The Week’s Most Intriguing Burgers 9/2

Filed under Burger, The Week, The Week

Last time, I focused on intriguing names. Here I’m back to burgers that piqued my interest with their ingredients and looks. The top burger, from Ground Burger Bar, manages to have everything, including a memorable name. Vegetables continue to find their way onto interesting burgers: here, stewed tomatoes, sweet potatoes, kale and eggplant are used.

Enjoy the three-day holiday weekend. Have a burger and consider giving a little to No Kid Hungry.
