Granny Burger

Last week, we set off on a trek to Niagara Falls and back. We saw a lot of beautiful places and ate some amazing food. Now begins the task of duplicating and altering to be absolutely perfect. First up, a Granny Burger that I had at the Hard Rock Cafe in Canada.

This will look like a lot of steps, but actually very simple.

First, create your burger. What I was served was a simple beef burger without any ordinary taste. I chose to add my usual line up of burger flavor with pepper, garlic powder, worchstershire sauce and cumin. Make the burgers, throw on the grill and move on to the rest of the meal.

I threw a red onion in a pan to saute, but grilling the onion would work. Saute or grill the onion to your taste.

In a small bowl, mix together equal parts yellow mustard and maple syrup. Once mixed, pop in the fridge until you are ready for it.

Here's where Granny comes in the picture. Thinly slice a Granny Smith apple, do not peel.

Of course, it would not be a burger without bacon. Cook up 2 slices of bacon per burger while your onions are still cooking.

Ok, we must now assemble this fabulous burger:

1 Toasted Bun with your amazing maple mustard mix slathered on both insides
Several thin slices of Granny Smith apple
Grilled or sauted red onion
Drape with a slice of Provolone Cheese
Top with two slices of bacon and top bun.
Eat and be amazed!

This is sweet and savory in every bite!
