...here in MI... locals like to eat chopped green olives (yes, with what passes these days for pimento). It's tasty, especially if you get it with mayo to balance out the olives.


Yeah, I loved olive cheeseburgers (chopped green olives+mayo) when I lived in MI. Have never seen that topping offered here in CA.

I don't know what kind of people would eat green olives and mayo on a hamburger, but in Wisconsin, we would have called that an Ed Gein Burger. My brother claims he likes the toppings(garbage) as he calls it, better than the meat. He could be in an ad for Carls' Jr. on sloppy burgers. Myself, I BBQ all the time for our high school games and I've reverted to simply, meat tomatoes, and onions.

Here are the details describing how I make myself my ideal hamburger.

--- Ingredients ---

Bread - Two pieces of fresh King's Hawaiian bread sliced just under an inch thick. Plaid, untoasted. I can live with Texas toast-sized (or even regular sandwich sized) white bread as a substitution, but anything other than King's Hawaiian I want actually toasted and not just plain out of the package.

Meat - A pattie about as thick as my thumb and super well done. Almost burnt on the edges. Cooked in a skillet or on a grill; NOT cooked over an open flame. No seasoning of any kind in or on the meat. None.

Tomato - Two or three slices, each about 1/4 to 3/8 inch thick.

Cheese - Slice or two of American.
Onion - Several slices of red (some people call them purple) onion. Same thickness as the tomato, and left as entire wedges; not broken up into rings.

Pickle - Take it or leave it.

Mayo - Yes. Hellmann's.

Mustard - Yes. French's or similar.

Miracle Whip - Yes.

Catsup - Yes. Hunt's only.

Salt and pepper - Yes on both.

--- Assembly ---

I start with everything 'unassembled' but laid out in front of me.

(In order from the plate up):

Slice of bread.

Layer of Mayo or Miracle Whip with a small amount of mustard mixed in with it.

One slice of cheese.

One slice/wedge of red onion.

Meat pattie.

Salt and pepper.

One slice of tomato.

One slice of cheese.

Layer of catsup.

Slice of bread.

I build it all, slice it from corner to corner making two smaller triangle-shaped burgers, and dig in. I sometimes add a little more salt as I go along, and I enjoy every bite. In fact, I enjoy making it almost as much as eating it, as you can probably tell.

Gotta go; I'm hungry!

Hahaha. I mentioned in another post that I would never be a championship winning typist. There's my proof! How about 'plain' instead of 'plaid'?

OK - Here goes:

Hand Packed Ground Chuck, Pan Griddled Med. Rare!
Heinz Ketchup, Horseradish Sauce, French's Onion Rings (the kind for casseroles that come in a can!), Jack Cheese & bacon on a Buttered and griddle-toasted hard roll.

The best part is a splash of beer on the burger just as it comes off the grill. I went to a dark little cafe in Long Island once and mistook my bottle of Amstel for the Ketchup and splashed about a half an ounce on my burger." /> It was delicious!

I usually just have onions and perhaps cheese if given the choice. I've liked hamburgs that had tomato,but I don't choose it. I also like mushrooms.

This is a hard to answer. I have had them so many ways, and I love to get creative. I'm still laughing at the "plaid" statement.

Mosty, I have a slice of tomato, lettuce, onion, mustard, and mayo. I like my burgers medium.. but not too well done. My most recent burger had sautéed onions, green pepper, and mushrooms with melted monterey jack cheese.. mmmm... I added some A1 on it. *drool* I've also had great greek burgers. You add alittle minced spinach to ground beef with an egg, tad bit lemon juice, salt and pepper. Form into patties. When the burgers are almost done, I top with some feta cheese, and put a lid or foil tent to cover until cheese starts to melt. I put burger on bottom half of a good toasted kaiser roll, slice of tomato, and some Tsatziki (sp?)--cucumber dressing. The possiblities are endless with burgers.

I get really picky about this!! Start with a bun that has some texture, not too hard but not too squishy either. I do a good sized burger in my cast iron skillet, charred outside, medium well inside. Anyone else make this sauce? Tarter sauce mixed with a little ketchup. Sort of comes out like the Big Boy sauce.Our Bob's big boy closed, but my fond memories of that burger remain. Shredded lettuce, Thin slices of raw onion, tomato and dill pickle. I really don't like experiementing and adding anything else, maybe a little mustard sometimes.

I like two different types of burgers. For just a burger, I like the meat cooked on a charcoal grill, served on a toasted buttered bun with mayo, tomato, onion, and catsup.

For an "all the way" burger, i like a thin patty, either fried or grilled, on a steamed bun with mustard, slaw, onion, and chili.

I don't like big thick burgers. What makes a good burger to me is the blending of all the flavors, not the meat overpowering all the fixins.

