St Louis has some great food choices, and it was hard to narrow it down, but once I found the Slinger Sandwich, the Rams inspired burger was as good a made. This version has seared beef patty but you can do it with just about any meat.
The "slinger" comes from the toppings...I start with a fresh cooked, homemade hashbrowns, some melted cheddar cheese, a good helping of pipping hot chili, and finally a fried egg. It's burger & breakfast monster, and it's delish!
