The Easter Egg Burger
"SexyBurger has died. SexyBurger has Risen. Sexyburger will come again."
This burger was all about resurrection. Easter is a time that signals rebirth and that is exactly what the SexyBurger Six had planned for its BurgerMinions back in April. And now it’s Labor Day, a holiday that signals death, futility, and the coming of nut-numbing weather. The whole summer is flashing before my eyes; a season of adventure, relaxation, and sweet, sweet, backyard meat. Does time really fly when you’re having fun or are we just insane for living in New England with our 90 days of sunshine? Townies like The Revolutionary Man and The Kid may never know, but perhaps future turncoats like X-Mark and The Spot will tell us when they finally get out. Regardless of our disappearing act, please know that we are living the Way of the Burger in everything we do. The BurgerMinions, our mission, and our blog are always in our thoughts and we’ve got a lot of exciting ideas coming up. Now onto the SexyBurger!!!
Procrastination is something that afflicts all of us. I may have put off writing a burger post for 4 months but at least I haven’t kept the whole world waiting over 2000 years for my second coming. So we're in good company.
It was difficult to create another Easter burger, knowing it couldn't top the immense success of the Easter Bunny Burger of the previous year. That remains one of those special SexyBurgers that we tend to use when we want impress some SexyBurger virgins with our project. This year we just wanted to gather friends and family to experience something new with half the effort. And thus, the Easter Egg Burger came into creation.
As we all know, the Easter Egg was a miraculous event, conceived through divine intervention in the womb of the lowly rabbit. We asked our guest to partake in the holy sacrament of coloring eggs while we prepared the main course for their enjoyment.
I have to apologize in advance because I can’t remember the small details that make our burgers so Sexy, but rather only the main ingredients. The buns and cheese were chosen because of their Italian origin. Anyone who has ever met a guido, guidette, or goombah immediately recognizes the Christian adornments around their neck which denotes their devotion to Him. The beef was Juicy Lucy’d with egg salad as a recognition of that which brings life (some chose to put it on the burger as you see in the first picture). Finally, it was topped by pastel chocolates to include one of the oldest Easter traditions, the eating of candy. The color and creaminess brought a surprising burst of flavor that symbolized the new colors we saw popping up in our gardens and coincidentally to the polos worn by frat boys and yacht owners across this great nation).
And there it is. A new burger. A new burger post. Not our best in either accounts but it is done. There’s more I want to say but I don’t want to put this off any longer and there are burgers to be made. Cheesus Bless You, and Cheesus Bless the Burgers!
See ya next Burger!
