The perfect burger is a beautiful thing. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder of course. Everyone has an opinion, usually a strong opinion about the iconic American ethnic food – the hamburger. Like pizza, there are distinct burger styles, each with passionate fans here in Jersey.

For some, the best burgers are thin, griddle-steamed “sliders,” like the spectacular burgers served at Linden’s White Rose System or Clark White Diamond, with sliced onions and a pickle nestled in a soft bun.

Sliders hold a special place in my culinary heart. White Castle was my favorite fast food burger growing up. I’ve rediscovered that taste in the fresh beef sliders at the independent Jersey slider spots. I order single cheeseburgers with onions and a pickle.
