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.

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! We have recently lost our beloved dog 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, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. 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…
