I’m really not a huge burger fan. Actually, my favorite burgers are veggie burgers. But then last spring I read and article on the 5 Best Burgers in OK. I started mapping the sites out and started thinking, “2 hours isnt that far for a burger excursion”. So last summer I put on my list (remember I really like lists) places to go check out for burgers. In no particular order, here are some of our favorites.
- Folgers in Ada, OK A 12 seat diner experience
2. Spork, Dallas A funky family friendly joint with the best Bulgogi kimchi fries
3. Off Site Kitchen, Dallas Green chili burger, Yum.
Every once in a while I try my hand at burgers at home. I must be turning into a southerner. After 10+ years in Texas I now love pimento cheese. This is a simple burger topped with a fried egg and an aged cheddar pimento cheese spread.
For this burger, I had my ground beef in a vacuum sealed bag, so it was already flat and thin. I cut the beef into 6 rectangles and seasoned with salt, pepper and granulated garlic. I cooked them in a cast iron skillet and then finished them in the oven. I fried 6 eggs over easy/medium. In a food processor I made the pimento cheese spread with pimentos, green onions, mayo, cream cheese, and a really good aged cheddar. Lastly, I buttered and toasted the challah rolls.
