Hello, lover. Where have you been all my life?! That’s what I think every time I have a tavern, pub or bar burger. These kinds of burgers are typically huge, greasy, covered with cheese and delicious. This is what I’m looking for when I want a big, fat, juicy cheeseburger. Which happens to be pretty much all of the time.
I used to hate making burgers at home. It was something about the smell and how greasy my kitchen felt afterwards. Luckily, those days are long gone and were far more exaggerated in my mind than in reality and now I’m a burger-making queen! I have a few varieties of burger-styles that I make… These tavern burgers happen to be one of the best.
I like getting the meat for this burger from my local butcher because this burger is all about the beef. When I’m making a big burger with 2 patties, the fresher the meat, the better the burger. This is a classic-style pub burger but the high-quality ingredients really make it shine… Flattening the burgers with a spatula creates an incredible charred crust while also making the burger patties thin. This is the perfect burger method to use when making a double-stack. You still get a tasty, beefy flavor but aren’t overwhelmed by a ginormous burger patty. The homemade rolls, fresh lettuce and tomato, crisp onion and pickle – paired with the fresh beef – make for a awesome and delectable meal. You really don’t need anything else… Well, maybe a beer!
I hope you love this tavern burger just as much as I do!
