Patch Picks: Cheeseburgers As Paradise
National Cheeseburger Day is Sunday, so get your menu ready!
Earlier in the year, we talked about the best Burgers in Brookline, unaware that this Sunday, Sept 18 is actually National Cheeseburger Day. In honor of that, we're shaking up Patch Picks this week to bring you a mouth-watering selection that can make your sunday burger plate perfect.
Why? One of the titular ingredients in a cheeseburger is the burger. Whether it's made with a hamburger from a local butcher's shop, or a homemade turkey burger, or even a great veggie burger, you can't have a cheeseburger without it.
Why? The other half of the name: Stop and Shop, or Brookline Fine Wine & Gourmet can connect you with a number of cheesy options. American, swiss, cheddar, and monterey jack are often found topping burgers, but you could also try gouda or feta for a new twist on the flavor.
Why? Lettuce and tomatoes from Allandale Farm or the Farmer's Market, or bacon bought when you're already at the Meat House or Butcherie can give your burger a new dimension of flavor. Alternately, try the bacon and egg cheeseburger, or peanut butter on it, said to be a favorite of Elvis.
Why? A burger without fries sounds almost unnatural. Buy or make some oven fries, if you want to stay a little healthier. Pull out a sweet potato and make fries from that, or even serve with a really tasty salad. The options are yours.
