OT - Wendy's Burgers

Ok, not sure if they are doing this nationwide, but at least here in Central Ohio Wendy's has changed their burgers, and man are they GREAT!

 

More horrible for you than before even as the patty is thicker and juicier, and they now butter the bun. I don't eat fast food much (maybe 2 times a month), but man do they have a winner there...I like the ratio of meat to everything else just with a single cheese, so no double or triple patties for me.

 

Do yourself a favor and go get one if you like a good burger.

I ain't ever eaten a burger on a buttered bun. Not sure about that at all.

Gross. Fast food is my bane. Especially since I discovered my food allergies and I'm now on the road a lot. If I never eat another McDonald's chicken sammich that would be fine by me.

 

I've been buying ground buffalo for burgers lately. If you over cook it, it am be quite dry but it's very tasty and lean. For everything else (burritos, lasagna, anything that calls for ground beef) I use ground turkey. It's much better tasting, IMO and no nasty grease.

Did I ever tell you people I was a good cook? I am, I am.

 

On the less elegant end in my repertoire of cuisine is the burger. When my son was little, he used to watch SpongeBob, and said sponge worked at a burger place called the "Crusty Crab", where the main delicacy was called the "Crabby Patty". One day, the boy asked if I could make him one.

 

"I can do better than that," I claimed, and invented the Daddy Patty. Basically, it starts with good meat (90/10 ground beef), and then I add some pepper and garlic powder, and a dash of worcester sauce. It can go any direction from there; I enjoy swiss and mushroom, though grilled onion is always nice. Pop it on a bun with lettuce and tomato, and it's a delightful lunch.

 

In more impressive cooking news, I made an unbelievably good vichyssoise on Sunday. Potato and leek soup. Mmmmm.

Anytime a bun is 'grilled' it's usually buttered beforehand. So I'm sure you probably have my friend. It's not like they have just butter on a roll sitting there. It's probably buttered and grilled. Maybe not, I don't work there and haven't tried their latest formulation. But you've probably had a buttered grilled hamburger bun, that's all I'm saying.

 

Wendy's has a $0.99 junior bacon cheeseburger. A serious temptation driving home from a gig or on the long road from SD to LA is to drive through and drop 2 bucks on a pair. Throw in a jr frosty for a buck more and make a cheap tasty indulgence out of it.

Yeah now that you mention it, I'm sure I have, but not from a fast food joint. I've often looked inside the burger bun at BK or McD's (don't visit Wendy's often) and it's always soft inside... no grilling was involved.

 

But the thought of just slapping cold butter on a burger doesn't appeal. :cool:

My dilemma (always) is what's a good burger at 3am, and although they stay open past midnight unfortunately Wendy's closes before that around here.

 

I usually settle for a Jumbo Jack, which actually isn't a bad burger. It's not "Jumbo" in the least anymore, which is fine by me at 3am - and under $2.

 

I do this maybe once a week or so out of the 4-5 nights I'm gigging these days.
