| I like hamburgers. They're delicious! While they're not technically, historically "American" food, I feel pretty strongly that the US has appropriated the burger, as its own (for better or worse).|
Now, while I do enjoy a good piece of ground beef, I also like to play with the idea. A "burger", in my opinion, doesn't necessarily need to be beef. There are those that make them with pork, turkey, chicken, a combination of ground meats, sausage patties, etc. There are also burgers served with buns, open faced, packed in lettuce leaves, etc. I've also seen burgers made from fish and seafood blends. Of course, there are also a whole range of veggie burgers, including the common "Portobello" burger, where the patty is a giant tasty mushroom cap!
In this case, I'm playing with the idea, and throwing some "lamb" at the burger: Lamburger! YUM!
In this case, I'm using ground lamb, and adding a few goodies to the raw meat, just to add a little more flavor and charm. I'm also using a very simple "One Minute "Muffin" as the bun, but split in the middle, brushed with butter and toasted. Then, I'm topping it all with little more than baby greens, bacon and ... blue cheese. If I haven't said it, yet (I have!) ... I'll say it again: YUM!
