The Roadhouse

A couple weeks ago my brother and my boyfriend became a little obsessed with a website called Cheese & Burger which seems to have been set up by the Wisconsin Cheese Company. It's a very flashy website which proudly promotes 30 different cheeseburgers, most of which one person cannot eat alone. A very manly-man's voice announces each burger as you click through the pages and drool over the completely over-the-top creations.

Boyfriend and brother spent most of a work day deciding which one they wanted and would ultimately make that very night. I did manage to get a word in and we ended up going for Number 13: The Roadhouse.

Featuring Gruyere, garlic mayonnaise, bacon, caramelized onions AND onion rings, this is a monster burger you better be eating alone or with friends who won't soon smell your breath.

I think we did a pretty god job re-creating it. Kris could barely wait for me to take a picture of the darn thing, practically shouting: "OHMYGOD ITS GETTING COLD!" Yes. Kris takes his burgers very seriously- as would anyone who would attempt to make such an overloaded but tasty burger.

The Roadhouse
The Toppings & Fixings
  • Gruyere cheese
  • Beef patty
  • Caramelized onions
  • Bacon
  • Onion rings
  • Garlic mayonnaise
  • Toasted onion roll
Preheat oven to 375

Start out making your onion rings. Just dredge your slices onions into some flour which you've seasoned with powdered mustard, salt and pepper. Fry in oil until golden and crispy. Drain on paper towel.

Meanwhile you can caramelize your sliced onions in another pan by slowly sauteing them with some butter.

Throw your buns in the oven to toast them for a bit

Cook up your beef patty in the same pan you used to saute the onions.

Assemble from bottom to top: onion roll bottom, caramalized onions, onion rings, beef patty, Gruyere, bacon, garlic mayonnaise, onion roll top

Try not to devour it in one bite. It's no joke.
