It was my birthday yesterday but I was on a driving training course so we are celebrating today. We get the meal of our choice on birthdays so I’ve requested we all have our ‘ultimate burger’ tonight. So we are having:
Me - burger with chilli beef, bacon and jalapeños
Wife - 2 x large grilled mushrooms instead of a bun, burger with blue cheese, garlic butter and diced chillis
Son -two burgers, cheese and chorizo
Daughter - burger with chilli beef and cheese

All with fries, slaw, onion rings and corn.

What would your ultimate burger be?

Happy belated birthday! My ultimate includes blue cheese & hot peppers on a real bun.

We had therm yesterday too for my wife's and daughter's birthdays (although my daughter's was in August, but she just got home from Germany so we celebrated her's with my wife's).   Ours were pretty bland compared to yours .... mostly cheese, mayo, lettuce and tomato .... one with grilled onions and chili, one with cheese, mayo, lettuce, tomato, and bacon.  My grandsons like them plain with ketchup.  Kind of hard to mess up a good burger!

My ultimate is pretty simple ....... cheese , mayo, lettuce & tomato ......crispy bacon would work ......... or a chili cheeseburger with mustard and onions!

Bucking the trend of thick burgers piled high with a list of ingredients, always including cheese; I like a very thin patty quickly cooked on a hot griddle until the edges are crisp, then dropped onto a bun with mustard and onion and a single slice of pickle. No cheese.

I'm with banjo Bill-e, give me a simple burger, one with a bun, mustard, a couple of slices of tomato and maybe a leaf of lettuce (optional). I don't care for burgers that are too thick to be able to bite. I also don't care for cheese, pickles or onions on my burger.

Dave used to love big, juicy, messy burgers piled high with cheese, onions, jalapenos and/or green chilies. His mouth was big enough to bite through all that. Mine isn't.

Oh, and sides? Definitely onion rings and French fries.

Now you've made me hungry for a hamburger. Better go get the hamburger meat out of the freezer.

Burger: 1/3 lb fine lean ground beef. Egg, breadcrumb, fine dice onion, Cajun Seasoning.
Mix to fibrous and shape very thin. Fry in a touch of EVO.
Bun with mustard, cheese, onion slice and tomato slice.
Both dill and S&S cuke pickles on the side.
Yam/sweet potato fries with chipotle mayo.

I have my burger put up in 1.5 lb packages for the convenience of left overs. So above, I will see 4, maybe 5 nice big burgers.

Birthday Dinner? Six dozen candles will set off the smoke alarm and I need more than that.

Salmon candy. That's alder-smoked sockeye in a maple syrup marinade.

More garlic & butter fried scallops than you imagine any human could eat.
I'll cook my own, thanks, if it's all the same to you. Save one for Heidi-cat.
I want good seaweed slaw and herb bread.
BIG glass of good white wine. Leave the bottle, please.

Dessert is a lemon/poppy seed bundt cake with really sour lemon icing.

They're all good. I like the small ones on the slider buns. Eat two instead of one.

If everything is perfect, the ultimate burger has a slice of tomato, a slick of mayo, and a slice of aged cheddar (or Stilton if I’m feeling frisky). I usually have the pickle on the side, as I find they fall off the bun before they get to my mouth.

Monty, unfortunately, by the time I finished reading your post, I was in need of a large Tums. Too much stomach abuse back in the day.
My ultimate burger night is:
Thick med rare to med patty, between old fashion bun, with slice of mild cheddar, hamburger pickles, grilled onions, ketchup, and mayo, tomato slice. Sides of: potato chips, potato salad, crunchy cheetos, dill pickle spear. Beer! If I am feeling real bold, and my bottle of Tums is handy, a slice of raw white onion on burger.

My birthday was on the 8th...I’m 38!!! Getting on up there. :)

I fixed fried chicken, mashed taters, and chicken gravy from the grease. Mmmmmmm...mmmm!

My ultimate burger, I mix salt, garlic, some cayenne, chili powder, onion powder, and some crushed ritz crackers into the patty while I’m forming it. Then I add some cheese inside the patty so when I grill it, the cheese melts inside. Plenty of bacon, onion rings, and some tangy Texas bbq sause like “Rudy’s” on top....and its go time!

Two all beef patties
special sauce, lettuce, cheese
onions, pickles on a sesame seed bun!

Okay, actually... I just had the greatest burger of my life down at "The Dog." I think it was called the "Foxy" burger, with their special secret foxy sauce on it. I don't know if I was just hungry or what, but I haven't been able to stop talking about it since.

38? 38? I thought this was for mature audiences only! I thought you had to be at least fifty to be here? Who let you? :-)

Carry on, all you young punks.
Six dozen candles isn't enough for me any more.
Plus, they set off the smoke alarm.

