Peanut Butter Burger

By Melvin Browne


So I was on a trip to New Orleans last week. While staying the French Quarter, I somehow wandered into a restaurant bar on Bourbon Street and I still can’t remember the name of (it was that kind of week lol). A friend ordered some food and of course I just ordered another drink. So while finishing up my Hand Grenade, my friend asks me if I want some of his Peanut Butter Burger. Immediately the New York in me said “Hell No!” But then I became a lil curious and since I was in New Orleans, I decided to go ahead a have a bite. It was one of the most delicious weird combinations ever! I still can’t get the burger out of my mind even till this very hour. So I thought I share the recipe with you, plus I found some great reviews on a restaurant in Harlem that serves the Peanut Butter Burger as one of their Signature Burgers. I’m headed there tonight, so I hope you guys try it at home or head up to Harlem with me!
