    Great fun.
    I’ll probably start the hamburger wars, but… In the summer I DO like a nice slice of a very meaty (not juicy) beefsteak tomato on top of my burger with raw or lightly grilled sweet onion beneath the patty. Need a sturdy bun, but no “sauce” is necessary. No cheese (too slippery with the tomato).

    In the past I would load up a burger with condiments but not anymore. Sometimes the burger just wants to be alone; that way it lets the meaty flavor be savored, not covered up.
