What to Know
They've come quite the delectable distance over the decades.
Back in the day you might have requested a squirt of mustard, or a slice of cheddar, if you were feeling especially wacky. Then came caramelized onions, and garlic aioli, and applewood smoked bacon, and even peanut butter and jelly, and a host of haute additions.
But it is October, which means Oktobefest foodstuffs are captivating cuisine seekers, even those who are hankering for a burger.
Good news for the "why not both?" crowd: Slater's 50/50 has a hearty treat with seriously savory overtones of the most seasonal assortment. It's the Schnitzel Burger which is, yes, both schnitzel and a hot dog + bun.
No worries if you're worried that the locally based boutique burger chain won't include a breaded pork chop in this hearty beauty: It's part of the whole shebang, as is a "bacon-infused hot dog slathered with Guinness mustard sauce and Swiss cheese."
There are greens, by the way, in the flavorful form of a "watercress mix." And the bun has Oktoberfest cred to spare: It's pretzel.
This is only happening through October, as you can guess, so you'll want to locate your nearest Slater's 50/50 for this appetizingly Alpine eat.
You don't have to wear a dirndl to devour it, but an Oktoberfest outfit might enhance the entire experience of eating a hot dog, and a breaded pork chop, all in a single bite.
