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.
The Hit Me with Your Best Shallot Burger [S1:E10 “Burger Wars”]
About the Episode – Mr. Fischoeder – Bob’s very rich and even more eccentric landlord – threatens to end Bob’s lease, having been made an attractive offer by Bob’s restaurant nemesis, Jimmy Pesto (who want’s to put his restaurant’s gift shop in Bob’s space). The family has two days to bring in enough customers to pay the rent of in full, or the lights will go off on the Belcher’s family business. Will a flyer campaign, live music, slow dancing, and potato voodoo save the day?
About the Burger– This burger was seasoned with thyme, salt, and pepper and topped with caramelized shallots seasoned with rosemary and sage and my lemon juice/pomegranate molasses vinegar substitute.
Tip: rather than shell out almost ten dollars for individual packages of the herbs, see if you store carries a “poultry seasoning” herb blend. I was able to find all three herbs in one package for under $2.00.
The bottom bun was piled with lettuce, and the top bun spread with a butter-and-herb goat cheese.
Krystal liked the burger, but said it needed something crunchy to even out the textures. She put the fries on her burger and all was well.
I liked the burger, too, but felt I could have put more cheese on the buns.
Overall, we gave this burger
Come back next week, when we’ll try a new, as-yet-to-be-determined burger!
