A slugburger (originally Weeksburger) is a traditional Southern food found in the area of Northeast Mississippi, particularly Corinth, New Albany, Booneville, Iuka, Tishomingo, Burnsville, West

A slugburger with onion rings

Tennessee, and north Alabama, particularly Decatur, Hartselle, Athens, Moulton, and Cullman. Consisting of a patty made from a mixture of beef or pork and an inexpensive extender such as soybeans, it is deep fried in oil. It is typically served on a bun with mustard, pickles, onion, and in some places with a side of French fries or onion rings.

John Weeks brought his hamburger recipe from Chicago to Corinth in 1917. Weeks had his hamburger meat ground to specification by local butchers, which included potato flakes and flour. These small hamburgers were originally called Weeksburgers. Sometime before 1950, soy grits replaced the potato and flour and has remained the primary extender. According to town legend the term “slugburger” comes from the slang term for a metal disk the size of a nickel that would work in vending machines.

At one time, five of the Weeks brothers were selling Weeksburgers in the south end of Corinth. They were John, Dave, Cord, Bill, and Fate Weeks. Fate, the youngest brother, also had a dozen different hamburger stands that he ran. He started working for his oldest brother John in 1919. In 1947, he purchased an old trolley car for $100 and converted it into a cafe. During his career, Fate Weeks converted four trolley cars into hamburger joints. His last trolly was located in Booneville Mississippi. As of the fall of 2016, his son, Willie Weeks, was still selling Weeksburgers from a portable building cafe in Booneville.

Each year the citizens of Corinth as well as those who travel from miles around descend on the town to pay tribute to this local culinary specialty at the annual Slugburger Festival. The festival is held in downtown Corinth for three weekend evenings during July and run by Main Street Corinth. There is entertainment at Train Depot and a carnival by Trailhead Park plus the World Slugburger Eating Championship.

TripAdvisor.com considers the festival one of the “wackiest” Summer events along with The Great Texas Mosquito Festival, Michigan’s Humongous Fungus festival and the Hollerin’ Contest. As a part of the entertainment, the festival holds a singing contest, Slug Idol, featuring contestants from surrounding counties in Tennessee and Mississippi.

The Slugburger Festival was started in 1988. In 2012, the first World Slugburger Eating Championship was held at the Festival, and the winners have come exclusively from Northern California, as professional Major League Eating eaters have dominated. Matt Stonie from San Jose, California won the first three, the last of which in 2014 he set the world record with 43 slugburgers eaten in 10 minutes, beating out Joey Chestnut in the field of 11. In 2015, Chestnut made amends just days after the eight-time Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest was defeated there by Stonie, who did not compete in Mississippi, by taking Stonie’s crown in slugburgers with 33 eaten. He repeated the feat with 41 in 2016, after he had reclaimed the Nathan’s title days earlier.

Green Chile Bison Burger
Take a trip to the Southwest with this juicy green-chile cheeseburger made with rich-tasting ground bison.

Serve with a sliced tomato salad………………………..

Chopping steak instead of using ground beef to make these healthy burgers gives them a more toothsome texture. Come summer, give this a cooler spin by tossing the raw fennel with 2 tablespoons vinegar and 1 tablespoon oil to serve alongside……………….

Jalapeño Popper Burgers

Cold Water works………………..

To ensure more of the meat winds up on your grill than stuck to your hands into cold water before molding your meat. Heat from your hands can make the ground beef stickier and more difficult to shape into patties.

Chicken Burger w/ Baked Fries

Today’s Menu: Chicken Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, heated up some Kroger Diced Ham, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hash Browns in a bowl and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Started off a cold morning at 27 degrees. Nice day out, 48 degrees and sunny. Not a lot going on today. Just did a few things around the house. I did help Mom dig out the Christmas Decorations from the closets and shed. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Ground Chicken Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

I purchased a package of Ground Chicken from Meijer my last visit there. To make the Burger I’ll need; the Ground Chicken (1 lb. package), Ground Cumin, Paprika, Garlic Powder, Dried Oregano, McCormick’s Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and Meijer Italian Style Bread Crumbs. For toppings I’m using Kraft Reduced Fat Mayo w/Olive Oil, Heinz 57 Sauce, Hoffman’s Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Butter Leaf Lettuce and served on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Bun.

 

 

To prepare them, in a large bowl, combine Chicken, Ground Cumin, Paprika, Garlic Powder, Dried Oregano, Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and Italian Style Bread Crumbs. The Seasonings amount are to taste and 2 tablespoons of the Italian Style Bread Crumbs. Make a little depression with your thumb in the center of each burger so they cook evenly. Divide the mixture into 4 patties.

 

 

In a Cast Iron Skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Add burger patties and cook, flipping once, until golden and a thermometer inserted into the center registers 165°, 8 to 10 minutes. Top with cheddar and cook until just started melting, 2 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer patties to a plate. Serve on the Buns and top with Mayo, Heinz 57 Sauce, and Lettuce. The Ground Chicken Burger is juicy, moist, and flavorful! I’ll have to start having a lot more often!

 

 

 

 

To go with the Chicken Burger I prepared Ore Ida Golden Crinkle Cut French Fries. Like all the Ore Ida Products, they are easy to prepare and delicious. I just baked them for 19 minutes and done! Served them with a side of Heinz 57 Sauce. For Dessert later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Sprite Zero to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Ground Chicken
Ground chicken is a healthy start for any meal since one serving (100 grams, or about 3 ounces) meets one’s protein needs for a nutritious meal – plus it’s lower in calories and fat than many meat sources. Lean ground chicken is high in protein and offers less saturated fat than ground beef.

Healthy Bison Recipes
Find healthy, delicious bison recipes, from the food and nutrition experts at EatingWell.

Buffalo Vegetable Soup
This meat and vegetable soup is full of potatoes, corn and zucchini and has a hint of spice from a poblano pepper. Using ground bison means more protein and fewer calories although you can use ground beef if you prefer…………………..

Grilled Bison-Mushroom Burgers
Adding smoky, umami-packed ground mushrooms to grilled burgers builds flavor and keeps things juicy while bumping up the patty size. This burger is super-tasty made with ground beef too, but we love bison as a sustainable alternative packed with rich flavor. Look for it in the meat section of well-stocked supermarkets……………

Buffalo and Black Bean Chili
In this healthy buffalo and black bean chili recipe, the buffalo is cooked with sweet red bell peppers and spiced with two types of chili powder, cocoa powder and espresso powder, making this chili mouthwatering and memorable. Ground buffalo, also known as ground bison, is a healthy alternative to ground beef because it’s naturally lower in fat and has a rich, delectable flavor. After all the ingredients are added to the pot, we like to slowly simmer our chili for close to an hour to develop the best flavor, but if you’re in a hurry, reduce the liquid by half and simmer for 20 to 25 minutes………………………

For Breakfast this morning I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Cold morning out, 24 degrees! For the day had a high of 47 degrees and mostly sunny. After I had my Tea I went to Kroger for a couple of items for Mom. Raked some leaves and then used the leaf blower and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. Not a lot to do today so I settled back and watched some College Football. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Chicken Burger w/ Baked Fries.
