Goober Burger


I'm sure many of you have never heard of a Goober Burger. Yes, that's peanut butter melted over the hamburger... doesn't it look tasty? I'm sure you're thinking to yourself that I'm insane. If you're familiar with the Sedalia, Missouri landmark called The Wheel-In, then you aren't one bit surprised by this Goober Burger, you've probably enjoyed one yourself! The Wheel-Inn was a popular drive-inn build in the 1940's. It has recently been moved due to highway expansion. The new restaurant isn't a drive-inn, but it still features this popular burger. I grew up enjoying these burgers, so it's nothing out of the ordinary for me. I find nothing appalling about peanut butter on a hamburger simply because I have eaten it, and man it's GOOD! You must at least try this once before passing judgement... I think you will be pleasantly surprised. This just goes to show peanut butter makes everything better!

Before shutting your computer down, everyone needs to head over to Tasty Treasures for its very first giveaway! If you've never been to this blog you're in for a treat. Donna's absolutely hilarious with great recipes to boot :)

Ok, I can judge...I've had one. I gotta say, it must be an acquired taste! I know some people who LOVE them...I'm just not in that group! It's one of those "whatever floats your boat" things! LOL...I haven't heard anyone mention Goobers in a LOOOONG time! Memories!

PB on chcken is excellent. I first tried it at Jungle Jim's in Orlando, Fl and it was delish! I'll have to try it on a burger : )

I grew up 35 miles south of there, so yeah, I've had one or two of Wheel Inn's Goober Burgers. I went through a phase for a while during my teen years when I put peanut butter not only on burgers, but on hot dogs, bologna sandwiches, etc. Doesn't sound very appetizing now, though. :)

The wife and I loved them. Saw them on television once and had the idea on a whim last night.
