  • Ground chuck is a great all-purpose, buy-it-anywhere choice for burgers. But if you want to get ambitious and blend, say, chuck with ground short rib or brisket, we say go for it.

                    American cheese is not a real cheese.
                    Why dont you use cheddar cheese, or provolone.

                            There is a place in Ft Worth called Kincades that fixes that same burger and that place has been there since I think back in the 30s. It was a small grocery store with the hamburger stand in the back and they had a special thing with the stock yards so fresh beef was abundant!

                                                        When Carla mentions the "custards" that you could get at Shake Shack, I get confused because I picture the sweet, kinda thick vanilla sauce (stereotypical french custard etc). Is she talking about a type of milkshake, or am I just being a dummy?

It _did_ teach me how to cook a frozen burger! Yeah, I know, fast food sucks...but also, there's nothing wrong with cooking properly seasoned frozen patties!
