geee...took me forever to read through this thread! I like my burgers many, many ways. A place in town uses a toasted potato roll, then your burger, a slice of grilled ham, grilled onion, tomato, lettuce and thousand island dressing.

Just came onto the site, so I don't know if anyone mentioned this but, I remember homemade burgers used to taste so good. I finally figured out that we used to have high fat hamburger before the days of low fat. It must have been 27-30% fat way back when. And lo and behold when I tried a higher fat burger, hamburgers were tasty again, like I remembered them.

Yep, they sure are good. And let's face it, it's not like we eat them everyday and when are of a certain age :oops: and we want a burger we want it the way we remember it!!!! And I had to stand beside my mother so she wouldn't squish the juice out of the burgers. Used to drive me nuts! LOL

Fry a hamburger in butter. Gets a bit greasy, but it tastes good!

Depends on how OLD you mean!

I did hang out in that part of the woods quite often, but it's not ringing a bell. Where was it? Near Deli Haus? The Rat? IHOP?

Oh, Gosh, Jenny - This was in the late '60's, early 70's! Um, If I can remember, it was within walking distance of the Lahey Clinic - other than that, I don't really remember much about what was around it. Sure was good, tho!

Off topic, I know - did I ever mention (on that 'other' board) that I used to work at Durgin Park, down in Haymarket? LOL, lots of fun stories there!

my favorite burger is a not-to-lean one with either bleu cheese or swiss, maybe some sauteed onions, definately tomato, lettuce, and potentially pickles, mayo, ketchup, mustard....
kinda just depends on what you're hungry for...

I like to stuff my hamburgers with mashed roasted garlic clove and shallot and add gorgonzola. They are really moist and tastes wonderful.

Also, like to stuff with roasted pablamo or pasilla peppers chopped and guyere cheese.

Top burger with bacon and pineapple.
