On Friday, we had a burger off as a special birthday dinner. Recently, Erich has been obsessed with Asian ingredients...miso, sesame oil, rice vinegar, and bonito flakes. He puts one or all into and onto everything! It's pretty fantastic! For his burger he made an "unami" pesto (roasted mushrooms, miso, garlic, bonito flakes, etc.). He also made parmesan crackers, and roasted tomatoes to top his burger.

Brussel Sprout Burger by me
For my burger, I sautéed brussel sprouts, garlic, and red onion with a little bit of olive oil and fish sauce. I topped my burger with whole grain mustard, gouda, avocado and the brussel sprout mixture. Both burgers were delicious! Originally we had planned to make a third burger to share with the winning burger, but they were both so good! So we combined the ingrediants to make the final burger, and it ended up being the most delicious! Go figure.
