It’s Sunday Morning, and that can only mean one thing: last night, I made and ate a hamburger. Specifically, a burger featured on the hit series Bob’s Burgers.
Poblano Picasso Burger [S2:E3 “Synchronized Swimming”]
About the Episode – Bob’s bought a soft serve ice cream machine, hoping to cash in on the upcoming summer rush, but has trouble keeping the customer’s happy. Meanwhile, the kids have had enough of PE, and convince the “highly suggestible” Mr. Frond to authorize an “Independent Study” in . . . (wait for it) . . . synchronized swimming. When the two story lines meet, Bob might lose Team Soft Serve at a crucial moment, and they turn to Linda for help. But, will she?
The board is hard to see in this screen grab, but trust me, it’s there.
About the Burger– This bacon burger was topped with a Brussels sprouts and pistachio mixture (the sprouts being browned in the bacon grease and the pistachios lightly toasted with them for the last minute or so of cooking) and some sour cream.
Krystal liked this burger. She’s a fan of Brussels sprouts and said I did a good job with them. She liked the textures as well, the way the slight crunchiness of the pistachios worked with the soft sprouts and the firm burger.
I didn’t know what to expect with this burger. Something had me convinced I didn’t like Brussels sprouts, even though I can’t actually remember ever eating them. But they smelled so good while I was cooking them that I only needed a moment before taking the plunge. I, too liked this burger, but only gradually. The taste wasn’t as strong at first, but then became more prominent the more I ate.
Overall, we liked this burger as a good, decent alternative to the mundane cheeseburger, but felt it lacked a certain something to really make it stand out.
Come back next week, when we’ll try the “It’s Fun to Eat at the Rye-MCA” Burger
