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.
Shut Up and Swiss Me Burger [S8:E8 “V for Valentine-detta”]
About the Episode
When Jimmy Jr. breaks Tina’s heart, Linda tries to cheer her up with a girls night out on Valentines Day, leaving Bob and Gene to use a “Kissing Koupon” for a night of trapeze. Hijinks ensue.
About the Burger
While many of the other burgers I’ve made before have come from the Bob’s Burgers Cookbook, this was a recipe of my own invention.
I used this recipe for garlicky Swiss chard.
I felt this burger would benefit from a variety of cheeses. In this case I already had some Jarlsberg from a previous recipe and settled on an Appenzeller at our local market. Any kind of Swiss cheese would work, so use what you like.
I grated about a half cup of each and tossed well to mix.
We liked this burger, though I did send a wave of pepper smoke through the house while sautéing my chard. Be careful!
The flavors and textures worked really well for us, and we gave the burger
Due to our convention schedule, I won’t be cooking another Bob’s Burgers burger for at least two weeks. But never fear! When I return, we’ll try a new, as-yet-to-be-determined burger!
