I’ll be completely honest with you all, the onion rings from last post were more of a stepping stone towards this burger… but they turned out amazing enough to be a meal of their own. Yes, I would eat a plate full of onion rings for dinner. I am not a true healthy eater yet… but I’m getting better.
I knew I couldn’t eat ALL the onion rings so I set some aside and tested my willpower. Fortunately, I had to help Alicia with some basic statistics (silly librarians), so I didn’t have to sit and stare at the plate of onion rings while cooking the burgers (otherwise, there is a good chance this post wouldn’t exist).
As for the actual burger, the deliciousness lies in the simplicity… you need nothing more than onion rings, cheese, and burger. I figured if I took the BK concept and applied some quality ingredients the results would be amazing.
I was not disappointed.
Since I no longer have a preference between turkey and beef, I just buy whichever protein is the best bargain. Turkey wins today!
While I have no preference, I’m not pretending like they taste the same… you can definitely tell the difference between the two. The day I learned how to properly season a burger is the day my hatred for turkey burgers subsided. On a side note, I still hate tofu burgers… is it possible to make these not taste horrible?
Don’t skimp on the bun either! If you’re going to take the time and effort to make a decent patty don’t go throwing it on a 10 cent roll. Go buy something from the bakery of your grocery store, they aren’t that expensive.
I’m a Sweet Baby Rays lover… what is your BBQ sauce of choice?
I love the BK’s rodeo cheeseburger… I don’t know why all burgers aren’t topped with onion rings. But these burgers are even better when they are twice the size and use quality ingredients.
