avocados). The chile pepper is just for the flavor punch, the tomato for sourness and the sweet pickles for, well, sweet.

    I learned to enjoy burgers without ketchup, mustard, nor any other sauce because I got put on a low salt diet after my heart attack. Having no sauce helps to reduce the total salt, and the sweet-sour-spicy combo from jalapeño, tomato, sweet pickle thing more than makes up for the lack of sauces (although the pickle & blue cheese admittedly adds a lot of salt).

    Lettuce on the bottom to maintain the integrity of the bottom half of the bun. Sweet creamy coleslaw on top. Ketchup on the side as a dipping sauce. And if they slipped a couple dill slices in there, I wouldn't complain. Cut in half for dipping efficiency.

    Bacon! You left off the bacon. Guacamole is nice.

    At home:
    - (good) bacon
    - (good) old cheddar
    - some kind of relish, either pickle, corn, or a chutney
    - some kind of spiciness

    When I'm at the specialty burger place in town, though, my go to is something like this:
    - cream cheese
    - gouda
    - peanut butter

    PEANUT BUTTER! Gross!

    A good hamburger also needs very thin slices of onion.

    It gets that reaction a lot because it's so uncommon, but it's definitely growing in popularity around here.
