The Spicy Cincinnati Style Coney Island Meatbuster by Sam

Sam has entered a burger contest at Red Robin (if you wanna enter, you can go HERE). We made his entry burger this week and thought I'd post our process here. After a great meeting of the burger minds (Sam, Josh and I), we came up with the Spicy Cincinnati Style Coney Island Meatbuster...a name we labored over quite a bit. The winning entry gets their burger on the Red Robin menu for a year and a free family vacation. Let's get into it...

We started with the Cincinnati style chili (which is really a Greek pasta sauce that was sold to here in America as 'chili' and it's beautiful). It's a simple mixture of tomato paste, water, ground beef, chili powder, cayenne pepper, cocoa, cinnamon, allspice and garlic. You can read more about that HERE.



Then of course, the burgers...





Next, we cooked up some sweet Nathan's kosher dogs and split them in half...



Add dog to burger...



Top with chili, shredded cheese and chopped white onion...





Take a moment to find your center...



And dig in!





Sooooooo good. And maybe your next few meals should be salads.

Also, Stella tried her hand at making up a dish of her own. The recipe of which should be self explanatory. For dessert, may we suggest, the whipped cream sandwich?
