Burgers are great. Sometimes restaurants offer burger options that are plain (or weird). This is a friendly reminder that menus are flexible and most kitchens have the requisite egg and frying pan. For an extra buck or two, you can usually add something that will make a boring burger into a delicious one.

For the completely inept, here's the line:

Waiter: "And for you?"

You: "I'll take your 'bacon lover's burger.' Is it possible to get a fried egg on the burger?"

Waiter: "No problem. It'll be an extra dollar, but our kitchen can whip that up for you. How do you like your burger?"

Now, enjoy your raised cholesterol.
