I had the BEST time in Ohio this past week. I will probably have lots to say in future posts about my experience. But to start, let me tell you about a little something I had in Vermilion, Ohio, a beautiful seaside town on Lake Erie.
At a cute diner walking distance from the beach, I saw on the menu something that screamed my name.
So here's how you can recreate my amazing, life-changing experience...
The Peanut Butter Burger
3 sweet pickle chips (not crunchy chips, you silly, pickle slices)
1 heaping tablespoon of peanut butter
Grill your favorite burger to perfection. But don't make some fancy burger patty with tons of spices in it. Let a plain burger speak for itself, and marry the beef flavor with the peanut butter flavor. Toast the bun. While the bun is still hot, spread the peanut butter on the inside of the top bun. Place the three pickle chips on the burger, and put the top bun on the burger. Let the burger sit for a few minutes so the peanut butter can melt onto the burger. Now you can enter the pearly white gates...
Note: The waitress told me to resist the temptation to doctor up the burger with lettuce, ketchup, mustard, etc. Instead, let the simple combination of burger, peanut butter, and pickle work their magic on you.
