The Clock Stopper Burger

The Clock Stopper BurgerIt seems like every bar or restaurant out there has been adding gigantic burgers or crazy eating challenges to their menus lately, and you know what?

To give you some examples of what I’m talking about I took a trip down to the Wauwatosa Farmers Market on a recent … Continue Reading »

The Brunch Burganator

The Brunch BurganatorIn case you haven’t noticed, people from Milwaukee love cooking with beer. Back in April I held a contest to see who could make the best grilled cheese sandwich and the winner (from Milwaukee) used Schlitz and Pabst as part of his recipe. A couple weeks ago I wrote about the Napoleon Dynamite from Cafe Centraal; a pile of pancakes layered with bacon, two eggs and a Belgian beer cheese sauce. Most recently I stopped at Stonefly Brewery for … Continue Reading »