Hello all. When I was a little boy of 4 or 5, my mother would chop up green peppers into tiny pieces and plop them into the hamburger, then make patties out of them. My family loved them. I didn't. I never ate a hamburger for years after that. My standard toppings are tomato, lettuce, mayo and mustard. When I am in a certain mood, (don't ask me which mood that is,) I put extra pepper when cooking, then top it with mayo, tomato, and a heaping dose of chilled sauerkraut. A side of fries are a must, with a Dr. Pepper or a frosty glass of beer.

fieldthistle,I'm feeling your pain.When I was pregnant with my son and experiencing delicate stomach, we went to a cookout that promised burgers on the grill. Our host had added all sorts of stuff to the meat, eggs, A1, peppers, onion, garlic, etc. Now I know this is some folks idea of a great burger, but not me! I couldn't eat it.
I just want to taste the meat and fixings on a bun.
What he served was really a grilled meatloaf!

Crisp green iceburg lettuce, vine ripened red tomatoes, crisp flavorful purple onions, melted cheese, dab of ketchup, dab of mustard, mayo, shot or two or three of tabasco.

The burger s/b so tall you can barely fit it into your mouth. And so runny with coagulated goo that it's a messy affair.

I don't like "rabbit food" on my burgers, especially the ff kind, tomatos, onions and various condiments depending on type and my current mood. Last night I took 1/3lb of fresh meat formed iinto a patty, coated bothsides with A-1 then panfried over high heat with a couple slices of red onion sharing the pan. 3 slices of american cheese melted over the top til it oozed off the sides and crisped up (reminding me of late nights on granpas porch and cheese toasted on the heater) No bun but a side of cold baked beans and a healthy helping of chips finished up the plate..other times I may use bleucheese and toast or swisscheese and a poppyseed bun or maybe a plain bun (toasted) tomato, onion and mayo on a chedder topped burger.... this forum is NO GOOD for a diet......

Bill~

I grew up in Kansas City too! I've noticed that wherever I go, I usually am able to get a burger exactly how I want it without any problems, whether it's mushroom swiss, cheddar bacon, or good 'old mayo, pickle, onion, lettuce, 'n' tomato with American. I recently moved to North Carolina, so I'll have to pay attention to the traditional buger toppings in this neck of the woods.

HERE'S THE QUESTION:
Having grown up in MO, have you ever had a "Goober Burger"? I have never had one, but apparently they're very popular in Missouri. I know you can get them around the Sedalia/Columbia area, and in the Ozarks. There are billboards for them everywhere across central Missouri. Just about every one of my friends has tried them, and they can't believe I've never had one. A Goober Burger (from what I understand) is a hamburger topped with peanut butter. Sounds pretty strange to me, but everyone I know says it was quite surprisingly delicious. Have you ever had one? Let me know what you think!!!

PS... I didn't read every single page of this thread, so please forgive my redundancy if someone has already posted regarding the Goober Burger.

hi ya Jewel, I don't think they made it west past Sedalia at the wheel Inn, thankfully. Welcome
to the forums. Lot of North Carolinians on here.

Thanks for the welcome and the info, Bill! The review was helpful-- don't know how I missed that one... lol. Seems like I've been through the Missouri reviews, but the BBQ places must have stuck with me the most. I'm with you on the Guber burger... they can stay east, and that would be just fine with me!

So I've heard, but I'd rather have a good, sharp Swiss, or feta, or bleu cheese. The bigger the burger's bite the better the burger's . Besides, rules are for McDonalds' and other chains.

When I cook them, I like to spread peanut butter on the top, then scrape the peanut butter off before consumption. I'd rather have several thin than one thick slice of onion, and raw over fried. I also like tomatoes, and hate catsup (which would shock anyone that knew me as a kid). Catsup is for dipping fries and onion rings in, but mixed with mustard or a little chili powder or steak sauce.

I also like steak, barbecue, or worcestershire sauce, and mustard. I'll take spread mustard if I must, but would rather have powder or seeds, and a VERY small bit of mustard or that's all I taste. None of that wimpy yellow French's either. Chinese mustard is a bit much for me, though.

The Peanut Barrel may rival Crunchies...great olive burger there (chopped green olives and "olive sauce"), and you can get it on a rye bun. I"m hungry now, I might have to go there for lunch....

If we're talking non-FF or made at home, I'm a purist - a bit of salt, a bit more pepper, cheese (cheddar or American are perfect, but I'll eat almost any of it) and bacon. The perfect burger needs nothing more.

I don't think toppings are a regional thing. I think it's personal and what you are in the mood for.

When I do it at home, the burger goes into a cast iron pan to be seared on the outside and medium rare on the inside with some grilled onions and salt only. Occasionally dipped in catsup, ketchup, whatever.

Out I like the classic of lettuce, tomato, 1000 island also medium rare and juicy.

Sometimes I like sharp cheddar and thick bacon. Sometimes ancho chili mayo. Sometimes pepper jack. Maybe some avocado (not mole). Rarely chili or pastrami. Rarely red onion or mushrooms or teriaki.

Mostly I hate them thin and dried out or with worchester sauce in the mix.

Almost a pound of freshly ground beef as a hand-formed paddy, cooked on the medium side of medium-rare, with a dressing made of mayo (or preferably, Miracle Whip), a touch of ketchup, a touch of mustard and green relish, sliced dill pickle, iceberg lettuce, and saute'd mushrooms, on a toasted sesame bun, served with either fries or BBQ potato chips.
