Most Heavenly Burger EVER
Delicatessen (NYC) hidden in plain sight right in the middle of Soho and Nolita on the corner of Prince Street and Lafayette. The drinks are never weak and everything on the menu is pretty damn exquisite. Don’t Count your calories when you go there; its decadent comfort food on steroids- event the healthier items on the menu. My absolute favorite side items there are their 4 Cheese Mac N Cheese, Lobster Mac N Cheese from MacBar and their Signature Burger. I loved that burger so much; I tried my hand at making myself one day…and CRUSHED IT!
Here is Delicatessen’s Burger: with Ground Beef, Crispy Pork Belly, Charred Tomato, Fried Egg with Cheese Sauce on a Brioche Bun…it’s messy and gooey and decadent! It comes with all the toppings you could want and to top it off… truffle parmesan fries. I always get a side of their mac n’ cheese. It’s overload I know but its too hard to walk out of there without having some…the takeout is just as good so do that if my way is too much….don’t judge me though! The takeout packaging comes in a plastic elbow shaped container…too cute.
Here is My Burger: Ground Turkey, Crispy Applewood Smoked Bacon, Shredded Swiss & White Cheddar Cheese, Beef Tomato and Spinach on a Sesame Seed Bun. Hand-cut Potatoes (Fries) with Balsamic Ketchup
Here is how I season my burgers:
Ground Turkey, few splashes of Lea & Perrins Worshdishire Sauce, Lawry’s Seasoning Salt, Fresh Ground Pepper, Garlic, Red Robin Burger Seasoning. Mix and let sit for 20 minutes to let the seasoning marinate.
In a non-stick pan cook your bacon. Then use that same pan with that great bacon rendering to cook your burgers…….CAN I SAY FLAVOR!
Pat the burger patties thinner in the center to prevent dryness and cook them to a juicy medium.
After burger is done and just cover over the pan with foil or the pan lid to steam melt the cheese. Fry up an egg over easy. Lightly toast your bun of choice and lightly spray with butter
Layer it all up and ENJOY! Maybe one day I will reinvent my own 4 cheese Mac as good as MacBar does. Right now, I will just make the trip and order it to go at its kiosk store directly behind the restaurant on Prince.
