Win Spike's New Good Stuff Cookbook

Hey, commenterati! Want to win a copy of chef Spike Mendelsohn's brand new The Good Stuff Cookbook? Tell me what you love on a burger in the comments, and I'll pick a winner at 10 a.m. Thursday morning.

The Good Stuff Cookbook, available May 31, includes more than 120 recipes for burgers, fries, condiments, shakes, salads and desserts. You'll find recipes for favorites from his Capitol Hill burger joint Good Stuff Eatery, like Spike’s village fries with fresh rosemary and thyme, Sriracha mayonnaise and the legendary toasted marshmallow milkshake.

Watch Metrocurean later today for the book's recipe for a farmhouse bacon cheeseburger. I didn't want to do that to you before lunch...

I'll try not to drool on my keyboard as I write: I love burgers with fresh crisp lettuce, cheese, maybe a slice of bacon or two? And then ketchup with a little mayo spread on the bun. Yum.

Carrie said...

Really smoky bacon and a fried egg. The combination of the yolk and the burger is soooo delicious.

Alexandra Lewin said...

Marinated mushrooms and caramelized onions. Crusty roll. Yum.

Rachael said...

Bleu cheese, bacon and mushrooms- an unbeatable combination!

Elyse said...

I know it sounds simple, but I love a good piece of swiss cheese on a burger.

lindelle said...

I love all type of toppings, but my favorite are: advocado (love guacamole more though!), brie, portabello mushrooms and hot peppers for some spiciness :)

Emily Bever said...

Provolone or swiss cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles and mustard-so much mustard that it squirts out of the bun when you take that first bite!

Debra said...

pickles are a must!

BC said...

Mmmmmm, I love me a burger with sharp cheddar cheese, caramelized onions, sauteed mushrooms, a thinly sliced tomato, and some jalapeno peppers.

Julia said...

While I really love the fancy stuff on my burgers-- caramelized onions, blue cheese, mushrooms, etc-- if I'm really craving a burger, all I want on it is processed American "cheese," pickles, ketchup, and some lettuce or thin red onion if I want to go the extra mile.

John Dewar said...

Can't beat a good chili-bacon-cheddar burger...

Stacey Viera said...

Sauteed mushrooms. Melted cheddar. Bacon. Traditional. Delicious.

And now...I'm dying for a burger.

I'm so old fashioned: cheddar, lettuce, tomato, onion (raw, not grilled), ketchup, mustard, mayo.

I love avocado, caramelized onions, mayo, and blue cheese. I don't think all of those together (haha) but I like those ingredients whenever I can get them.

Ladies Who Brunch said...

I go for the basics--give me lettuce, tomato, cheese, ketchup, and mustard and I'm set!

Avocado and pepperjack cheese!

sonharmuito said...

Avocado is a must. Toasted bun. Onions lightly stirfried- I want some crunch. Lettuce please. Spicey cheese- give me something with a bite.

Lettuce, tomato, onions and pickles with a thick slice of monterey jack cheese melted over all of it like a blanket with ketchup, spicy brown mustard and some hot sauce in a toasted bun.

It is not what is on the burger, but what is in it that makes it for me... I am a huge fan of Lamb Burgers! You can top them with just about anything.

I love green olives on a burger, but have a hard time finding a restaurant that offers them as a topping. They're especially good with a sharp cheddar and mustard.

It's a heart attack waiting to happen, but beef marrow on a nice juicy sirloin burger is an absolutely decadent heaven.

I must have the recipe for the Good Stuff siracha mayo! I've been trying to recreate it at home and am convinced there's something more to this than siracha and mayo. What is the secret? It's killing me...

I am going to join the chorus of blue cheese lovers, and add arugula, tomato, and a layer of spicy brown mustard.

Ciggy76 said...

Burger and Milk Shake recipes. What more can you hope for?
