Fast Food at Home!

I don't remember the last time I had a fast food burger.  Actually, I think this was the last time.  Last night we made our own "fast food" including juicy lucy burgers, which are burgers filled with cheese.

I filled mine with gruyere and havarti:

Christopher's were stuffed with poison blue cheese (stilton and roquefort):

We made six thinner patties, filled three with cheese and then smushed on another patty, making three fat burgers.  They looked really big, but they shrunk on the BBQ, and were perfectly cooked and just the right size for our small whole wheat buns.

We had homemade fries on the side (2 rustic potatoes sliced into shoe-string thin fries, soaked in cold water for an hour, tossed with salt, pepper and shallot olive oil, baked @ 375 for about 45 minutes and broiled for 15).  They were super crispy!

Get in mahh belly!

Are you a fan of burgers and fries?  
Have you ever had a juicy lucy burger?
What are your favourite fast food burger restaurants?

Oooh, nice, I've never made a stuffed burger before. Those fries are gorgeous! I can't actually remember the last time I had a fast food (veggie) burger, but I do recall liking A&W's.

I love that you plated your food as if you were out for dinner. Those burgers look amazing and I am a total sucker for crispy fries!!

I LOVE burgers. There is a great place in Minneapolis that makes delicious juicy lucys. It's a total whole in the wall kind of place, but I love it.

I love a good burger and fries! We make them at home a lot too with different meats and toppings.
Sonic is one of my favorite fast food burgers. I miss having them around after a long night :)
