Alton Brown, the famed host of the long-running Food Network show Good Eats (along with a slew of other remarkable accomplishments), has officially teamed up with Umami Burger to unveil their newest addition to their Artist Series: the Alton Burger.
Umami Burger, while mostly located in California, is constantly growing and adding more and more locations, with a handful of them popping up on the East Coast. For those who don't know, Umami is the fabled long-lost flavor that tends to live outside of the realm of traditional tastes like sour, sweet, salty and bitter. It makes sense that Alton Brown would team up with a delicious and inventive company to make his newest creation.
The Alton Burger will be paying tribute to traditional southern breakfasts by combining the best things from them and rolling them up into one sandwich. The burger features a special beef patty made with bacon lardons mixed in, some cheddar cheese, miso-maple bacon, smashes cheesy tots, fried egg, fried sage, and perhaps the most interesting ingredient of all...house-made coffee ketchup.
Brown will be another celebrity added to the list of big names that have previously made burgers for Umami's Artist Series, including Mindy Kaling, Slash, Andy Samberg, The Black Keys, and more. For every Alton Burger purchased, Umami Burger will donate $1 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
