First off, I have to admit I am a burger junkie...absolutely love them, cant cant enough of them, full fledge addict....burger junkie.
I am of the feeling that burgers end up in three basic categories...fast food, diner style and bar burger. I love all burgers but am definately the biggest fan of the bar burger. It is typically slightly thicker, grilled and juicy, served on a toasted bun and usually in the 6-8 oz range. A diner burger is usually of the thin, flattop variety and tend to be more greasy than juicy (not that there is anything wrong with that)...i dont think there is any reason to talk about fast food. Other than Five Guys and In and Out then typically suck.
My favorite buns for a burger are either a toasted english muffin or a toasted egg roll with sesame. The bun to burger ratio is crucial to me. If it is to small it just breaks down and if its too big it just hides the good stuff.
Lastly is the toppings. My favorite burger has a fried egg, cheddar cheese, thick cut smokey bacon, good pickles and shaved onion.
So here is the deal...let me know what your favorite burger is....list the style of burger you like, whats your favorite way to have it cooked (grilled, griddled, etc.), your favorite style of bun and your favorite toppings. Who evers sound the best and most tantalizing will win a "Live to Cook" tshirt.
