At least once in your life, you’ve probably heard somebody say, “It’s as American as apple pie!”
But it could’ve just as easily as been, “It’s as American as a burger, fries, and a shake.” They’re enduring icons of American cuisine. And with that kind of legacy, it’s no wonder there are so many kinds of burgers to choose from.
With so many options, you can’t go wrong (but here are a few of our favorite ways to make it very, very right):
You hear that? Wait, wait! Close your eyes to get the full effect… You’re sitting on a piazza in the heart of Tuscany with an earthy brunello di montalcino in hand. Toscano pecorino, grana padano and parmigiano reggiano cheeses flank the sides of your charcuterie board, and between the mouth gripping tannins in your wine and unequivocal Italian street music filling the air, you inhale that sweet ‘n salty moment in time… Alright, alright—enough drooling. Come on back. This Sundried Tomato & Basil Burger will not bring a piazza to your town. But hey, why not dream big and for a quick moment bring the feels of Italy into your next meal? Eccellente!
This traditional burger is a “how’d I ever live without it” kind of burger. Here’s the deal: Pick high-quality buns and very fresh lettuce, slice your onion super thin, and for Pete’s sake, make your own damn special sauce!
Get a little south-of-the-border heat with jalapeño, cilantro, and salsa. This one toes the line between the sweet n’ spicy sides of life.
