“Autumn” Burger: Bacon, Brie, Pumpkin Spread


Gosh, this burger was perfection.

A few friends decided to take me out to dinner for the first night of my San Francisco trip.  They picked this really awesome artisan burger place called Roam.

I ordered the “Autumn burger” which, as you can see above, featured applewood-smoked bacon and melty brie cheese.  It also had arugula, carmelized onions, and this really subtle pumpkin spread.

I don’t know if I would have thought in a million years to put pumpkin spread on a burger, but wow–  it worked.

Their menu has a lot of other tasty-sounding options as well, for example the “French and Fries” burger, which features truffle parmesan friees, gruyere cheese, and avocado.

Next time I’m in the Bay Area I’ll definitely go back!


Back in Boston, where it actually feels like fall, I have seasonal recipes on the brain.

Here’s a great list of tasty-looking Brie recipes from the Huffington Post.

Top choices:

*Cranberry, Butternut, and Brussels Sprout Brie Skillet Nachos

*Strawberry Bruschetta Grilled Cheese

*Buckwheat Crepes with Brie and Honey Sauteed Swiss Chard

Happy Cooking!
