I figured you all would suss me out on that one. Yeah, it's a portobello "burger".

Delicious, tho. Caramelized onion and provolone. Buns toasted nicely in butter so the inside was crisp. Sweet potatoes and onions in the side.

And Stone IPA to drink.
 
That actually sounds so good!
It is!

I'm no vegetarian/vegan and I love a good burger. As you've seen from other burgers I've posted here. In fact, we call these portobello burgers but don't consider them a "burger" in the sense of being a meat replacement. It's just a delicious portobello sandwich in its own right.
 
It’s been awhile since I’ve posted, been trying to eat moderately lately. But here is a banger I had the pleasure of taste testing today at work.

I work at a minor league baseball stadium with admittedly sub-par food. The supervisor of food services grabbed me today to try a burger they want to run a special on.

Two 8oz patties, bacon, avocado, American cheese, and fried egg on a pretzel bun. It was fantastic! He made a chipotle sauce for dipping as well. Nice and spicy.

This is a work in progress but it’s a great start!

Looks great! I'd eat that.
 
It was great, but I told him they should consider offering a single patty version. First off, it’s massive. Second, stadium prices are insane. $35 for the double.
Yeah, and a lot of people are going to look at a double burger amassing an entire pound of beef as being too much. I would, quite frankly, and that's as someone who makes 6 oz patties and makes double burgers for my son and I when I do burgers, so we each eat 3/4 lb of beef lol.

Also you should tell him that by having a double burger on the menu alongside the single burger, it'll drive a LOT more sales of the single. Marketing studies have commonly shown that restaurants will often put a lavish and expensive item on their menu not because they want people to order it, but because they want to have something on the menu that people look at and it makes all the prices of the other items "seem" less expensive.

If I was in a ballpark I'd probably avoid a $35 double burger. But it would make a $22 single burger seem way more normal and appealing than if a $22 single burger was the most expensive burger on the menu.

(See a book by Dan Ariely, Predictably Irrational, for more if you want the background on the menu stuff.)
