What’s on your all-star fantasy cheeseburger?

August 7, 2013

Here's a lunchtime thought exercise for everyone: Imagine an all-star cheeseburger created using the best ingredients from the best burgers you've ever eaten. What would you put on it?

Here's one: Take a bun from Mintwood Place, top it with Palena's patty, give it a splash of Shack Sauce, Central's potato discs, a fried green tomato from Burger Tap & Shake and smoked mozzarella from the Scion Burger. And a fried egg on there too, because it doesn't have enough cholesterol yet. Then, for good measure, throw in an order of Cajun fries from Five Guys and a marshmallow shake from Good Stuff Eatery.

Got an ingredients list of your own? Mentally assemble your all-star megaburgers (local ingredients only, please) and share them in the comments. The more outlandish, the better.
