To me, a burger has to be a patty, lettuce, tomato, onion and mayo. Period. With many other things I can be adventurous, but not the burger.

I wish I liked 'burger. When I make the 'burger with onions and gravy, I only use 1/4 of a pound. Just enough to give it flavor. I rely more on the Better Than Bullion for the flavor than the meat. The only way I will eat 'burger, is if I get a Burger King, hold the onion. I usually will buy a Jr. Burger. The regular one is too much for me to eat. I never finish it.

Some might say that is too much

I saw a couple I'd like to make.
One was a poached burger. You have 1/4" or so of water with a pile of onions in it, steaming away, and the burger cooking alongside. The hamburger consisted of a regular bun, the burger, some onions, some horseradish and some mustard. The guys commented on how beefy and oniony the flavor was. How the burger picked up the flavors of being cooked in onion flavored water. It wasn't the prettiest burger but it sounded delicious.

And there was a griddle method of pre-making the burgers into meatballs and using a metal spatula to flatten them onto the griddle. Sort of a pushing down/sliding motion that left a very thin, quick cooking burger with edges that picked up a nice crust.

But they did have a loaded burger that caught my attention, too. A Brazilian burger. It was a ground sirloin steak with a cooked slice of ham and Swiss cheese, a fried egg, lettuce, tomato, pickles, corn and potato sticks. I think it had mayo on it. Supposedly it was authentic to what you can get in Brazil.

And on the opposite end they were in WI and there was a burger joint where you could not order a cheeseburger. They literally had no cheese at a burger joint in WI

Good series if you are into food.

He was put into induced coma, has a comminuted femoral neck fracture, which was operated the same night. He also has a broken pelvis, which needs surgical treatment within the next days, broken rips and a broken sternum. Due to this his lung is also damaged.
All that happened 400km away from Hannover. I will travel to Regensburg today. Even if I can't do anything there, it's better than sitting here and worrying.
My thoughts are with you, Cara. I don't know if you'll pick this up but I have a friend who lives in Regensburg. She's a Lutheran minister. I'm not sure if she's at home at the moment as she has been in London but if she's around I could ask her to meet with you if it would help. She's a lovely Scotswoman with grown up children who doesn't push religion down your throat and is just what one needs in a crisis. If you need her let me know.

The only way I love 'burger is in a really good home made meatloaf. And I love it in a sandwich with ketchup!
