Murder by Burger
Marble Lane

Don’t let the name of this burger scare you — the only killer on the plate of Marble Lane’s secret "off-the-menu" burger is the taste, created from a tender beef patty topped with Comté cheese, a thick, juicy slice of tomato, avocado, and a fried egg. We liked stabbing our burgers with a knife as well because we thought it helped keep the mile-high creation together.

  • 3 leaves bibb lettuce
  • 3 Ounces ketchup
  • 1 pickle spear


Season the burger patty with salt and pepper on both sides and place on the griddle. Cook to desired temperature. Top with the sliced cheese and place in the oven until the cheese melts.

Butter the cut bun and toast on the griddle. Cut the bacon in ½ and place on top of the melted cheese on the burger. Add the slice avocado and onion ring. Fill the center of the onion ring with the sautéed mushrooms and onions. Top with bibb lettuce and the top ½ of the bun. Stab a pickle spear with a steak knife and "stab" the burger with it. 

Burger Shopping Tip

Most cattle are fed a diet of grass until they are sent to a feedlot – where they are finished on corn. When possible, choose beef from cattle that are “100% grass fed” - it will be more expensive, but better for your health.

Burger Cooking Tip

The method used to cook beef is dependent on the cut. Cuts that are more tender, like filet mignon, should be cooked for a relatively short amount of time over high heat by grilling or sautéing. While less tender cuts, like brisket and short ribs, should be cooked for a longer time with lower heat by braising or stewing.
