Does Cheeseburger Pudding sound unappetizing? Then follow the suggestion in The Culinary Bro-Down cookbook and call it “crustless cheeseburger quiche” instead, or maybe bread pudding with beef and cheese. The burgers—beef, cheese, buns, and all—are chopped up and bound with eggs, milk or cream, and extra cheddar (or whatever queso you’ve got), then gently mixed with sacred ketchup for a kind of ingenious dish perfect for brunch, dinner, or devouring right in the kitchen after you’ve had one too many. If you’re making this spur-of-the-moment some Friday or Saturday at 3 AM (as is wholly appropriate) and you don’t have any frozen burgers but you do have a Golden Arches walk-up window nearby, maybe try it with some Happy Meal cheeseburgers or quarter pounders instead. You should also try Josh Scherer‘s recipes for Cap’n Drunk Pancakes and the Ramelette.
