There's nothing better than hot dogs, corn on the cob, and watermelon for the Fourth. But if you're in search of an adventure and a more creative way to celebrate, might I suggest scoping out the country's regional food scene? Whether you're in Cincinnati or Central Texas, the United States of America is a veritable chest of gastronomic treasures just waiting to be discovered. A few of my favorite local specialties are right this way.
What with my new found love for burgers and recent acquisition of a meat grinder, last Sunday, I decided it was time to tackle beef burgers. After spending far too much time reading burger recipes on the Internet, I settled on this amazing-sounding burger from Food & Wine.
It's a glamorous burger that's stuffed with brie cheese and a spicy scallion paste. It's hearty, gourmet, and absolutely delicious! If you love burgers, you must give this Jucy Lucy-style burger a chance.
The brie cheese permeates through the beef and the scallion paste adds just the perfect amount of heat. It's sure to impress guests, so add the recipe to your Summer roster when you read more
Recently our very own Nancita made a culinary pilgrimage to Minneapolis. She went on a quest for one of the nation's most infamous hamburgers, the Jucy Lucy. Created at a small, no-nonsense eatery, Matt's Bar, the Jucy Lucy is a hamburger with a molten cheese core. From the outside the burger looks like any old burger, but following the first bite, a stream of gushing, melted American cheese makes this burger far from ordinary. After seeing her pictures, I'm eager to make my own Jucy Lucy journey. How about you?
