THE WAY I SEE IT- BY KFLW’S JASON POLLOCK                                     5-1-2018

 

MAY IS HAMBURGER MONTH AND I RECENTLY READ ONE OF THOSE POPULAR “BEST OF” ARTICLES. IT WAS A GUIDE TO THE BEST BURGER IN EVERY STATE. REALLY? IT’S A BURGER. I DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU, BUT I’VE NEVER HAD A BAD ONE. IN FACT, I WOULD SAY THE ONLY BURGER I DIDN’T LIKE WAS THE ONE I DIDN’T GET TO EAT. IT DOESN’T TAKE MUCH TO PLEASE ME, BUT LET’S EXPLORE THIS A BIT MORE.

A BURGER IS GENERALLY MEAT OR, IN A PINCH, GROUND TURKEY. ANYTHING OTHER THAN THAT AND I’VE LOST INTEREST. PUT THAT SLAB OF MEAT BETWEEN ANY KIND OF BREAD OR BUN, TOASTED OR NOT, AND MAYBE TOSS ME SOME KETCHUP AND THAT’S ALL I NEED.

THE THEME THESE DAYS SEEMS TO BE, PILE IT HIGH. THAT’S ALL FINE, BUT ALL THOSE OTHER TOPPINGS ARE JUST GONNA FALL OUT, USUALLY ON MY SHIRT, AND MAKE A MESS AND MY MOUTH ISN’T THAT BIG ANYWAY. IF IT TAKES A STEAK KNIFE JAMMED THROUGH TO HOLD A BURGER TOGETHER, WELL, THAT’S JUST NOT FAIR TO ME OR MY SERVER. I’M NOT SURE ABOUT BRIOCHE BUNS, ARTISAN BREADS, AND YOUR GRILLED CHEESE OR GLAZED DONUT HALVES. WHEN I WAS A KID, A BURGER WAS BETWEEN TWO SLICES OF WHITE BREAD, TOASTED ON FANCY NIGHTS.

FINALLY, HOW SHOULD IT BE COOKED? FRY IT ON A FLAT TOP, GRILL IT, BAKE IT, STEAM IT, I DON’T CARE. NONE OF THAT MATTERS TO ME AS LONG AS IT’S COOKED. I’M NOT EVEN THAT CONCERNED ABOUT THE MEAT. BEEF, PORK, BISON, TURKEY, HEY, MAYBE EVEN VEGGIE. IT’S ALL GOOD TO ME! THE BEST BURGER IN EVERY STATE? IT’S THE BURGER THAT I ATE!