All things considered, I might just start over. Next August 21, I will be 2 years old.

Ha! Don't let my screen name fool you...the 65 in my name was my high school football number. Yep...I was borned in '82! Shoot...you wanna feel old...try working along side other people at work who were born in the 2000's. A young man like me has very little in common with them.

I like 'em medium, with lettuce, good tomato, and onion, no cheese, no ketchup, mayo or mustard, A little Worcestershire source or spicy barbeque sauce can be good, maybe a touch of hot sauce depending on my mood, and occasionally fresh grilled mushrooms.

There's a barbeque joint down the street that smokes their burgers, and uses really good lettuce and tomato. They're really good. Unfortunately, the budget doesn't allow for that right now. And I wanted one today.

Soooo . . . for my birthday last week I made a pot of gumbo. I didn't learn to make it until this spring. The virus changed everything, and I've cooked more in the last 7 months than in the previous 25 years. So, chicken and sausage gumbo and a Marie Callender chocolate satin pie. The pie was over the budget, but you've got to be a little bad on your birthday, and I have no other alternatives to misbehave right now. I hope that business will improve to the point that I can make a gumbo with shrimp soon.

Signing off. That gumbo will keep me busy for another couple of days, and it's calling me now.

Maybe I'l be bad and go for the smoked burger on Sunday.  I can do butterbean stew after the gumbo is gone, and it's easy on the budget.

Hey Bob, covid been tough on me, for sure. But I am still good for a bag of shrimp. Besides , I hear Tennessee and the South calling me back. Get that next pot of gumbo started, and give me a shout. I figure you know where to find a good whisky somewheres around there. ;-) brad

I'm with you on the no cheese Bob. I've also never had Gumbo, I think I need to fix that.  I also love the sound of the smoked burger ......what's the name of the bbq joint - I'd love to look them up and drool over the menu.... bbq isn't great in the U.K. unless you do it yourself, or live in London .

Is that brown gravy Bob?  I'm not a massive fish fan but I do like cod or haddock and chips from the chippy.  Never had gravy with f&c but I do have a guilty secret of sausage, chips and gravy - over here, the chip shop sausages are definitely 100% lips and axxxholes and the gravy is powdered msg but every once in a while, it's manna from heaven.

It's something I discovered at a Newfie Fish & chip shop in Calgary. I wobbled in there after the bars & asked the Gal to recommend something. She said Fish & chips with "The Works" . It's Cod & chips with dressing or stuffing With brown gravy all over it.

I've never seen it again but it is a thing in Newfoundland. I always get gravy for my fries no matter what they come with. I get it on the side to dunk my fries & the odd chunk of battered fish in the few times I have it per year.

Before I had to take classes with a Dietitian I thought gravy was health food!

I have seen the cardboard boxes that 25 lb sacks of gravy powder come in.
No thank you. Not. Maybe in another life. Not this year. Not ever.

Under this desk, right now, is a cardboard box labelled:

WATKINS
Deep Dish Pizza Crust Mix
#O5333A INTERNATIONAL.

I take 3-4 of my salt collection and a mortal & pestle when I go for fish and chips.
Do some little taste tests to entertain myself.
Extra plate and I put some of each out for the serving staff to try.
Adds a little novelty to their evening.

The place with the smoked burger is the "Purple Daisy Picnic Cafe" in Chattanooga. The menu is very simple-- BBQ pork or chicken, a half dozen kinds of sandwiches, loaded potatoes, and the smoked burger. They do have a hot cole slaw that will knock the top of your head off.

I gave up whisky over 30 years ago, but unless something has changed, most of the home brew around here is made in a dry county in northern Alabama, is brewed for profit only, and don't burn with a clear blue flame. Don't drink it before you test it, otherwise you risk grave harm. There was a fellow in north Georgia who made a fine, aged home brew from his own corn crop, but if he's still alive he's close to a hundred years old and I doubt he's still hoeing corn. And he only made enough for friends and family. You couldn't buy it.

Anyone interested in gumbo needs to realize that there's a learning curve to making the roux. If it burns, you have to throw it out and start over. I suggest some careful study before your first try. My current recipe is as follows-- butter, flour, onion, celery, red and or green bell pepper, garlic, water, tomatoes, chicken, andouille sausage, thyme, oregano, and okra, in that order.  I add file and sometimes a little hot sauce just before serving.

Oh, I’m getting hungry! I love a little hamburger mixed with crushed saltine crackers and a bit of Worcestershire sauce, pressed really flat, and cooked to well done—on a bun with onion, pepper jack cheese, tomato slices, mayonnaise and ketchup!
