Yesterday was memorable for our American friends for a couple of reasons. First, it was Martin Luther King day. Second, and perhaps equally as important, Burger King officially rolled out its new stuffed burger. (Okay, clearly the second is a little less important.)
For a limited time only, the chain is selling the Jalapeno and Cheddar BK Stuffed Steakhouse, which is a burger with the cheese and peppers built right into the patty. Mmm… cheese… patty… built right in…
Is it a gimmick? Perhaps, but the folks at Burger Business don’t think so. The blog, which likes to predict burger trends, thinks 2011 will be the year of the stuffed burger. Burger King therefore appears to be leading the charge.
As usual, we Canadians will get this late, if at all, so in the meantime we’re stuck making our own stuffed burgers. Here are some tips on how to do so. Of course, if you’ve got a craving any time soon, you’ll first have to chisel the ice off your barbecue.
