When I first saw these long boy burgers
over at Sunshine and Bones I knew I would
love them. That's because I've used the
techinque before. Do you remember my
Korean Open-Face burgers? Here's a pic
to remind you...
In my Korean Open-Face burgers I mix the
flavors of bulgogi (soy sauce, sesame oil,
garlic, green onions, etc) in the hamburger
meat and spread the raw meat mixture on
buns, sprinkle with sesame seeds and bake
for about 20 minutes or until the meat
reaches a temperature of 165 degrees.
The Long Boy Burgers are made the same way
but are a little more like meatloaf. The best
part is you can top them with anything. I
opted for barbeque sauce on some and Thai
sweet chili sauce on the others. They both
where terrific! So flavorful! You can even
make them more like meatloaf and top them
with a mixture of ketchup, dry mustard and
brown sugar. Then you get to top that with
ooey gooey melty cheese. Oh my...doesn't
that just make you start to drool?

spreading meat to edges of rolls. Brush top of
meat mixture with topping of your choice and

Sandwiches like this are a great weeknight
meal! They are so fast to throw together and
would be great for the upcoming football season.
Long boy burgers with some chips, dips and some
dessert....that sounds like a game night I'd
like to attend!
