Adam Fleischman invented the Umami burger in 2009 after figuring out that one of the main tastes that diners love in burgers and pizza is umami, the fifth taste popular in Japanese cuisine. In order to play up that flavor in the Umami Burger, toppings like an aged Parmesan crisp, oven-roasted tomatoes, shiitake mushrooms (naturally high in umami), and caramelized onions accentuate the taste, while a Portuguese bun holds it all together while adding texture.
The burger patty is seasoned with Fleischman's Umami "Master" Sauce, which includes seaweed, tamari, and miso, and his Umami "Dust," a secret mixture that includes konbu and dried mushrooms, as well as some salt and pepper. To bring it altogether, Umami ketchup kicks up the flavor with added fish sauce and mushrooms. The combination of all of the ingredients creates a hint of Japanese cuisine that’s thrown into a classical American burger.

Ketchup is one of Amercia's favorite condiments so you may be thinking, if it ain't broken, why fix it? We're not trying to fix it , although we are suggesting a little oomph to our beloved sauce. Variety is the spice of life! Thanks to chef Duran from The Food Networks' s Ham on the Street and TLC's Ultimate Cake Off, we have a bold ketchup recipe to mix things up a bit. The spice we're adding is madras curry powder. The piquent peppery flavor it provides to ordinary ketchup will surely have your guests take notice (in a good way) this barbecue season.
This recipe combines the powder with 100% natural store-bought ketchup but if you're feeling more ambitious, you can make homemade ketchup and then add whatever spices to really jazz up an otherwise typical condiment.

A frequent end-of-breakfast indulgence for me is making sure to slop up my bacon with the extra syrup and ketchup left on my plate (yes, I have ketchup with my eggs, and I definitely dip my bacon in syrup). When prompted with a maple syrup theme this week for Recipe SWAT Team, I couldn't help but think of ketchup, and decided to spare everyone else the joy of my little ketchup-bacon-and-syrup secret, instead opting to try making this duo into a marinade for chicken. The result? A pretty sweet, and delicious, barbecue sauce. Try it for yourself (and maybe add some hot sauce).
