I have made dozens, maybe even hundreds, of honest attempts to love the American Burger – unfortunately, most of the time, my honest attempts have failed miserably. 😦
This includes restaurants of all price points, even when, because of its simple nature, most burgers are consumed in simple joints. (I don´t want to go into the pitiful, sorry nonsense of the $100.00 or $1000.00 burger here)
While, in a long lifetime, I had a few spectacular good ones, lots of mediocre ones and, unfortunately, hundreds of lousy ones, generally the American burger is mostly a sorry excuse of a meal or snack. Most of the time, even when it starts out as a perfectly fine little disk of decent ground beef or other protein, most of the time it will then be mistreated every step of the way until it finally reaches the inside of your mouth where you´ll mostly experience a nasty mix of  grey, tasteless dry meat, inferior buns, stale raw onions and tomatoes, limp lettuce and a few squirts of the cheapest mayo and mustard available this side of Bangladesh.
While this may sound harsh, I fully stand behind these words as being the honest truth.
Now, on the other hand, why not take this precious ground meat (beef/ pork/ game/ turkey, seafood, etc, etc, and season it well, add some more ingredients to make it light, juicy, tasty and pretty, then pair it with proper condiments and sidings.
Not MORE, but BETTER ingredients, condiments, and sides, to give puck-shaped ground protein the respect it deserves  ! 🙂
Or, maybe try the ground meat patties the rest of the World enjoys in thousands of different variation, typically starting out with ground protein, adding interesting, good ingredients to make it BETTER and more APPEALING, then serve it with STUFF that tastes good, looks good and makes one feel good, such as the little gem on this page. 🙂

Tomato Soup With Spicy Sausage & Pasta

>

Comfort  food – the moniker say’s it all – it gives you comfort and leaves you in a better state than you were before you consumed it.
And the best thing about it is that not only does it make you feel good and satisfied, it usually is also uncomplicated and easy on the wallet.
I have included spicy Italian sausage “meatballs” here since I had leftovers from yesterdays dinner. Frozen tomato soup is a staple in my freezer, since I usually make a large batch and freeze whatever I don’t eat right away. ( Empty” Crystal Light” containers are perfect and free for this). So all that was needed for this beauty of a soup was to cook the pasta, heat the soup and saute the sliced  sausages in garlic oil.
Voilà – instant great comfort and happiness 🙂
