Would you like fries with that?

Seriously.
Check out the size of this burger!

It's huge!

123 lbs!


Well, I don't know if I'll ever want a burger this size
but I do enjoy a good sized burger now and then...


After reading all the comments
left about dressing your burgers on my giveaway post
I came up with an extensive list of toppings that I now MUST try!


some that surprised me
and some that just sound soooo good


Maybe you'd like to try some of these too...

mushrooms
avocado
sweet chili sauce
grilled pineapple
chutney
Heinz 57 sauce
wasabi mayo
chilli
tabbouleh
sprouts
"all-i-oli" (garlic sauce)
bell peppers
fried egg
quacamole
A1 Steak sauce


Some had very particular taste in onions:

carmelized onions
red onion
vidalia onion
french fried onions
onion straws


And some made their choice of cheeses clear:

cheddar
melted hot pepper cheese
swiss
cambazola
bleu cheese
pepperjack


What really shocked me:
BEETROOT?!!!

hmmmm....

this is apparently an Australian thing
I happen to LOVE Australian bloggers
so I'll let this one go :)

(they also call Ketchup, tomato sauce--weird, I know)


And this was a real shocker!

PEANUT BUTTER??!!
Really?

Skippy??


hmmmmm....

I don't know that I'm that brave....


This was the most creative sounding of them all however
The comment came from Digital Misfit at

"One of the strangest burgers that I have ever had

was at this fascinating place called The Works.

There you can order 100% beef burgers with the strangest toppings

you would never imagine.

My partner and I decided to go and choose the scariest burger for each other.

For him, I chose a beef burger topped with

poached pear slices, honey, carmelized onions and blue cheese.

For me, he chose one that had

beet slices, pineapple, carmelized onions, and a fried egg!

It was surprisingly tasty!"

okay--I'll take your word for it...



But the one I'm really excited to try is

french fries directly on my burger!


I already like potato chips

so fries are like their cousins...


aren't they?


hmmmmm.....


after I catch up on all these new blogs

I'm seriously going to have me a very

CREATIVE

hamburger!


Bon Appetit!

LOL. That is so disgusting. It's also hard to wrap my head around how large that really is!

Oooo Works Burger - my DH's favourite place for dinner - they serve their drinks in measuring cups and bring burgers you can't possibly finish alone!

If you're ever in Ottawa it's totally worth stopping in for lunch. The sweet potato fries are amazing too!
