Cheeseburger Paradise
If you are like me you really enjoy a good cheeseburger. A juicy, well-accessorized burger makes a really tasty meal. But, my issue has always been with the bun.

It is just bread, and not necessarily good bread, at that. It is filler. Something that was intended as a meat-delivery system (heh) ends up filling you up before you can finish your burger. At least, this has been my experience.

This weekend, my husband and I discovered a solution to this pesky problem. Instead of using the widely accepted hamburger bun for delivery, we chose English muffins. This choice was inspired! The English muffin (what do you think they call them in England?) stands up to the man-handling of the fingers and hands that is necessary for eating a good burger. Some wimpier buns get soggy or begin to fall apart, but not the English muffin. She stands stalwartly in the face of the juices and condiments that lead lesser buns astray.

And, even better, because the English muffin's charm lies in the nooks and crannies, she is lighter on the belly. Indeed. She is less filling and tastes great, to steal an oft-used phrased. I can eagerly report that in our home, no lesser buns will ever again be drafted into service. Henceforth, the only bun we send to the front will be an English muffin.

Try it. You might like it.

In the meantime, I am going to start calling this spin on the American classic The Hubby Burger.
