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 Curry On My Wayward Bun Burger [S6:E14 “The Hormone-iums”]
About the Episode – Tina lands a role she’s coveted for years, but when it threatens her chances of ever kissing Jimmy Jr., she must decide what her heart really wants.
At the restaurant, Linda tries to build her entrepreneurial empire with her junk box creation, the Wine Shoe.
About the Burger– This was a cheddar cheese burger seasoned with curry powder, salt, and pepper and served on a wheat Kaiser roll with lettuce and mango chutney. Garlic and black pepper steak fries and ice cold root beer rounded out the meal nicely.
This burger was different than the other burgers we’ve done in that it isn’t in the Bob’s Burgers cookbook we’ve been using! Krystal noticed the name on a poster of the “Burgers of the Day” and was drawn to it as a fan of the TV series Supernatural.
So, to the store we went. Obviously, there’s be curry, and into the basket went a can of curry power. We’re fans of cheese, but – sadly – our local markets don’t carry Indian-style cheeses like paneer. Instead, we chose an imported, oak-smoked Cheddar to represent the English Men of Letters. We also found a mango chutney to spread on our rolls, which we decided would be wheat Kaiser rolls to represent the show’s dark nature and themes from German folklore.
Krystal LOVED this burger and said I’d found the right amount of seasoning. In her opinion, it’s the second-best burger we’ve had; the first being the burger with fig jam “A Good Manchego is Hard to Find”.
I liked the burger more than I thought I would – I was skeptical about the Kaiser roll working with the rest of the burger. I may have been able to flatten the burger more to fill out the roll, and in the future I may use lamb instead of beef, but it was definitely worth
Come back next week, when we’ll try a new, as-yet-to-be-determined burger!
