Let me explain the origin of The Kackle Burger. So many towns have that one great place to grab lunch or dinner. It's locally owned. It's been around for decades. The food is consistently awesome. The waitstaff knows you - they gossip with you. The floors smell weird, but you don't care. You can get drunk in the middle of the day and play Keno if you feel like it. It's got... character. There was a place such as this in my town. My favorite thing I ever ordered was The Kackle Burger. It was a chicken cutlet with bacon and cheese served on lightly toasted French bread.
It's Easy to Make a Kackle Burger - and everyone will love you for it!
The Kackle Burger is a chicken cutlet sandwich and making chicken cutlets is one of the easiest things in the world to do. And the French bread? No problem. You can buy those freshly baked French bread loaves in the bakery section of your local grocery store. The ingredients are affordable, and the process is simple. Plus, I have a great video (above) that you can follow along with!
Prior to my favorite local restaurant tragically selling to new owners (who ultimately ran it into the ground), I would treat myself to a Kackle Burger from time to time. On some very rare occasions, in the dead of winter, I might change it up and order their French Onion Soup because it was insanely delicious. But mostly, I ordered the true love of my life: The Kackle Burger.
They did not use frozen chicken cutlets from a bag that came from a giant freezer. These were made in-house. Real chicken cutlets made in a restaurant kitchen and fried in hot oil. It was everything to me. I should mention my all-time favorite sandwich combo is chicken, bacon and cheese: a culinary trifecta in my opinion.
For this chicken cutlet sandwich The Toppings are all about you
You might consider this next statement controversial. I don't like mayonnaise. And I don't like iceberg lettuce. The Kackle Burger came with lettuce, tomato and mayo. I always skipped that. You CAN add these things to your particular sandwich, of course. I choose not to do that. The joy of chicken, bacon, cheese and good bread is enough for me. The original sandwich was made with Jack cheese, but cheddar or Swiss would work great too if you prefer that. It's pretty flexible - use the toppings you love!
I hope you give this one a try - it's really delicious! Also, if you don't need to make six sandwiches you can use the rest of the cutlets to make Crispy Chicken Parmesan!
