Create your U2 burger!
« on: October 25, 2014, 05:18:11 PM »
So this week I discovered the "Elevation" burger joint. They had the "Elevation" burger and the "Vertigo" burger. When I asked one of the staff about a possible U2 connection, she predictably said "Huh?"
I'm guessing the founder is a U2 fan and it made me wonder what others U2-related burgers we can come up with.

There's the "Unforgettable Fire" burger, with chipotle sauce (you'll now why the next day).
The "Edge" burger, served on a plate that is literally on fire...

what other U2 burgers can you create? Maybe we can send the recipes to Norman Hewson (B.'s brother) for a partnership.  ::)

Best thread idea in ages!

the "Is That All" burger: slider with onions and pickle chip.

the "Indian Summer Sky" burger: patty made from mix of 80/20 chuck and smoked brisket, on sourdough with tomato, smoked Gouda and a butternut squash "mayo."

the "Babyface" burger: ground lamb burger, seared on a grill and then braised with onions in a Beaujolais reduction. Served on a pretzel bun with au jus, and sweet potato fries on the side.

The "White As Snow" burger: 1/2 pound patty of well-seasoned (secret blend!) ostrich meat, covered in Provolone and Mozzarella, served on Texas Toast-cut bread with horseradish.

"Volcano" burger: double patty, double cheese, bacon, onion rings, bbq sauce. If you can eat the whole thing "something in you wants to explode".

gotta go now, as am now drooling with hunger!! :P

really great ideas that actually sound yummy and do-able in real life.

are you cooks/chefs?

I'm not really, although I have had "cook" as a job title once or twice. I do like cooking at home, though.

The Magnificent burger. It has spicy cheese instead of American. It has two patties.

Miracle Drug burger: Don't know what's in it, don't want to know. It seems to be quite popular among MLB players.  ::)

The "Oh Berlin" burger:
Ground pork, caraway seeds, black pepper, sour cream, chopped parsley and sauerkraut

I wish I could say it's my recipe but alas, I looked for German burgers.  :P
