Mrs Obama gets a burger named after her

world Updated: Sep 27, 2009 19:36 IST

There is a new burger in town, made of turkey, and it has Michelle Obama's name on it. The "Michelle Melt" at Good Stuff Eatery was unveiled on Thursday by chef Spike Mendelsohn, a former contestant on Bravo television's Top Chef competition. He developed it in collaboration with White House chef Sam Kass, who previously cooked for the Obama family in Chicago.

What makes a turkey burger qualify as a "Michelle Melt?" Fresh, organic, locally grown ingredients that promote healthier eating, and the same herbs that are found in the White House garden started by Mrs Obama.

The recipe: free range turkey burger, caramelized onions, Swiss cheese, ruby red tomato, crisp lettuce, South Lawn herb garden mayonnaise, freshly baked wheat bun.

Mendelsohn plans to donate proceeds from the burger's sale to an organization that distributes food to homeless people.
