I present the Sir Juicy John burger #nameadishchallenge
A Juicy John but bigger and better
FoodTribe, You all know I had to bring this burger back for this challenge. I am going to make a bold claim here. The original Juicy John burger was the first dish to be named after a FoodTriber. I will give 50 tribe coins to the person that proves me wrong, I think my coins are safe. Now lets get into this new and improved burger.
This burger is based on a Juicy Lucy style of burger, hence the name Juicy John. For this one I used a quarter pound ground sirloin beef patty that I flattened a little and started layering on the goodness.
I started with two slices of American cheese for that nice gooiness. Then a layer of thinly sliced chicken chorizo, followed by a layer of uncured Spanish chorizo, then topped with a slice of Swiss cheese. I am sorry I missed the photo with the Swiss on top. On top of all this went another quarter pound patty of ground sirloin. I sealed the edges of the two patties to make sure they would not leak and on the grill it went. I added a slice of American and Swiss cheese to melt on top.
As we all know John loves some Maccas special sauce from the Big Mac, so it was only fitting that a burger named after him should have a similar special sauce. So I mixed up some thousand island, mustard, pickle juice, garlic powder, onion powder and just a little cayenne.
We all know John loves some chorizo and eggs, so I thought this burger really needed a nice fried egg as well.
The buns were nice brioche buns toasted on the grill to near perfection. There is no way a soft bun could hold up to this kind of abuse.
Time to build
On the bottom bun goes some sliced onions, followed by the Juicy John burger patty and a few extra pieces of the Spanish chorizo with the fried egg sitting on top. On the top bun I spread on the special sauce. I tried adding lettuce but it was not working out well.
I must say this burger is not for the faint of heart but it is a great tasting burger for sure. Prepare to dislocate your jaw in order to get a proper bite though. This is the first burger I ever got proper cheese pull from, I wish I could have got a picture of that. Believe it or not this burger does not fall apart after the first bite either. I must admit, I could not finish eating it but I tried my best FoodTribe.
Look at the layers of beef, cheese, and chorizo
I could not finish it
In conclusion you all this is a great burger named after a great guy that I have gotten to know over the last year and a bit.
Cheers to you Sir Juicy John Coleman!
