The 3 Little Piggies Burger

The 3 Little Piggies Burger

Once upon a time, there were three little chefs who were ready to test their cooking skills in their own restaurant.  Before they went out on their venture, their mother said “Whatever you do, make the most unique burger so everyone keeps coming back because that is the only way you will survive in this economy.”

The first little chef bought a pre-made pub burger that the store sold because that was the easiest way to serve the customers.

The second little chef bought ground turkey because he thought people would eat more if they thought the meat was healthier.

The third little chef decided that a ground pork burger with bacon would make the people sit up and take notice.

One day, the big bad food critic came into their restaurant.  He was skeptical and wanted these chefs to work for his hard earned money.  He said, “Order in, order in, Little Chef, or I’ll huff and grump and turn a bad review in.”

The little chef said, “Taste my burger it is the best of my kin.”

The critic took one bite and threw it at the little chef and knocked him out cold with his pre-made patty.

Next the critic decided to try the turkey burger.  He said, “Order in, order in, Little Chef, or I’ll huff and grump and turn a bad review in.”

The next little chef said, “Taste my burger it is the best of my kin.”

The critic took one bite and nearly choked because it was so dry.  He whipped it at the little chef who ducked out of the way.  The burger was so dry that it shattered against the wall and its shrapnel killed the second little chef.

Finally, the critic was ready to try the burger from the third little chef.

He said, “Order in, order in, Little Chef, or I’ll huff and grump and turn a bad review in.”

The next little chef said, “Taste my burger it is the best of my kin.”

The critic took a bite and the third little chef stood there shaking as he watched the critic eat.  The critic slowly smiled as he ate the last bite of his burger.  He finally said, “Little Chef, the challenge you met and so a great review your restaurant will get.”

The little chef smiled and shook the man’s hand and lived happily ever after with his “3 Little Piggies” burger in high demand.

The 3 Little Piggies Burger
Recipe type: Main
 
Ingredients
  • 8 slices of bacon (4 raw, 4 cooked) (I use center cut bacon)
  • 1 tsp. of fresh garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp fresh sage
  • 1-pound ground pork
  • Salt & pepper
Instructions
  1. On your cutting board, chopped the raw bacon until is minced very small.
  2. Combine raw bacon, garlic, sage, ground pork, salt and pepper.
  3. Divide mixture into fourths and make burger patties.
  4. On a preheated grill (medium-high), grill about 5 minutes with grill cover closed.
  5. Flip the burger, lower the heat to medium and cook another 6 minutes. This is pork so it needs to be 160 degrees in the center. If you poke it in the center, it should be firm not mushy.
  6. Serve on your favorite bun with toppings of coleslaw and an additional slice of your cooked bacon.

I hope you enjoyed my story and try the recipe.  The moral of the story is when making your burgers take the time to think outside of the box.  You never know when a food critic will taste your food!
