Pickle My Funny Bone Burger - $5.95
from Bob’s Burgers Season 3 - Episode 7: “Tina-Rannosaurus Wrecks”
So one of my favorite tumblrs around is The Bob’s Burger Experiment ( http://thebobsburgerexperiment.tumblr.com). It’s dedicated to creating the burgers on the special board in each episode of Bob’s Burgers (which is also awesome). They don’t give you recipes, just pictures with a basic synopsis of what they did to make the burger, which is nice, because it leaves them open for interpretation.
However, I’m vegan, so I’m going to start trying to veganize some of the specials (with some inspiration from The Bob’s Burger Experiment!).
So for the Pickle My Funny Bone burger, I fried up some pickles, which is super easy! I wish I had known how simple it was YEARS sooner, I would make these stupid things all the time. I decided on fried pickles, because they’re my boyfriends favorite, and he was my guinea pig.
It’s just a basic bun, with a pinto bean burger. I went with pinto because it’s the only thing I had in the house, and it’s really easy to pair them with pretty much anything. But mostly because it was what I had and I’m cheap and lazy.
I topped it with the fried pickles, thin sliced sweet onion, arugula/spinach mix, and some horseradish sriracha mayo that I made (literally just horseradish/sriracha/and vegenaise).
It was so good. So, so, soso good. The only thing I’d change for next time, is I’d make enough for second burgers (thirds?) yummmm
