Breakfast Burger w/ Sweet Potato Waffle Buns+Apple & Cheese Bun Burger

29 Aug

Yes, another competition. A burger one. But this girl doesn’t eat real burgers much, so in order to participate, I made a couple of unique “burgers”.

No burger was actually involved. Haha, I’m not sure if that totally defeats the burger name, but I seem to think not.

One was a breakfast burger, made with waffle buns and egg. And guess what came with the breakfast burger? French toast fries!. The other burger used apple “grilled cheese” buns with a chicken burger. Have you ever had apples and cheese together? It’s a great mix!

Very interesting combinations, and very delicious outcomes. If you want a healthy yet fun spin to the typical burger, these are surely ones to try!

    Apples and cheese sounds like such an odd combination. I’ve heard tons of people say it’s delicious, but I’m not so sure I’d like it. I’ll have to give this a try!
