The Bob’s Burgers Burger Book is everything a Bob’s Burger disciple hopes and dreams it might be. I tried to get a hold of someone over at Universe publishing to get permission to share a recipe with you. No response. So, I started scanning the Burger of the Day board this season for possibilities that hadn’t made the book. The Blanc Canvas. <snore> Topless o’ the Mornin’ to You Burger. Okay, Irish flavor profile without the top bun. Trying to lift and convey a burger to your face with a burger precariously perched on just a bottom bun. Who does that?! Awkward, at best. It’s the stuff of horror movies, really. How about nestling that burger on a bed of salty oven roasted fries? Yeah… Since we’re going to have to bring a knife and fork into this, we can take advantage of that and make an oozier sauce. A béchamel with Irish cheddar. I want more flavor. Let’s blast that burger with horseradish, and top it all with sweet, Guinness-glazed onions. Mmmmm. Yeah, I’m in.
My review of the book with my pics and thoughts on the burgers we tried is below the recipe.
