The Luther Burger

This is of course, the famous, internet frenzy causing Luther Burger. The Luther part comes from Luther Vandross, as It’s supposedly his favorite way to prepare a hamburger.

It didn’t take very long for the internet to turn this into a famous dish. However, there is a good reason for this. This hamburger is a play on the sweet and salty, and it works spectacularly.

Also, this is more of a set of instructions on how to assemble The Luther then a recipe.

To start were going to need:

Mini hamburgers


Caramelized onions

Fried eggs

Glazed Doughnuts

Cut the donuts in half and place the bottoms on a long dish, then put 1 mini hamburger on top of each doughnut bottom.

Next, top your mini burgers with the caramelized onions.

Now, place your fried egg on top of the caramelized onions.

Were almost there, now place a few pieces of bacon on top..

Aha! now the only thing left to do is to top with the other half of the doughnuts.

Finished now. Enjoy..

Some notes:

  • I chose to use mini hamburgers, because the doughnuts were on the small side.
  • Also the doughnuts I chose left a strange “lardy” mouth feel. I would suggest that if you are going to do this, use high quality glazed doughnuts.
  • I need to work on my egg-frying skills, I fried six eggs and all six broke. talk about annoying!
