    Hamburgers are the favorite fast food for families to eat. but adding the following like

    lettuce
    pickles
    mayo
    yellow American cheese
    catsup
    onions,
    tomatos
    mustard

    just ruins the image of the hamburger. why do we need them as add ons? why not stick with only these

    Tabasco sauce
    bacon
    mozzarella cheese
    a ting dash of Dijon mustard

    those are much better toppings

    For me, pickles and onions are staples of a good burger. When I make them at home, my burger consists of:

    Mustard
    Beef
    Cheese
    Pickles
    Onions

    Done.

    You guys should try 50/50 burgers. Go to your butcher and get ground sirloin and ground bacon. Make your burger patties with equal parts ground beef and ground bacon. Throw on some cheese and what ever else you like for the best bacon cheese burger ever.

    Why do we need cups for water. Can't we just go outside and drink it as it falls from the sky? Can I start that thread? Ya!

    Mustard. Not okay.

    Dijon Mustard? Now I'm listening.

    I'm good with people putting whatever they want on a burger. Seems to have kept me out of trouble thus far.

    That's the beauty of cheeseburgers, .. everybody can put whatever they want on theirs.

    I would actually like one with everything you mention above except for the tabasco sauce.

    Add some iced tea, .. and baked beans mixed/stirred together with cottage cheese, and that's a great summertime lunch! (and maybe a pickle and chips)

    I like mine simple and made at home. 80/20 mixed with salt, pepper, and fresh garlic only. 1 slice of provolone or muenster, grilled onions & fresh jalapeno slices and a squirt of mustard. I feel the same way about pizza, people put too much crap on them. Give me sausage and onion and leave the rest in the kitchen.

    As much as .. 'Beans: why do we eat them'

    LOL

    Oh, and can I get some opinions on mixing baked beans with cottage cheese.

    Anyone else like this? It is a delicacy and one of my all time favorites. Great with Pizza!

    I like to mix mine with about a 70/30 mix of Hamburger and Spicy Italian Sausage. Then, you sprinkle with a decent steak seasoning, baste with Teriyaki or Worcesteshire sauce, whichever you prefer, and grill em up. It's nice to take good cuts of bacon and add those but it's not necessary if you don't want to. I also like to brush my hamburger buns with a little butter and just throw them on the grill to brown just a bit. Of course, no burger is complete, in New Mexico, without some decent green chile on it.

    Add just a bit of mustard and that's a perfect burger to me.
