Well, Scandal fans, I’m sorry to disappoint, but Gettysburger does not exist. Before you get all sad, read on to see what I envision Gettysburger looking like AND make sure to tell me what YOU think it looks like in the comments!
Smoke and mirrors, like most of DC, thick-cut smoked bacon, BBQ sauce and a smoked cheddar? Or is it “all-American” because let’s be honest, actual Gettysburg is some of the most hallowed ground we have the in United States?
I decide to play it safe and landed with all-American. My idealistic burger is two all-beef patties with cheddar cheese, pickles, lettuce, ketchup and mustard on a sesame seed bun.
Just a straight up double cheeseburger, my foodie friends. Although I did opt to use my honey habanero pickles because they are delicious.
