Buffaloaded Burger = Deliciousness!!

If you lived in Jacksonville about 5 years ago, you probably ate at Times Grill before they turned all of them into Bubba Burgers.. BOO! Times Grill had this amazing burger call the Buffaloaded Burger. I was obsessed with it. JJ lived close to a Times Grill and we would go every Saturday for lunch to nurse our hangovers and have fun. It was a great atmosphere and good food so a win-win when you aren't feeling at your best. 

What makes this burger so amazing? Well, other than the fact that they use a delicious and secret (well, secret from me) hot sauce? Th Frizzled Spicy Onion Straws are AH-MAZING (said in the voice of Penny from "Happy Endings"). The onion straws add a nice crunch to the burger to top off the burger. 

I was devastated when the restaurant closed down. We were looking for something to make for dinner on Saturday night and I mentioned to JJ how much I was craving a Buffaloaded Burger. So, JJ suggested that we look online for the recipe.  I was incredibly excited and surprised when I found the recipe right away. Of course we had to try it out immediately. 

Please ignore the fact that the burger is not on a bun. I hate hamburger buns!

We paired our burger with Mac n' cheese and an Intuition Peoples Pale Ale. Intuition is a local brewery to Jacksonville and has delicious beers. 

I hope that you enjoy it as much as we did!
