Time To Celebrate National Burger Month! Churrasquitos, Shooters and Sausages, Crazy Burgers Galore!

It’s National Burger Month!

So of course, it is time to celebrate! Here are some crazy concoctions to help you step up to the celebratory plate!

Matt Antrim’s KC Smokey Burger!

Matt sent me this picture on Facebook – he was enjoying the KC Smokey Burger on 39th Street in Kansas City! As Matt said: “YUMMY! The burgers come with their own mini “smoker” that’s served right on your plate. Amazing and delicious!”

Thanks for sharing, Matt! Now, onto some more finger-licking-good concoctions!


The Billionaire Burger at Holstein’s at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas is made with Kobe beef, foie gras, port onion marmalade, frisee and truffle mayo.

Don’t worry: even with the name, it’s only $28. That’s right: $28 for a Billionaire’s Burger – eat like a King!


Burger King’s new “Churrasquito” sandwiches look a little like the McBaguettes McDonald’s is selling in France. These Argentine sandwiches feature what’s described “Creole-style meat”—two long and flat pieces of beef like skirt steak for fajitas.

There are three varieties: Churrasquito Tradicional (with cheese, lettuce, tomato and mayo); Churrasquito Patagónico (with grilled onions); and Churrasquito Pampeano (with ham and cheese on the beef).

And of course, they try to make it sexy to eat:

The Luther Rory!

This is courtesy of the fun and feisty “This Is Why You’re Huge” website:

A one third pound of sirloin topped with two slices of white American cheese, four strips of bacon, peanut butter, between two Krispy Kreme donuts. Dig In!

The Unforgiven Challenge Burger!

The Unforgiven Challenge Burger from the Red Rock Saloon in Las Vegas knows how to rock it!

Not much to it – just a 1/2-lb burger topped with cheese and bacon, a deep fried chicken breast, and another 1/2-lb burger topped with cheese, bacon, an egg, lettuce, tomato and onion strings.

Add a basket of fries and 6 T.C.B. ghost pepper wings and you have a meal!

Time To Sausage Up! The Rosamunde Sausage Grill – San Francisco

A Hamburger Today has a great writeup on the Rosamunde Sausage Grill – who serve sausages out of a space that’s more booth than restaurant. Most days, you can choose amongst 12 or so sausages, but on Tuesdays—and Tuesdays only — Rosamunde adds a cheeseburger to its menu.

Please ignore the slightly gruff staff, the lack of seating, and the limited availability. You want to try this burger.

The Shooter’s Sandwich!

Again, thanks to AHT: This is not just a sandwich, it’s a veritable internet sensation. Most web-goers were first introduced to it by Tim Hayward of the Guardian on April 7, 2010 when he posted a slideshow detailing its construction.

Basic directions: Hollow out a loaf of sourdough bread. Fill with steaks, mushroom, and onions. Cover, wrap in paper, and press the hell out of it overnight with a heavy weight. Slice into pie-like wedges for consumption the next day.

The sandwich was supposedly invented during Edwardian times as a means for chefs to be able to sleep in when their masters had an early morning of hunting. They’d make the sandwich the night before, wrap them in paper, and press them. The next morning, you’d end up with a perfectly portable, edible meal.

As a means for sandwich making, it’s pretty awesome. It helps fillings meld, it creates a much neater package than a traditional sandwich, and let’s face it, it’s pretty freaking cool. It has been described by more than one person as the world’s greatest sandwich.


So May is your month to burger up! You can go big….

Or bigger if you must…

Or grab some friends and go BIGGEST!

No matter what you put in your mouth, you’ll like the taste…

To quote the classic film “Phantom Of The Paradise: “Tasty Winslow, tasty!”
