The Week’s Most Intriguing Burgers 10/14

Can you find a list of burgers on menus recently that better displays the diversity of contemporary burgers? It was intentional, but the variety of ingredients used here is remarkable. For proteins, there are Andouille/beef, chicken, sausage, bison and lamb patties. For non-meat eaters there’s a quinoa patty. You want topping options? How about walnut-crusted Brie, truffle aïoli, grilled cabbage, beer cheese sauce, fig chutney, watercress or Cheez Whiz. Perhaps you should put one on your menu. Or your plate.
