Gourmet Chef Wannabe 2018 — photo 16 of 34: Inspired by the seasonal, limited edition Johnny Appleseed burger at Bo & Vine Burger Bar in nearby Salem, Oregon, I made my own version at home. On a buttered and toasted whole wheat bun spread with mayo I stacked a juicy ground beef patty, a slice of butter-sautéed Granny Smith apple as well as a raw slice, both topped with cinnamon, cinnamon whiskey caramelized onion sautéed in butter, smoked bacon, Israeli Pastures of Eden sheep’s milk feta cheese from Trader Joe’s, (instead of B&V’s blue cheese), and spring mix greens. This unusual combination of ingredients was surprisingly good, although a little bland for my tastes — I should have put sriracha in the mayo. September 2018. Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Olympus 12-100mm f/4.0 zoom lens.
