    That is why I said put the salad on the side. Far less messy, and you do not need to open your gape like a hippo.

    Actually, 5 brothers makes a pretty decent burger bobbys.

    And yes Skip, I will admit to eating many Whoppers. Telling a few too.

    I am pretty basic. 85% lean beef, normally pan fried because it isn't worth firing up the grill for a single burger (my wife won't eat beef). Served on toasted multi grain bread with a bit of mayo, dijon mustard, tomato and sliced dill pickles. If I put cheese on the burger I use either Jarlsberg for a conventional burger or Cambozola for an exotic burger. This has got me hungry for a burger, but unfortunately we are having paella for dinner.

    What do I care what you do. Or eat?

    The op asked for an ideal burger, and I described mine. If you have problems beyond that, I believe you know what to do.

    If buying burgers, I’ll go to a local place that’s been there for 60+ years, on the third generation of the same family, or a local joint across town.

    Personally, though I have preferences, I’ve known real hunger, so I eat food, and I’m generally not rude nor picky about it. But I can also do without.

    Peace,
    Robert

    Well the paella was made with local ingredients - we substituted lobster for the shrimp. That brings up the local burger substitute.

    Lobster chopped up and mixed with just a bit of mayo and lemon juice served on a hot dog bun with cole slaw on the side. We eat that too often in August when my five recreational traps produce about 40 lobster a week.

    But that's part of the fun!

    What are you doing about it?

    Now you're talking. I don't understand why you can't find a "lobstah roll" in this part of the world to save your life.

    What are you doing about it?

    .
    Fast food hamburgers ALL suck.

    If I have a hamburger that is not homemade it is only one made at a bar and grill (that's a pub to you members of the commonwealth). And I am DAMN picky about where I eat. I like the hamburger made by the Wonder Bar in Milan, Ohio (Thomas Alva Edison's birthplace). It is a two-beer burger... meaning they usually wait to serve your burger until you have finished your first beer.

    A good fresh lobster roll is a wonderful thing - especially kept simple the way you describe. I am envious of friends who have traps out. 40/week is amazing though!

    Is the Maine shrimp catch still basically collapsed? I remember catching bazillions off Matinicus back in the 70's. But then I remember getting enough clams for 4 people to pig out in 30 minutes too...1

    To tie it back to burgers, I'd bring 20 lbs of burger out to Matinicus & throw a barbecue. I was popular - as crummy burger was $5/lb. in the early 70's out there & I'd get good meat.

    The best burger ever.... contains no beef!

    1 pound of ground pork, nothing fancy, with a couple chipotles chopped up and added in with some adobo and minced garlic.

    Brown up in a pan till almost done, add a slice of muenster cheese and a splash of water and cover for a few seconds.

    Stack the patty on a toasted Hawaiian roll with mayo, sliced avocado and tomatillo, and a little cilantro.

    I will eat two for dinner and then head for the fridge around midnight to eat a cold patty right out of the container.

    That is a sweet looking burger. Assembled correctly.

    I find this makes eating any burger less messy, and I have made it my standard practice for all burgers that have bun heels and crowns. Another great option is doing away with the bun entirely and wrapping the burger in a suitably curved section of a head of iceberg lettuce.
