The Fifth Taste

March 15, 2016 By Diana

Our latest chef collaboration burger is here! We are excited to announce it’s with none other than one of our favorite TV celebrity chefs, Alton Brown. All of us at Umami Burger have been super fans of Good Eats, Iron Chef America and Cutthroat Kitchen for a long time. So when it came time to brainstorming a new Artist Series Alton Brown was just a natural fit all around. It was a pleasure working with Alton and his team.

The Alton Burger itself is a tribute to a classic southern breakfast. It is made with a special beef patty, which includes Umami Burger’s signature beef blend mixed with bacon lardons. The burger is topped with cheddar cheese, miso-maple bacon, smashed cheesy tots (the secret it out!), a fried egg, fried sage, and a house-made coffee ketchup created by AB himself. What’s fun about the burger (besides every single ingredient in it) is when The Alton Burger is brought to the table, your server will plunge a knife right through the center of the egg yolk, so that it drips down mixing through all the layers. Stay within the breakfast theme and try the burger with The Samuel Adams Nitro Coffee Stout or The Ryes and Grind Cocktail.
