This is Almost IT.

I'm not even kidding. I almost have The Perfect Burger. ALMOST. It's killing me. I have the burger part down.

80 - 20 Hamburger
Finely Chopped Onion
Garlic Powder
Old Bay
Seasoning
Season Salt
Cheese
and Pineapple.

No. I am not
kidding. I make burgers with pineapple in the middle. And they are delicious. You make one patty nice and thin and stick a pineapple ring, or pineapple bits with sharp cheese in the middle then throw another patty on top. It is Teh Delicious-ness. Trust me. Make them. But don't use regular hamburger buns, they don't have the power to withstand the juicy-goodness that is a pineapple burger. Use a hard roll. A Portuguese Roll, or Toasted French bread. Something dense.

Then I have a wonderful condiment. It is also the delicious-ness. But not quite right for the burger. It's almost it, but not quite.

1/2 of a 16 oz package of Bacon. Whatever kind you like.
Fry that shit up. Save the grease.

-DO NOT BURN YOURSELF. USE A LONG HANDLED FORK DUMMY.
-Shaddup Asshole. I burned myself.

1 puff bag of pre-made Coleslaw. (Yes, I cheat.)
1 1/2 onion. I used a Mouli to slice mine. Make it thin and long cut like coleslaw.
And I stoled the dressing from this recipe. OOOOO! TO DIE FOR.

But just this part:

In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, vinegar, and sugar. Season with salt and pepper. Stir the egg mixture into the skillet with the warm bacon grease. Mix in the diced bacon and flour, and whisk for about 1 minute, until thickened to the consistency of salad dressing.

Then, while it was hot, I poured it on the Coleslaw mixture I made and tossed it. As Homer would say

"GAHHHHHHHHHHH DROOL*

I made the dressing first and mixed it and the coleslaw stuff
all up. I let it marinate in the fridge for a couple hours.

When I was ready for dinner I made up my burgers and cooked them on my George Foreman Grill. If you are cooking them on an actual grill you need to know, set the heat low to medium. You only get one flip with a pineapple burger before they start to break apart. I assembled my burger and it was really good. I really enjoyed the vinnegrett flavor against the slightly sweet, slightly greasey flavor of the burger. Unfortunately the burger flavor manages to over take the coleslaw flavor by the end of the burger. In my opinion. Y
ou make them and tell me if I'm crazy. Please? I was also thinking a little celery seed in the coleslaw stuff, or maybe sunflower seeds, but that's not what it's missing.

You make 'em.

Tell me what you think.

Please?

I make Rachel Ray’s BBQ chicken burger with slaw and my hubby LOVES it. It’s his favorite thing I cook right now. I told him about your pineapple burger w/ slaw and he is totally about it so I am sure I will be trying it soon. I’ll let you know how it comes out.
But MY favorite burger is a mushroom infused burger. I stole the actual burger part from this Rachel Ray recipe,

Except I used all baby portabellas, and onions and garlic instead of a shallot. As for the pan gravy, I do not use that at all. Instead I make a garlic mayo, which is just mayo, garlic, and coriander. I liberally spread the mayo on an ONION pita and put the large juicy burger inside. Trust me it is heaven! Yummm...
 
Since I wasn't invited over for this wonderfulness I'm totally going to come over to your house and sit on your couch in nothing but spandex shorts... and possibly a mesh shirt!
 
Thanks Sunny! That garlic mayo sounds like it's to die for!

Andy you know better! I'd not feed other people untried food-stuffs. I have to first make sure it's acceptable to the pallet before I force it on my friends. I don't want people talking about my poor cooking abilities!
 
1/2 teaspoon of pomegranate or raspberry gourmet mustard. *grin*
 
You made me drool last night when I read this so we made them tonight.
My son ate 3.....he's 17.
All I changed was adding dijon to the slaw, otherwise, thank you! We have a new fav in the house.
 
THREE???? HE ATE THREE?? I must be on the right track! Lets all say Woot!! shall we?
