Clicking in to the AHT inbox today, we've got a message asking one of the most frequent, hard-to-answer, mission-defining questions that we grapple with with every blog entry we post here.
Subject line: "Is this even a burger?"
Message body: "I can't decide: http://blogs.phoenixnewtimes.com/bella/2009/04/a_burger_fit_for_a_sasquatch_a.php
This, ladies and gents, is the Sasquatch Burger from The Lodge in Scottsdale, Arizona. What's it consist of?
" ... a half-pound of Angus chuck, cheese, bacon, and fried onion sticks between two whole grilled cheese sandwiches."
Um, considering that A Hamburger Today helped popularize the concept of the grilled-cheese-as-buns burger with our Hamburger Fatty Melt and Bacon Hamburger Fatty Melt, I'm going to have to say that, Yes, the Sasquatch Burger is a hamburger.
