Husk restaurant’s bacon-infused cheeseburger has landed on Forbes Travel Guide’s “10 Must-Eat Burgers.”
The list celebrates May as National Burger Month and the unofficial start of the grilling season on Memorial Day. For the Husk burger, editors noted the use of Benton’s hickory smoked bacon in its two, 100-percent chuck patties that are seared on a griddle to develop a crust.
“Shaved white onions are steamed on top of one patty and beneath two slices of American cheese, allowing the flavor to seep into the burger while retaining a little crunch,” the description reads in tantalizing detail.
Another slice of cheese, bread-and-butter pickles and Chef Sean Brock’s special sauce, all atop a housemade buttermilk and sesame seed bun, completes the burger.
Forbes adds, “Keeping with his farm-to-table philosophy, Brock tops the burger with local lettuce and tomatoes only when they’re in season.”
