The Return of the Monster Burger, HaPpY BiRtHdAy Old Hippie!

We have a yearly tradition.  Each year on the Old Hippie's birthday, I make a gigantic burger, just for him.  The seasonings that I use are worchestershire, Cavender's Greek Seasoning, and McCormick Montreal Steak Seasoning.  I should have weighed the patty before cooking... maybe next year.  I'm guessing it is between 1.5 and 2 pounds.  We generally don't eat a lot of meat, so this is a very special occasion.

Here it is!  Complete with cheddar, provolone, mayo, onions, pickles, tomato, avacado and sprouts on a cheddar-jalapeno bun. 

This is the first year that he did not attempt to eat the entire burger.  I say "attempt" because he has never actually finished one!  This way he saves room for the Coca Cola Cake (also a tradition). 

HaPpY BiRtHdAy Old Hippie!

Peace, love and happiness,
Earth Mother

Now that's one big burger. You should enter that into Man Vs. Food. I wonder if he could eat it all. Thanks for sharing and Many Blessings~
