    Mother Of All Burgers. Making Of A Burger. What started as a 2.2 lb package of 7% lean ground beef got formed in to a burger patty. I had actually intended on getting 1.2 lbs, which would have been appropriate for dinner. It changed form very little from package to burger patty. Maybe it was 1.2. I thought it was 1.2 but in retrospect I think it was actually 2.2. Nah, let's go with 1.2. I don't feel like digging the label out of the trash.

    Okay you don't see the A1 sauce in this photo. That is because I elected to endousiate the A1 sauce in to the burger patty. And there is some onions for good measure.

    Throw in a little Italian seasoning in to the onions for good measure:

    Here is the finished product, along with Ceasar salad. Note that I did not either cheese it up, or wrap it in lettuce. I didn't have suitable iceberg lettuce for wrapping, and I'm already using the romaine in the Ceasar salad.

    I was going to actually go to Carl's Jr. to pick up a couple Double Western Bacon Cheeseburgers for dinner on the way back from the pub, but @Ryanb shamed me in to switching to Inn n Out instead. I decided to up the ante and roll my own, since I had like half a field of romaine lettuce sitting in the fridge.

    That didn't go as I suspected. I thought it was going to be the Mother Of All Bombs -- which is working it's way to your bomb bay right now. (ewwww)

    A1 sauce in a burger? Is there something wrong with the meat?

    Salt, pepper and heat is all I use.

    OP should try a 50/50 mix of 80/20 ground beef and ground bison with some Montreal Steal seasoning mixed in.

    Speaking of burgers, I had a pretty good one last night for dinner, along with some killer squash casserole.

    It’s really unfortunate we live on opposite sites of the country, because that behemoth looks tasty!

    9/10. Add an egg on top and A1 on the egg and it’s “gourmet”. LOL!

    For that size of burger I don't think a chicken egg would be large enough. You'd probably have to go with goose or ostrich egg.

    Breakfast burger: 1/2 pound burger, fried egg, cheese, bacon, and o-rings. I took the o-rings off and added them to the ones on the side. Pretty darned good!

    I get what you're saying, it was probably 93% lean, which I find to be way too dry and tasteless for a good burger. I prefer 85% lean.

    Do you see those dimples in the second photo of the raw burger? That's where all of the Lipitor tables were inserted...
    It does sound like a pretty good breakfast burger, if on a day when I could immediately take a post-breakfast nap.

    I love A-1 steak sauce but I'll never have it on a steak or on a burger!

    Aww man. Leaving us hanging. What do you put it on??! LOL.

    I already mentioned eggs. But eggs love anything — they’re just vessels for any sort of flavor really.

    Lately I’ve been putting chipotle mixed with traditional red chili seasoning on eggs when I have them. Leaving out the salt. Pretty tasty.

    Of course around here if there’s any green Chile in the fridge that’s going on everything until it’s gone. :)

    A1 is like third in line. Maybe. Ha.

    Nah, this is a meatloaf! Three pounds of my wife's family meatloaf recipe; my contribution is the full bacon weave and smoking it for about 3.5 hours over apple and pecan wood. The baked potatoes, rubbed lightly with olive oil before going in the smoker, pick up just a tantalizing hint of the smoke as well, so they pair very well with the meatloaf.

    That is some serious saturated fats right there, keeping all that from sliding off the table.

    There's a comic clipping in my files somewhere of two dogs talking over a bowl of dog food. One is holding a bottle. The caption reads, "Of course I put horseradish on dog food! You put steak sauce on steak, don't you?"

    Nauga,
