Hamburger heaven at home!

11aOutside, it was an overcast December day with clouds that were leaking from time to time. Inside was a different story, though, as I was preparing a most bodacious hamburger and French fry type of lunch!

When making a hamburger at home, the ingredients you use will go pretty far in determining how tasty the finished burger may be. In my case, I like to purchase preformed patties made from 81/19% lean to fat and premium buns like Pepperidge Farm’s Golden Potato Hamburger Buns! Those two guys, along with a couple of condiments and a veggie or two add up to a good eating experience! Not that for a real tomato taste, I use sliced cherry tomatoes during the winter months!

For the French fries I often raid the freezer for seasoned frozen fries that get popped into the convection oven for about twenty minutes at 390 degrees. They come out hot and crisp! Just the way I like them!

Hamburger hell, for kids working fast food joints!

One San Francisco-based company , Momentum Machines, says it has already built a working hamburger-making robot that can do the job of up to three kitchen workers, grilling a beef patty, adding lettuce, tomatoes, pickles and onions and dropping it all on a bun. It can reportedly produce up to 400 hamburgers per hour. “Our device isn’t meant to make employees more efficient,” co-founder Alexandros Vardakostas has said. “It’s meant to completely obviate them.”

So, I guess when you’re faced with paying your employees $15 an hour, you might just be forced to innovate the problem away….
