The Summer Big Kahuna Burger
As Samuel L Jackson referred to it in Pulp Fiction, “This is a tasty burger!”
Only this one is a Get Real Living version, without the grain and sugar laden bread and the patty has a special hint of pizzazz.
I made this burger last night for the family knowing it would be easy to add bread for those that wanted it and subtract for those who ate grain free.
Since it was a stinking hot day, those without the bread were rather pleased with the size of the meal. However, those with the bread found it to be quite a large and filling burger. Since I gave my dad two of them, it would have been quite a feat to get through both and the look on his face afterwards said indeed it was.
So do keep serving size in mind, especially if its hot out (we all like to eat a little less when its hot yes?).
