...Apparently I'm an abnormal, eccentric aristocrat

...I like Dijon mustard on a cheeseburger and really dislike ketchup on it. Ketchup is a tad overwhelming, IMHO; sweet mustards tend to be more complementary.

Anyone else prefer mustard to ketchup on a burger? If they eat burgers?

 

 

Also: How the living fuck has this become a Conservative talking point?

Miracle Whip and spicy brown mustard.

I don't eat ketchup by

I don't eat ketchup by itself.  It works great in a barbecue sauce, though.  On my burger, I prefer cheese, mayo, and either spicy or yellow mustard.

If I had the choice between a cheese burger and almost any other kind of sandwich I would probably not pick the cheese burger. As sandwiches go it's not that appealing.

OK, here is the deal, when I run, everyone vote for me. When I win, I will make sure that the president does proper photo ops. Like we work for about an hour in the morning and then hop on air force one for a quick flight to Phoneix and a trip to the heart attack grill.

D:

I prefer cheeseburgers to have mustard and pickles. Maybe onion.

 

I hate ketchup on burgers. I'll accept a tomatoe slice at best, but not ketchup.

oh, and i like ketchup and mustard both on a burger, but mainly i need a thick slice of red onion and melted pepperjack.

I suppose it depends on one's preference, but good advice probably wouldn't hurt either.  When I lived in Tokyo I ate lunch at matsuya and yoshinoya 4 or 5 times a week beause there's one on almost every block but I wouldn't think that you can't get a good meal in Tokyo or that yoshinoya is the best representation of japanese cuisine.

I just find it bizarre that people seem to be so taken with the idea of salty, greasy, fried mince meat with cheese on it that I wouldn't feed to my dog.

No idea. Homemade hamburgers are very, very different from the greasy nastiness you get at restaurants. In North America, one is largely forced to cook at home (with the exception of some decent restaurants that are difficult to find). In my opinion, a properly prepared steak sandwich is to be preferred.

The Burger Bar is still the absolute best red meat on the planet IMHO. I went there yesterday for a Black Angus on an Onion bun with peppered bacon, guacamole and no mayo. Business expense, some of us do travel to Vegas on business really.

That's fucked up.  I

That's fucked up.  I learned to like the flavour of the soap my mum used.  There was a bubble gum that tasted quite like it and back then penny candies did exist, so I ate it in order that I would not mind the soap.

On the topic of burgers, I prefer a spicey mustard, perhaps some kethup and mayonnaise, cheese, something sharp like an aged cheddar or, if the burger is particularly well seasoned, something like edam and perhaps with only very little horse radish.  Now that I think about, though, there is no consistency to my burger topings.  What goes on must compliment the meat and the bun and fit with my taste at the moment.  Obama pales in comparison to my abnormal, eccentric, aristocratism and you can all suck it or eat a well-toped burger!

 Just cooked up a batch

 Just cooked up a batch today on my new cast iron griddle.  Four minutes a side to just a hair above medium rare with a yogurt/blue cheese dressing (homemade, of course) on the bottom bun.  The meat juices mixed with the yogurt to make the sauce richer, and that was all the condiment or topping I needed.

I was happy and about to go

I was happy and about to go to bed 10 min ago. Now I am thawing out hamburger meat...

As for my $.02, I like spicy mustard with a little onion, bacon and some cheese. Maybe some A-1 or BBQ sauce if I'm feeling frisky. Ketchup is for French fries, not burgers.

Nobody's said anything about

Nobody's said anything about relish! My favorite easy burger topping is ketchup and relish mixed together. I am truly a ketchup lover though; I eat large quantities of it on my burgers & fries. I also looove pickles - my ex used to think it was disgusting that I would eat pickles straight out of the jar (and like, half a jar in one sitting), but now I'm dating someone who's also crazy about pickles, so we support each others' habit.

I guess when I'm in a more "elitist" mood, I like to make... (wait for it 804).... GREEK BURGERS! Some of the people I talk to in Skype know about it already, but it's a recipe I made up. Cook ground beef using olive oil, oregano, and basil as seasoning. (regular taco-style ground beef, not pressed into hamburger patties) When the meat is cooked, mix in with chopped up olives and feta cheese. You can also add Greek or Feta dressing, though I usually don't. Scoop the mixture into pita pockets. Done!

you and my brother would get along.  he gobs ketchup on everything, including mashed potatoes.  he mixes ketchup into his mashed potatoes until they're a pink mess.  sometimes i have to leave the table.  he's also the same with kraft grated parmesan.  whenever he eats pizza or spaghetti he carefully layers on parmesan until you can no longer see or taste what's underneath.

i'm with you here.  i eat whole jars of pickles like they were snack-sized bags of potato chips.  my wife sometimes sarcastically asks me if i'm pregnant.

i only like dill pickles though, not sweet.  my grandmother made the best dill pickles in the world, but sadly they died with her.  we have her recipe but nobody can get it right.  the best part was always the one or two cloves of garlic she would pickle in each jar.  i would always eat those first.  my dad and my uncles used to fight over them when they were kids.
