pretzelburgers

I love burgers. They’re possibly one of the most perfect foods, a wonderful combination of just charred meat, melted cheese, smoky bacon and perhaps even a pickle. Problem is, I can only really ever eat one good burger – and who wants to do that? That’s why sliders are great, giving us diminutive burgers that let us stuff our faces multiple times.

To make it even better? Use a pretzel bun. I love laugenbrotchen; lye soaked breads that are dipped in the alkaline solution before being baked. It helps increase the Maillard reaction, leading to a deliciously chewy, tasty as hell bread. I’ll have a dozen.

Here’s the news we didn’t post because we were too busy looking at ridiculous bottles of rum. Rum is gross, who drinks that anyway?

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
