Fried duck eggs are big as hell.
This is the third #foodiefight for me and Adam. The first foodiefight was Bologna Sandwiches; his the traditional way and I chose to do an upgraded version. Want to see? Here’s mine and his, and the second #foodiefight was a nacho competition (I gave him 3 ingredients to use and he wasn’t very happy with me) – see mine and his. Hey, it was a fair fight!!
Today’s #foodiefight is all about the burgers.
This is a mixture of half ground round and half Italian sausage, seasoned with just salt and pepper and a little Worcestershire sauce. Both buns are toasted and buttered. The bottom bun is dressed with Thousand Island dressing, caramelized balsamic sweet onions and sliced mushrooms, and deep fried jalapeno peppers.
That’s followed by the burger done about medium well, topped with melted Muenster cheese and an over medium duck egg for a really nice runny yolk.
Ok, so fresh-from-the-farm eggs really gross Mark out, like to the point that I can’t have them visible in the kitchen. I seriously think that if I crack one of those bastards open in his presence he’ll be certain that the fucking zombie apocalypse will most certainly immediately ensue. How about we clean the microscopic shit off of the shells – oh I don’t know…like we do lettuce, peppers, fruits, etc. SAME SHIT, yo. We’re cleaning off dirt from the fucking ground where the animals SHIT.
FYI I’m not an animal hater – they’re just gross as hell, especially if they think they need to be inside (that would never happen in this house, trust me). I would love to have my own chickens in my back yard, however. I want the Tiffany blue colored eggs. What?? There’s such a thing as Easter eggers. They give you pretty little blue eggs and what not.
Back to the burger –
So, duck eggs are no joke – they’re big as all hell. Seriously, I thought this yolk would never stop running. That’s not a bad thing – especially when you’re shooting pics!
The combination of fried jalapenos, Italian sausage in the burger and that damn egg was OMG. Not to mention the balsamic onions and mushrooms. Yes, it’s a knife and fork burger. I’m not a-damn-shamed.
Is it indulgent? Um, yep. What do you think?
