[FTC Standard Disclosure] I received no compensation for this post from anyone, including, but not limited to: Sargento, Food City, Kingsford, PK Grill, or JJ George. I'm just linking the stuff I paid for and used.
If you follow any burger threads on social media, you know that the trendy thing is towering stacks of half a dozen smash burgers, dripping with cheese. They look amazing, but for me, they are over-the-top. I'm not a snake with a jaw that I can un-hinge at will.
This burger is simple and doesn't look like much. It doesn't even have a shred of lettuce. But this was the best burger that I have had in the past couple of years. It's a straightforward ground chuck patty, a seasoned slice of tomato, grilled onions, aged Gouda, mayo, toasted bun, and sorghum-bourbon bacon.
