This post is part of #BurgerMonth being hosted by Kita Roberts AKA #GirlCarnivore, however this belt bustin’ burger is 100% my creation!
Ah Rochester, NY… home of the Garbage Plate. The Garbage plate has been part of Rochester’s history for decades, actually 100 years. Nick Tahou’s is home of the Original Garbage Plate since 1918! I haven’t ever acquired the taste for it, but… my husband and son both LOVE a good Garbage Plate! A mishmash of all your neighborhood burger joint favorites piled high together on one plate! Burgers or hotdogs, mac salad and or baked beans, fries/home fries and hot chili sauce. The hot chili sauce is a combination of spices and ground beef. Of course, Nick Tahou’s chili sauce is a secret recipe. After testing several recipes, I was lucky enough that my sister-in-law let me try hers. It was the winner! Thank you, Mary! Now, her recipe does take a little time, but it is worth it! Being a Rochesterarian, I thought that this would make a great totally outrageous burger for the #BurgerMonth event hosted by #Girlcarnivore! There are many elements to this recipe, but it will be fun! As an added bonus, there is a great give-away you can enter with loads of fantastic sponsors! Links and info below! And I am sure any Garbage Plate fan will be happy, who knows… you might become a Garbage Plate fan, too! It was so good that my son asked me to make it again for his birthday meal!!
- 1 cup cooked elbow macaroni
- ½ tbsp. minced onion
- 1/ tbsp. grated carrot
- ½ tsp. celery salt
- ½ tbs. chopped celery
- Salt and pepper
- ¼ cup mayo
Mix together in a bowl. Place in refrigerator for a few hours or overnight for flavors to come out.
** Hot Sauce: (recipe makes a lot, but it does freeze well)
- 2 Tbsp. Chili Powder
- ½ tsp. cayenne (red)pepper
- ¼ tsp black pepper
- 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
- ½ tsp. garlic powder
- 1 tsp. sugar
- 3 tsp. Worcestershire Sauce
- ¼ bottle Red Hot Sauce
- 1 ½ cups chopped onion
- 1lb finely chopped ground beef
- 3 oz. olive oil
Brown ground beef in the olive oil, breaking apart well as it cooks. Boil the onion in a small amount of water (I used about 1 cup) until softened. Combine the onion broth, ground beef and remainder of the ingredients. Simmer for 4 hours, adding water as needed. For a spicier sauce add more of the Red Hot Sauce and/or cinnamon.
- 1 lb. ground beef formed into 4 patties seasoned with salt and pepper, cooked to your liking (grill, fry, griddle)
- 1/2 cup macaroni salad, I like to use an ice cream scoop
- 1/2 cup Hot sauce
- 1/2 cup frozen (or homemade) French fries, cooked (The crinkle cut ones are best)
- 8 slices American cheese
- 2 hard rolls, open and use a little mayo on each half, grill till lightly browned
Extra toppings if desired:
- Chopped onions
Of course extra fries along the side!
Place the bottom half of the hard roll on a plate. Top with a burger patty, 2 slices of cheese (I melted my cheese on top when I cooked the patties).
Top with some fries…
and a slather of the hot sauce.
Time for another patty and cheese.
Oh! Now a scoop of the mac salad.
Don’t forget MORE hot sauce.
Add those additional toppings!
Time to top it off with the top of the roll!
Don’t forget the wet wipes and extra napkins, you’re gonna need them!
Enjoy whether you chose to pick it up and take a big bit of it…
or dive in with a knife and fork!
