We take eighteen ounces of sizzling ground beef, and soak it in rich, creamery butter, then we top it off with bacon, ham, and a fried egg. We call it the Good Morning Burger.

So the Good Morning Burger is secretly also the Doughnut Burger, also known as the Lady's Brunch Burger?

I am confused. Also, strangely, craving a piece of raw broccoli.

I think you should have also included the 'bacon' tag. There can never be enough posts somehow involving bacon.

Make the beef some kind of breakfast sausage and you'll have my heart.

But it might not work for long.

My roommate and I love Paula Deen. Why? She just doesn't give a damn. I'm waiting for the day that she brings out her ultimate recipe and introduces it just by saying, "I'm Paula Deen, and I don't give a damn."

My guess is that it will be come kind of deep-fried, bacon encrusted bacon desert. With a mayo-based icing.

Can I use jelly donuts instead? How about hash browns? Can I put hash browns in there? I think I'm going to put some in there. Please? And maybe a half dozen Kraft singles?

Mister Cheese: Just what I was thinking. Instead of ground beef, make it a nice large patty of Bob Evans spicy sausage.

(I so miss Bob Evans since moving to Seattle...)

I meant to write "bacon encrusted chocolate dessert" but "bacon encrusted bacon desert" sounds both terrifying and delicious, so maybe it is more Deen-like in spirit.

Her cooking's like the food version of the American economy.

(Exactly how is left as an exercise for the reader).

There's a brilliant comment somewhere suggesting that she co-host a show with Anthony Bourdain. I'd watch that. Meat cleavers would play an important part in the last 10 minutes I think.

I like dill pickles and I like Frosted Flakes. But I've never felt the urge to combine the two. This burger is an abomination and Paula Deen should be flogged in public for suggesting such a thing.

"Ouch, y'all!"

Mix ingredients together and store in an airtight container for up to 6 months.

6 months?

I've had versions of this around the country (including the Emmy-Bull burger at Dan's Place II in albany, ny) but never with a donut.

From Brouwers.

I'm one for the Alton Brown theory of the hamburger. 10 oz patty, grilled medium rare w/ a little bit of crispy. Fresh lettuce, fresh tomato (Both in season), a medium-thin smear of mayo and a grind of pepper on a toasted bun.

I think this Paula Deen is doing some very bad things to food.

Hey, congrats to all of you on being so healthy and skinny and whatever, but come on, eating one of these things (or even eating one every couple months) is not going to magically turn you into a blimp. I don't think that even butter-obsessed Paula is advocating that you eat one of these things every day. Relax.

Dear AskMe,

I have a very bad case of Irritable Bowel Syndrome. But I really think them donut bacon cheeseburgers dunked in whale blubber batter and deep fried to a crisp in pork fat look really, really yummy. Should I throw caution to the wind and eat them anyway?

Dear rest of the world:

Hello, we're America, we submit to you this donut burger. Yes, this is meant for one person. For one meal. Yes, all at once.

We find this delicious, and as you may have noticed, many of us are already figuring out ways to make it less healthy. These are the things we craft for our own bodies, this is what we do to ourselves, and we enjoy it. If our loved ones made this for us, we would see it as a grand gesture of affection. On holidays we shower each other with foods and candies that your culture would find horrifying. We set up franchises within walking distance of one another to dispense this sort of product to ourselves, products some of you would consider weapons, products if fed to your children you would consider human rights violations. We pay for the privilige. These things are our reward, our measure of enjoyment.

We're sorry about all the bombs and guns and stuff. This is the only way we know how to show love.

Love,
America.

Surely you don't mean Elvis Presley. Whose favorite sandwich was the equally unholy Fool's Gold Loaf?

Not only would Elvis have eaten the Donut Burger, he's probably in the midst of zombie reanimation right now in order to come out of the cold Graceland ground, steal a car, and drive the ~110 miles to Savannah to show up on Paula Deen's door and demand a hunka-hunka Donut Burger.

Reference for the title of the post. Scroll down to the recipes or search for "creamy".
posted by assoctw at 2:20 PM on March 5, 2008


arguments about health values aside. the reason I mention AB's burger is that with all that fat (and sugar) piled on that poor excuse for a sandwich you're violating one of the basic tenants of burger consumption... namely:

You should be eating a burger for the enjoyment of the taste of beef, and the condiments you choose should reflect that fact AND enhance the flavor of the beef patty.

What most americans call a burger, nowadays, does not fall under this measure (and neither does the fpp monstrosity) because the taste buds are overwhelmed by the presence of fats in the sandwich.

Remember folks, corn fed beef has more fat in it. And while fats aren't completely bad for you when taken in reasonable portions (and not every meal). What fats do is take all the enjoyment out of mildly flavored foods and the experience of nuanced flavors.

So, put down that glazed doughnut. Don't braise your burger in cream. Leave off all but a slight hint of bacon and save the eggs for breakfast. Enjoy your burger as the cow intended. Clean, lightly peppered and on a toasted bun. AND preferably cooked over a charcoal fire.
