There is no doubt that the taste of the meat in the burger is important. If I can't taste the meat, what's the point? To me, simple lettuce, onion, and tomato doesn't add to the flavor of the meat. It doesn't make it special enough. I like finding the flavor combinations that make the meat seem even better. To me, for some reason the bacon & jalapeņo does the trick. It just make the meat taste sooooooo good.

Crap. I'm hungry now.

Almost anything can be good on a burger if used in the right combination. Tomatoes are the big exception I can think of. Tomatoes are never good on anything. Ice cream would be a bit iffy, but I'm sure somebody somewhere has managed to make a delicious burger with ice cream on it.

The biggest requirement for me (apart from meat preferences) is that my burger has to have lots of crispy, cool lettuce.

Has anyone tried applying the golden ratio to a beef/bacon burger? The golden ratio is nature's answer to everything except for cinema and television, in which case 16:10 is the answer.[hide]Sneaky readers may note that these numbers are nearly the same.[/hide]

A lot of people (particularly east of Utah) put cole slaw on burgers, which I've never tried but I think is brilliant. You get the juiciness of mayo, spiced up to give it flavor, and then the cabbage would give it an even better crunch than we normally get from lettuce. I need to try that.

The restaurant i used to work at had a burger that had this. I ate it all the time, it was great.

Oh, Sort my buddy, I bet you won't eat mushrooms, either.  My weird kids won't touch a home grown tomato, either, and I just picked the first ripe one from my garden.  We get a lot of summer fog, here.

My best burger has diced onion and a seasoning called Spike that one can find at Whole Foods or any self-respecting health food store.  I have included pork sausage in meat loaf, but never hamburger.  I know a kid who almost died from E. coli, so the idea of raw bacon BBQ'd with ground chuck is a bit scary.  There is always that uncooked bit in the middle. . . .

Ha ha.

I should find the picture of the chocolate covered bacon I had a while back, I already sent a picture to Dan on facebook, but I'm sure the rest of you would enjoy it. xD

I have just been informed that there is an apple pie that has bacon woven into the crust..... the verdict is not yet in on this one....

It'll probably work the same way the chocolate covered bacon, or salted nut rolls work.  The combination of saltiness and sweetness works well together.

Choclate covered bacon SUCKS!!!! However if you take cao cao and grind it yourself so it's similar to bakers choclate (except it is more like cracked pepper in texture) and season a steak with it THAT ROCKS!!!!
