Stacking a Burger

Rocky Road | Mar 10, 2012 05:48 PM

I feel a little sheepish by asking this because, after all, it's just a burger. Then I got really curious. Although I make a variety of burgers, my go-to burger is with lettuce, tomato, onion, bread and butter pickle, on a toasted bun. I never put mayo, sometimes put a very small amount of ketchup, always put mustard.

I stack it in the following manner: 1) bottom bun, 2) mustard, 3) meat, 4) pickles, 5) onions, 6) tomatoes, 7) lettuce, 8) a little ketchup and mustard, 9) top bun.

However, I really don't know why I stack it like that, or if it is the best way given those toppings. I've Googled and there seems to be many ways to stack a burger. How do you do it? Or, how would you do it with my toppings above?

The only thing I did a little differently tonight was carmalize the onions.
