Burgers, Fries & Shakes Giveaway

Hamburgers are fabulous all year round, but they are especially great in the summer when you can get the barbecue out and grill them easily. I am always looking for different toppings to create different burger combinations.

I was at a burger place called the South St. Burger Co. last week and decided to try a burger with wasabi mayonnaise, gourmet relish, and the typical lettuce, onion, tomatoes, and banana peppers. The wasabi mayonnaise gave it a great kick and a different flavor. The bonus was that they serve New York Fries there too!

Speaking of delicous hamburgers and fabulous french fries, Bobby Flay has a new book out called, Bobby Flay's Burgers, Fries, and Shakes. It is full of pictures and offers 33 hamburger recipes as well as french fry, onion ring and shake recipes! There are great tips in the book to make your homemade hamburger adventure even better.

I like the book so much that I got an extra copy to give away! To enter the draw, all you have to do is:

I love contests and this one is very timely with BBQ season upon us.

My favourite burger topping is havarti, bacon and avocado (coincidently also my favourite club sandwich topping so it's very versatile).

Fingers crossed for the win! :)

Chris said...

I'm so boring - we do the same toppings every time we grill. Smoked gouda, bbq sauce and bacon.

Marlene said...

Crumbled goat cheese. Yum!

JenniferC said...

I love cheeseburgers with a variety of cheese all mixed together, blue cheese, parmesan, mozzarella, cheddar and havarti. Whichever I have in the fridge.

Jean said...

I think you listed all of the things I like! I really enjoy a sesame toasted bun. Diana's bbq sauce on the burger, a Kraft single for the cheese, slivers of onion, sliced tomato, and mustard. And of course I can't forget a spear of pickle on the side! I think that's a pretty simple burger. Mmm!!!

I'm glad you featured burgers; they're one of my favorite comfort foods! And that burger you described - does it ever sound good!

My burger has to have ketchup and cheese, but close behind come pickles, good mustard, mayo and onions.

Thanks for this great draw!

Laura said...

Gourmet relish and pickles!

Amy said...

Bacon is my favorite hamburger topping. Sometimes I make a double hamburger with one layer of bacon instead of a beef patty. :0)

Brenda said...

Great draw! Right on time for summer. On my burger, I like it plain and simple, ketchup, mayonnaise, mustard and some relish.

John said...

I love horseradish mayo on my burger. It's definitely not satisfying without it.

I'm pretty simple - cheese, tomato, ketchup, mayo, dill pickle. I had a great burger tonight though that had BBQ sauce, cheese and mango salsa on it.
