Exactly a week ago, I found myself drawn back to the remarkable culinary monstrosity that is a repeat favorite and absolutely a classic of the Roediger House dinner table: peanut butter bacon burgers. Perhaps the poisonous combination of the essential cuts of beef I need being on sale, and a passing reference to them when Kristen and Mookie visited last weekend, is to be blamed for this indulgence that was denied to those who love them so...
I do like to offer a review of some key points about the Roediger House peanut butter bacon burgers, which this time comes on the occasion of their 31st appearance:
- Inspired by Yo Mama's in the French Quarter of New Orleans
- First Made: Meal No. 180
- Last Made: Meal No. 2414
- Fresh Home-Ground Beef, typically from boneless beef short ribs and top sirloin
- Homemade Peanut Butter
- Homemade Classic Burger Sauce (recipe below)

4 T mayonnaise
2 T ketchup
1 tsp sweet pickle relish
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp white vinegar

Whisk all ingredients together in a small bowl.
