The Lumberjack Burger


This post is a quick shout out to my brother, who amongst the mashed cauliflower and quinoa salad recipes, begs that I include some good old fashion American fare. ...But of Course!

Here's a burger he and his friends call, "The Lumberjack." He's unsure if they coined the name or if it derives from someone else - but it just may be a burger impossible for you to easily replicate. (I know...try to compose yourself.)

You see the 80/20 all beef burger is topped with two slices American cheese, onion rings and a slice of Taylor Pork Roll - that last ingredient as far as I know only available in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and some places in New York. A sausage like, ham product, Taylor Pork Roll is generally pan fried or grilled and is classically found in breakfast sandwiches with ketchup, eggs and cheese.

Here (as is the case with most pork products) the Taylor Pork Roll has found its way sitting pretty atop a burger! ...It was only a matter of time!

Do you have Taylor Pork Roll where you live?

Yep, that's it! If you want to overnight mail me the burger in that picture, I'll still eat it. Yum

Now, that is a man's burger. My husband would be drooling everywhere. Love it.

Stop it just stop it right now. How am I going to order a salad for lunch after seeing this photo? If loving this is wrong I don't want to be right.

If this were a REAL Lumberjack Burger, you would have breaded and deep fried the whole thing. Whimp.

Aren't brothers so funny? My brother requests MAN FOOD all the time. I've actually never seen or heard of these sausages! But I need to find some. For the next time I crave MEAT.

The burger looks wonderful, but there is no better food anywhere in the world than Taylor ham and an egg over easy served with melted cheese on a hardroll. I hope you are having a great day. Blessings...Mary

This looks amazing! I only wish someone would have figured out how to deliver the food through the computer already!

Karen said...

I did a huge burger this week also. Sometimes we just need a great big juicy hamburger. Great idea with the onion ring.
