    Stodgy white bread? I draw a distinction with properly toasted sourdough or brioche buns.

    They all look pretty good. Although I have to say, I prefer my burgers on whole wheat buns rather than white …. white buns have no guts or flavor. I’m constantly amazed, in these days of so-called healthy food choices, how few eateries still don’t serve burgers in anything but stodgy white buns. The Alta, CA burger gets my vote. 🙂
