Years ago, when I lived in San Francisco, I used to visit a burger joint called Hamburger Mary’s. They served their burgers on slices of bread instead of buns, which honestly made them easier to bite into and eat. The reason it worked is because they used nice thick slices of bread. So, for this burger recipe I decided to do the same thing, but fry the bread in a skillet to give it even more flavor and some great crunch. Make sure you get nice thick-sliced bread so that it holds together nicely.
