Info
This burger from Fred Thompson’s Barbecue Nation definitely felt like a guilty pleasure. I’ve gotten to know some of the people who work at my supermarket and they have often shown me how to find the best meat or produce. I was afraid I’d lose credibility points if I had to ask them where the Cheese Whiz was. Besides Cheese Whiz, this burger also used diced onion and refried beans to give it flavor. The end result was a bit surprising to me as there was an interesting and very good balance of flavor. No one item was dominant, you could taste every ingredient in equal measure. The recipe made for a good change of pace.
