Hippity-Hop to Slater's 50/50 for their 'Roo Burger, Made of--You Guessed It!--Kangaroo Meat
Time was when Michelle Woo would let all of us know about Slater's 50/50's latest insane burger, but since she's no longer with us :-(, I guess I got the honors. And this one just might be the most insane burger yet: a patty made with 50 percent bacon (of course)...and 50 percent kangaroo meat.
Bust out all your Crocodile Dundee lines here, por favor.
It's Slater's Burger of the Month for September, and their press release describes it as "super lean and slightly controversial." Ya think?
We've yet to try it, or kangaroo meat, but it sure sounds tasty--and the accompaniments (melted brie, thick-cut bacon, huckleberry ketchup, crushed macadamia ricotta, baby greens, radish slices, all on a honey wheat bun) already makes it a must-eat. Hip-hop hooray!
