Just because the snow has thawed and we are slowly, and finally, becoming wrapped in spring’s gentle embrace doesn’t mean you must stop eating hearty meals. A wise man once said, “there’s no bad time for mashed potatoes.” On that note, here is a burger type thing that uses Thanksgiving’s favorite side dish as a bun.
Philadelphia’s PYT are no stranger to this blog and now they’ve outdone even themselves. Introducing the “Hungry Man” Mashed Potato Bun Burger. This sandwich does indeed use mashed potatoes as a bun, however these taters are deep-fried (to your health!) Also, it’s not a traditional burger per say, opting instead to use Salisbury steak as the protein. Oh yeah, in case you were wondering if you could eat it with your hands, the whole thing is covered in peas, carrots and gravy. It’s the 1970s in sandwich form.
