It started out innocently enough. EatWisconsin (a fellow food blogger) tweeted to AJ Bombers (a great burger joint in downtown Milwaukee) about a possible burger combination: Orange Marmalade and Bacon Burgers.
Melissa happened to see that tweet and thought it would be a great idea for a burger. When she showed the tweet to me, I concurred.
Ah, yes. There it sits. I opted for the marmalade on the bottom. We used supreme lean ground beef and seasoned the patties with seasoned salt, garlic powder and black pepper. We used potato buns. And the bacon? Well, there was only one choice: Nueske's. Applewood-smoked bacon, to be precise.
The burger was great, but a tad overdone. (It wasn't as juicy as it could have been.) But the crisp, smoky bacon and the sweet marmalade were great contrasts. Dell. Ish. Us.
A note for the future. This burger is just a bit messy:
