Burger King Whopper - CopyCat

Adapted from Todd Wilbur, Top Secret Recipes

In 1954, in Miami, Florida, James McLamore and David Edgerton built the first Burger King Restaurant (not kosher). By 1991 more than 6,400 Burger King outlets could be found in forty countries and all fifty states. That gives this burger giant more that $6 billion is sales each year, making it the countrys second -largest fast-food chain. McDonalds is the largest (and there are kosher McDonalds in Argentina and Israel).

For many, the favorite item on the menu is a flame-broiled hamburger conceived by the partners on a business trip from Orlando to Miami in 1957. Dubbed the "Whopper," this sandwich is overwhelmingly popular; figures show that Burger King sells more that 540 million annually, or nearly 2 million each day. And with more than 1,023 different combinations of the eight-or-so ingredients, including a vegetarian version,* you really can "have it your way."  This was an easy one to convert - enjoy!
