Next question: is it a crime to put ketchup on a hot dog verses mustard ? Some say yes. I have never acquired the taste for mustard.
Not a crime at all. My family has always put ketchup and mustard together on them. Now, in Chicago, it might be a crime...lol There are very specific requirements for regional dogs.

The Gaucho burger is a good bet. It's just topped with chimichurri and Gouda cheese. The Gudda has a hint of nut, and the chimichurri counts as eating a salad.

Yes.
Remember what Clint Eastwood taught us in Dirty Harry.

The Oktoberfest Burger seems a little involved but it is well worth it.
Pretzel roll.
Sweat down the onions with sea salt and a big thing of garlic. At the last minute scoop a big thing of mustard on to it. You don't want the sugars in the mustard to caramelize. So you have to pay attention and you have to keep stirring.
Make the burger.
Then put a nice slice smoked ham in there. Hopefully next to the onion/ mustard.
Now finding the cheese just has been a complete Bugaboo for me. Red Robin uses a muenster cheese but I think that that's only because it sounds like it's German. We can do better.
Swiss is great, and it works well with the ham but does nothing for the burger. So I guess there is no good answer but I will go back to my experiments in the kitchen.

Mrs Duke mixes chopped spinach, chopped onions, feta cheese, and a variety of herbs/spices into her raw hamburger meat, then makes patties to be cooked. As long as they are not overcooked, as in medium or less, they are great.

From a restaurant, I like one with the works. But at home, I'll just stick with ketchup only. Have ever since I was a kid. to quote lynyrd skynyrd, I'm a simple kind of man.
