The Mike Green Burger



So it turns out that Strasburgers aren't the only local sports-inspired hamburgers. Good Stuff Eatery's Spike Mendelsohn has a cookbook out, called "The Good Stuff Cookbook," and containing a recipe for a Mike Green-inspired burger. (Both men are Canadian.)

The key ingredients seem to be portobellos, chunky avocado topping and two pickles per burger, or about a dozen less than a typical Strasburger.

Also, the cookbook refers to Green's team as the Capitols, which I assume is close enough. See Green's full creation below.

I hear it's so good that it disappears off the plate faster than Mike Green disappears in the playoffs.

The only problem with the burger is you choke on it in the spring.

I'm completely uninterested in this hamburger recipe.

Green did a video segment at Good Stuff a few years ago that was a burger building contest against, I think, Brashear and one other player. I am pretty sure this is the burger combo he won with,

I remember that feature. For his hamburger bun Green accidentally used two bottom pieces. Fehr called him out on it, wondering how he could have won the competition, it was pretty funny.

How about a, Mike Green Does Something In The Playoffs Burger?

No doubt, like Spike's restaurant, the Mike Green burger: has swiss cheese, is overpriced, and falls apart in the clutch.

The Green Burger is better than the Semin burger: All Sauce and no meat

The Fleishman burger: 1/4 inch slab of grilled tofu on a plain bun, sliced by his mommy.
