Merder Bergers!

Sorry for the lousy picture, I took this with my camera phone and only after I decided to blog about my meal.

I was never much of a fan of McDonald's and the rest of the fast food places burgers and for some reason my experiences with their burgers soured me on buying burgers in any restaurant.

But lately I've rediscovered the wonders of a diner, bar or local fast food hamburger. For the same price you pay for a burger meal in any of the fast food chains, you can get a real burger in most diners, local fast food place or bar.

Wheeler's bar in Brooklyn has a great burger.

But Chicken Masters of Sheepshead Bay has a really great burger. Vinnnie's "bergers" For $6.49 you get a "Char Broiled, old fashioned freshly ground not frozen 7 oz beef berger" with fries, lettuce and tomato" It is cooked to order and is damn tasty.

But yesterday, I decided it was time to try a "Merder Berger." Same meat patty but with chopped pickled hot peppers mixed into the meat. Spicy, juicy, hand ground and formed and flame broiled. Now that's an outstanding berger!

Wow. This is when I wish you had your real camera. I'm using my imagination to simulate the delciousness of melted cheese and spicy, char broiled beef. Throw some well done bacon on this puppy and you're in serious business. This is my kind of grub. Nice work.

I ate at a place called Island Burger tonight and had a bacon cheeseburger with jack and guacamole and sauteed onions, keep an eye out for that, it rivals this in delicious sloppiness.

Island Burger on 9th? I love that place, but if I remember correctly, their burgers aren't grilled.

I've got to find my camera!

The burger looks great. The best ones do come from dives, don't they?

On the potato salad question, we tested it with 5 people. 4 of the 5 said the same thing, "That's the best potato salad I've had...but it's not for this group." so we ended up going with a basic southern style potato salad, instead.

But I am making some more of the jalapeno potato salad this weekend to go with some filet's before watching the fight. I can't wait:)

In the Boston area, there is a little bar in Somerville called the Druid that has the best burger I've ever had. I had no desire to put anything like BBQ sauce on it - the meat, cheese, bun, lettuce, and tomato were perfect. Go Druid.
