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 Plymouth Roquefort Burger [S3:E5 “An Indecent Thanksgiving Proposal”]
About the Episode
When Mr. Fishoeder asks to “borrow” Bob’s family for Thanksgiving in order to impress a woman in exchange for several months’ rent, awkward hotel hilarity ensues.
About the Burger
This was a turkey burger mixed with finely chopped green apple and yellow onion, topped with cranberries and a cranberry reduction and Roquefort cheese, and served with sweet potato fries.
I’ve never met a cheese I didn’t like.
This burger may have been good, but the Roquefort overpowered everything. Even scraping it off and cutting the bread where the two had touched didn’t help matters.
I usually like bleu cheeses, and there was an earlier burger we did that tasted just fine, but this one was downright awful.
We’re hesitant to try it again, even with a different cheese.
We give this burger
Only because we can’t give it a negative rating.
On the plus side, I’m getting really good at making reductions.
Come back next week, when we’ll try a new, as-yet-to-be-determined burger!
