That bad boy is the make-at-home version of Kerbey Lane’s “Boss” burger. It’s one of those things I’d happily just let Kerbey Lane make for me… but in 4 years of asking on Twitter, they have still yet to open a Houston location.
Now that it’s warm again (I wasn’t so sure we’d ever see the day), we’ve put Fancy Burger Night back on the weekly menu. The first Fancy Burger Night of 2014 was celebrated with The Boss: a cheeseburger with bacon, a fried egg, verde sauce, and, at home – pico de gallo.
The Boss Burger
A cheeseburger topped with crispy bacon, a fried egg, tangy verde sauce, and fresh pico de gallo.
Even before the last of those lovely bacon jam-filled pretzel rolls disappeared, I’d already staked out the idea of combining the bacon jam with cranberries for a spread-on-anything and stuff-in-everthang twist on cranberry sauce.
The original attempt of turning bacon jam into cranberry-bacon jam failed. Well, as much as something called “bacon jam” could fail. While tasty – and then, of course, still completely devoured – there was simply just too much bacon. A feat that I didn’t even know was possible before!
So I turned cranberry chutney into bacon-cranberry chutney instead. Plenty of tart cranberries and just enough bacon to turn the sweet and savory and smokey chutney into a “just one more spoonful won’t hurt” spread.
