Maryland's best burger, according to the Food Network
The Food Network Magazine has picked the 50 ultimate burgers in the country, and Maryland has one of them.
I was tired of guessing how national publications come up with these awards, so I asked the PR person for the network. Here's what she told me:
Elizabeth – along with Food Network Magazine’s editors and staff, a food critic from Maryland assisted in the selection. They’re listed at the end of the article. From Maryland it was Suzanne Loudermilk, Baltimore Magazine. The burgers were narrowed down to five nominations and each burger was tasted. The Heart Attack on a Plate was chosen as the one burger you can’t miss.
Maybe Suzanne will weigh in and tell us what the other finalists were. ...
Here's Maryland's entry in its entirety:
Heart Attack on a Plate
MOTHER'S FEDERAL HILL GRILLE
Cardiologists may disagree, but burger lovers think this 8-ounce beef patty -- stuffed with cheddar, dipped in an ale batter and deep-fried -- is worth the obvious health risks. On the upside, there are a few veggies involved. The patty is topped with lettuce, tomato and onions, along with chipotle mayo.
