Time To Celebrate All That Is Delicious Between Two Buns!

Did you happen to forget that May is “National Burger Month?” Well, I sure didn’t! And to show you how much I love this national month of celebration, here are five of my favorite burgers of all time!

First, let’s take a moment to respect the mighty burger…sure, you can stack it to the moon and back again, but at the end of the day, a perfect burger looks like this:

Big Mac burger

I have eaten many burgers like this one – and perfection between two buns always begin with ingredients that are fresh, perfectly balanced, and just a bit – let’s say “messy”:

The Taylors Refresher Bacon Cheeseburger

To celebrate “National Burger Month”, I wanted to showcase five examples of ingenuity, imagination and great taste in the preparation of a delicious burger – and I will begin with a new, imaginative way to look at what a burger is:

Behold The “Ramen Burger!”

Yes, I ate this thing of beauty in LA’s Koreatown district…a beautiful “ramen burger”, where the bun is ramen noodles! You see, the bun is always an afterthought – but this burger takes that bun to a whole new level!

Of course, an incredible burger like this must have amazing side dishes – like “seaweed fries!” You heard right – these fries are seasoned with salty seaweed!

It’s a unique way to say “thank you” to the burger gods…see more here:

Because we are celebrating creativity, here is another burger that I love – a burger that comes in an edible wrapper!

With the summer Olympics almost here, why not head to Brazil for a burger that comes wrapped in a wrapper – that you eat! Imagine having a burger that offers a crunchy shell – an edible wrapper that makes the burger inside a thing of beauty!

While we are overseas, let’s take a look at a burger that will never be “dry” – how can it be when it’s a “Wet Burger!”

the wet burger

Yes, in Japan they offer a “wet” burger – the bun is soaked in sauce – it’s anyone’s guess why they do this, but I would try it! See how it is prepared here:

One of my favorite burgers pays homage to one of America’s most taken for granted buyers…the Big Mac:

Yes, the “Big Mac” is “two all beef patties, special sauce lettuce cheese pickles onions on a sesame seed bun” – we all know the chant…but in Chicago, they pay homage to the Big Mac in a very unique way:

Chicago's best cheeseburger

Behold The “Big Mack Daddy!”

Big & Little’s came up with their “homage” to the Big Mac – with the “Big Mack Daddy!” This baby offers up all of the ingredients, but they do it in a super-sized way!

My friend Chris bit down on a “Big Mack Daddy” and didn’t complain at all – see the recipe here:

Finally, a burger is a burger, but THIS is a masterpiece:

The “Mac’n’Cheeseburger”!

Yes, it’s a burger topped with bacon – and mac’n’cheese! See the recipe here:
