It's the weekend, so I got you some "beautiful" burgers! They're from the Hamburger Cookbook (1977) in Betty Crocker's 4 in 1 Cookbook Collection (1980).
Love a burger with a big, slimy, squash-looking thing plunked down on top of it? You're in luck!
Or is the slimy "squash" cucumber rings with raw egg yolks? Zucchini with orange juice concentrate?
It's actually not as bad as it looks. These are Taco Patties:
I'm not sure I've ever been so frightened by a picture and reassured by the actual recipe before. I might get whiplash from this one.
If your secret burger fantasy is for a sandwich that looks as if it could double as food for your pet lizard colony, then I have just the thing for you:
Mealworm burger! Just dress it up for the human diners with a sesame seed bun. (They will be grateful for anything to cover up this atrocity.)
My favorite part of this recipe might just be the variation. Would you rather just have Chow Mein? Then serve Chow Mein on a Bun... Now I hope the explanation is not too complicated for you to follow, but I'll try my best... Serve it without the bun! That's one hell of a variation.
I just hope someday I can be as creative as Betty Crocker.
