Caramelized Onion Burger

August 28, 2009

I made this dinner at 10pm last night after a late night gym session. Actually, I just made this for B and he loved it. He couldn’t decide which burger was better-his Birthday Burger or this one, although they both have pretty much the same ingredients. Like I said before, anything with prosciutto is good to him. This kind of meal is perfect after a long night out, the saltiness from the prosciutto combined with the spiciness from the pepperjack cheese, all on top of a nice beef patty, you can’t get late night food better than this. Makes me want to open a burger joint, kind of. I have been obsessing over everything Bobby Flay lately. I guess that’s what his food does to you after you’ve had it. Every time I see him on TV, I feel like I can “connect” with his food, does that sound lame? Anyways, I saw an advertisement for his burger joint when we were at Mesa Grill a couple weeks ago, but all his locations are on the east coast 😦 I twittered him to open one in L.A. B was almost going to get a burger at Mesa Grill, but I pushed him to get something else. I said you can get burgers anywhere and you want to get one here?! His response: …but it’s a Bobby Flay burger! Case closed.
