A burger is a sandwich. And an open-faced sandwich is a sandwich. So it stands to reason that an open-faced burger is a sandwich, too.

Especially if the burger includes thick-sliced, fatty bacon; pickled onions; black bread; and a venison patty. Also, when I say “fatty” bacon, I suspect you may not fully understand just how fatty I mean. This is a country where many bars and restaurants include, well, simply slices of pork fat on their menu. This particular bar/restaurant happened to serve its slice of pork fat attached to the rest of the slice of bacon, on top of a patty of venison, and below rings of pickled onion, with the whole kaboodle being on a slice of black bread. Fucking delicious.

Bacon Egg O’Muffin

What do you do when english muffins, bacon, and eggs are all discounted at the grocery store? This:

Bacon Egg O'Muffin, open configuration

That’s what the unfailingly polite B. E. O’Muffin looks like when he’s respectfully doffing his cap. And here’s what he looks like with that cap on. Either way, delicious.

Bacon Egg O'Muffin, closed configuration

Making the eggs sunny-side-up results in a delicious yolksplosion all over the place after (or, sometimes, before) the first bite. (Yolksplosion not pictured, because it would have involved subjecting my camera to collateral damage.)

Bacon Veggie Burger

An odd paradox of food, I ordered this veggie burger with bacon. It was at a Jimmy Buffett-owned burger restaurant my sister took me to. It’s a fairly standard bacon cheeseburger, featuring lettuce, tomato, onions, cheddar cheese, and so on, except I requested to have a veggie burger patty. You can get any burger there as a veggie burger.

Really, most of the time, I could hardly tell that it wasn’t a real bacon cheeseburger. Sometimes, of course, a bite should’ve been meatier than it was, and I could tell it was a veggie patty. But really, I don’t see THAT big of a difference… I guess I’m not that picky when it comes to food. Oh, also, the sweet potato chips were really good. Mmm.

Funny story, actually, my sister ordered a BBQ veggie burger or something, but wound up getting a mushroom swiss veggie burger by mistake. They prepared her the correct burger, and I got a free bonus burger out of the deal. Plus the restaurant also covered one of her drinks. So a free mixed drink and a free burger! Now THAT’s service! We left a nice tip.

Chicken Explosion

Here’s a subwich I got in mid-July, same weekend as Otakon.

My friend came up from Florida, and we went to the mall at some point, and stopped by the food court, where I picked up this tasty sandwich. I mostly got it because of the ridiculous name.

It’s been a while since I actually ate it, so I don’t remember all of what’s in it. But I remember it tasted alright.

Chicken salad—with bacon.

Chicken salad—with bacon.
This was rather a delicious sandwich, and quite substantial as well—the picture only shows you two of the four quarters. Should be pretty self-explanatory.

I guess you could even call it a BLT with chicken salad, rather than a chicken salad sandwich with bacon, but that raises the issue of which meat is primary and which is secondary. Bacon is usually relegated to second fiddle, acting as some kind of modifier (e.g., “cheesesteak [with bacon]”, “[bacon] cheeseburger”, “[baconated] manwich”); unless it’s the sole meat (“BLT”) or present in ridiculous and attention-whoring quantities (“Wendy’s Baconator”). In this case, I could go either way. Chicken salad is normally a primary meat, and it would be perfectly reasonable to call bacon an adjunct; but the the third bun in this sandwich performs an interesting function, separating the chicken salad from what would otherwise be a complete and fully-formed BLT. So it’s really almost two sandwiches in one, conjoined twins sharing a common bun.

California chicken club.

California chicken club.

Reasonably tasty. I think you get more meat if you order it as a wrap, though.
