Watch the Bob’s Burgers Burger Book Music Video
When Bob Belcher first opened and then first reopened and later first re-re-reopened his little burger joint, Bob’s Burgers, his ambition was unequivocal. It can’t be easy running a business when your staff is your kids — precocious Louise, awkward Gene and buttocks-loving Tina — and you have to compete with Jimmy Pesto’s Pizzeria across the street. What’s a passionate burger auteur to do?
When you’re as animated (literally) as Bob, you invent burgers with pun names as far-out as some of the concepts: The Cauliflower’s Cumin from Inside the House Burger (comes with cauliflower and cumin); It’s Fun to Eat at the rYeMCA (comes on rye with mustard, cheese and avocado); the Beets of Burden Burger (served with too many beets); and so on. Some of these burgers probably work better in non-cartoon life than others. One dedicated fan of the show created a blog where he took these burger names scrawled on a blackboard in the background of the show and created bona fide recipes. The 71 greatest triumphs of his experiment have been recipe-tested by legit chefs and compiled in a new cookbook called The Bob’s Burgers Burger Book: Real Recipes for Joke Burgers.
