Hi everyone! A month or so ago, Toni said she heard on the news about hamburgers made with Krispy Kreme doughnuts. Someone in CA was serving hamburgers with doughnuts at the bun. Hmmmmmmm...... really?
fast forward a couple of weeks. I am watching US of Bacon Yep there really is a show dedicated to bacon! LOL.....
anyway, I am watching the show and they start talking about a restaurant in Atlanta, GA. they serve a hamburger with donuts as the bun. What? for real?
It is based on a hamburger that Luther Van Dross loved. Now I was glued to the TV. I wanted to see what this hamburger looked like.
It looked YUMMY! So I took notes. Talked to Toni, and we decided to experiment.
So she cooked the hamburgers. she added sharp cheddar cheese slices. She also grilled the donuts. I don't think they were grilled on the show. but I think it added another layer of flavor.
I had cooked some bacon, and caramelized some onions.
And here you go! It was definitely restaurant quality. It sure isn't something I would serve frequently. It's high in calories. But let me assure you, IT'S PICKIN GOOD!!!! I mean REALLY good!
It has the sweet and salty thing going on.
So here is our take of a Luther burger.
hamburger, Toni used lean, she made the patties
doughnuts, we used Krispy Kreme
4 onions, sliced and caramelized
bacon, 2 slices per hamburger - cooked
cheese, we used sharp cheddar
BBQ sauce, it is served on the side - we used famous Dave's
there you go! if you try it, let me know. I promise, you will like it! Yum!
Our next adventure? homemade really good salsa and cookies made like Oreganos! chocolate chip cookies cooked in a miniature iron skillet.
