Eater does a Burger Week, too!


And gets into it good. They aren't one of my regular reads (which is why I am two days late on this one) but Eater (basically a bunch of food blogs based around various cities in the US) has decided to jump the gun on National Burger Month, and do something called Eater Burger Week.

And as you might expect from such a large and mainstream publication, they don't shy away from what you might call things excessive. With one of their first offerings being The Ron Swanson Turkey Burger.

Backstory: There's a TV show called Parks and Recreation. It has a character named Ron Swanson who likes meat. He mentions in passing the idea of a fried turkey leg inside a grilled hamburger. Someone from Texas, who just happens to write for Eater, Paula Forbes, decides to make one, and documents the process.

Heck, I betcha dollars to doughnuts they out do Epic Meal Time before the week is done.
