Have you ever had a burger that makes you want to stomp your feet and fist bump the person sitting next to you? That’s exactly what we did the first time we ate at Grease Burger Bar in West Palm Beach, FL a few years ago. I remember biting into the Sweet Caroline burger for the first time, and thinking that it was simply the most amazing thing I had tasted in a very long time. It’s topped with Vermont White Cheddar, bacon, and sweet barbecue sauce, and I always add the onion jam for an extra awesome kick. Chef Jess and Chef Fresh usually build their own, but like to keep it simple…with the emphasis on the meat (which is so incredibly juicy!)
We try to make a pit stop each time we’re in town, but it’s usually several months before we’re able to. That’s an eternity for burger lovers like us. Sooo….. we have worked really hard to come up with a recipe that truly rivals our beloved Grease burgers!
We started by creating a list of what we LOVE in a burger. Juiciness was top on the list because we all agreed that a dry burger is “a waste of meat.” Chef Jess said that the cheese choice is big on her list, while Chef Fresh added that bacon is a non-negotiable. My big thing is texture, and I like a bit of a crunch in my burger which can come from crisp lettuce. But I really wanted to add crispy fried red onions for an extra pop of crunch. 🙂
