5 Things challenge: Burgers

The 5 Things tag keeps surfacing on WordPress. I am not sure who first thought of it but I have always found it fun to do. I thought “Why not make it a weekly feature?”

5 Favourite Burgers

Now, do we use a burger as a base with additives and enhancements or is it five different types of actual burger?
Hm. Toughie, especially as we don’t eat burgers as a rule now.
But in the days when we did:

Hubby’s favourite was a Big Mac, whereas I referred the chicken sandwich, which isn’t actually a burger.

There were several Holes in the Wall burger joints open until 2am when I was single, so after a night out, it wasn’t unusual to stop for one with fries.

I loved the mushroom burger: a nice meaty patty with sliced mushrooms in a sesame bun.
Onions were optional.

Next was the pineapple burger, again on a juicy beef burger in a sesame or white bun.

Then I discovered the delights of a mushroom and pineapple burger with mayo! Piggy or what!! When I lived in the Bath area, the burger bar in the village did an amazing Hawaiian burger with a huge beef burger, pineapple, lettuce, cheese and mayo.

For a BBQ, the bacon burger was a favourite. A juicy piece of bacon molded to shape and served with pineapple or an egg on a bun of your choice, or sliced in half and served in a baguette.

You can’t beat a decent beef burger though, one with tender meat and loads of onions. Melt some sliced cheese on the top, and you’re in burger heaven.



About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I’ve never liked beef or any other red meat. I like chicken, but better still veggies.

    I like venison burgers but they’re a bit deer.

    My favorite is a Black and Blue burger – Black Angus beef with blue cheese in the center, onion straws on top on a pretzel bun…
