Rare. Which is why we ground our own.

You don't know what they have ground into it...I guess better safe the sorry.

I recently ground my own beef for burgers for the first time. Used tenderloin and sirloin. I did it in batches in the food processor. It was easy enough but not something I'd get involved in all the time.

Normally, I eat a burger medium because as mentioned, who knows where that cow has been. But grinding it myself, it was rare all the way, bay bee.
It was magnificent.

Medium

whole wheat bun, toasted
small spreading of Miracle Whip
dijon or spicy brown mustard
sharp cheddar slice (cold, not melted)
romaine lettuce
tomato slice
fresh ground pepper

Yum! I want a burger now

I also made "stuffed" burgers once, where you mold the ground beef patty around a chunk of gorgonzola or some other blue cheese. Yum!!! Very good.

Port o' Call, French Quarter

On Esplanade, there is a bar called Port o' Call. Locals hang out there, tourists wait hours to get in. (Luckily, the quarter has that 'go cup' policy). Anyway, my boyfriend and I go to Port o' Call everytime we are in the Quarter, regardless of how long we have to wait.
This is how they serve their burger:

You get a choice of cheese-cheddar, american or swiss
You can have fried onions, sauteed mushrooms, lettuce, tomato

They don't do french fries. The do baked potatoes. Big, hot, fluffy baked potatoes. You can have those with either butter, shredded cheddar, sour cream, bacon, or green onions...any combination.

It's almost mandatory that you wash that back with an Abita beer.

If we ever do a poll on where the best burgers are, I'd vote for Port o' Call every day of the week and with as many aliases as I could get away with.

Someone mentioned stuffing the cheese in the burger...there is a place in Westwood, NJ called the Ironhorse (its next to a railroad stop) that stuffs the cheese in the burger. Magnificent.

A half-pound of 85% lean beef grilled medium-rare.
A bulkie roll, thickly spread with Hellman's mayonnaise on both sides.
Tomato, lettuce, raw onion, salt and pepper.

Serve with fresh french fries and more Hellman's mayonnaise for the fries.
