The Food Lab: How to Make a Burger King-Style Whopper Fit for The King

The Burger King Whopper is as ‘Murican as it gets: grilled beef, American cheese (because everybody gets the cheese), tomato, onion, iceberg lettuce, and dill pickle, a dollop of mayo, a squirt of ketchup, and a sesame seed bun. Sounds like the ingredients of a great sandwich to me, so I decided to recreate it, upgrading the ingredients and the technique every step along the way.

Lots of pictures. The burger is “deconstructed,” analyzed then assembled at home in a manner to keep the essence of the original but improved upon. You can do the same using your own tastes to guide you.


Beautiful Burgers

Among the finest culinary inventions of all time. A thing of beauty. I am particularly pleased when my delicious delight is accompanied by crinkle-cut french fries. I am also one of the minority of connoisseurs who, at times, depending upon mood, dips the fries into mayonnaise before devouring them. Ketchup is used as is ranch dressing or BBQ sauce but mayo is the mainstay.

I vary my burger eating by applying differing toppings. Sometimes I opt for the cheeseburger   while in the past that was the only way I are my burger. Tastes change with time as did mine with burgers. Currently I go cheese-less around 75% of the time. Partially to cut down calories and also just to have a varied taste experience. No cheese allows more meat taste to slither onto my taste buds.

Okay… PIC TIME!!!

Food Humor


My well-honed fine-tuned humor “sense” is repulsive to the majority of blithering idiots infesting the USA. If you are a politically correct droid depart now. Off with you. Be gone… seek your safe place and clutch your brethren in the fear that folks such as I exist.

If you believe you have the proverbial stomach for repulsiveness continue and you may chortle along with the rest of the societal dregs who have fended off the indoctrination dispensed by the elite-class and corporate USA via their well-paid lackey filth.

You have been warned… click to continue at your own risk to your delicate psyche. I am near-broke so if you suffer mental trauma from viewing what is posted below I will laugh convulsively at any attempt to sue me for what I do not have nor ever will possess. There is only one advantage to being dirt-poor in the USA; freedom. Freedom from the financial worries that accompanies those who own enough money and/or possessions that others can sue them to grab the goodies.

Food Viewing

Hello. How are you doing? Getting enough to eat? I sure hope so. Being hungry sucks. A little hunger is okay as long as it is not a regular event. Here in the USA there is no excuse for hunger for many reasons. I have noticed that local charities have had to expand their efforts thanks to the ongoing class war. The greedy scum vile filth at the upper level of the socioeconomic hierarchy upped their class war around 1972 and those greedy scum have been grabbing an ever-growing percentage of the national wealth ever since.

Skim the wealth that the masses of common folks create via their efforts then use the elite-owned propaganda systems to encourage those masses to give more to local charities to assist the downtrodden. What a racket!!! Akin to having the condemned person dig their own grave before they are executed.

Casper’s Vittle Vending Folks

Being an outsider who has resided in Springfield a brief 5 years I review establishments without the bias that can occur when a firm is a large part of one’s life experiences.

Casper’s is “quaint,” in the manner I define the subjective-in-nature term but I have experienced quainter quaint in many other locales across the USA.

However, in regards to the general locale of the firm, the quaint applies and can be an attractor to some while being a negative aspect for others.

I have tried their fare several times during the period of my local residing in my shanty a few minutes drive from Casper’s. I give credit to the firm that parking has never been problematic with ample room to park.

There was always ample seating room. That may be true to my tendency to shun food firms during the rushes at typical vittles eating times.
