How do you eat your burger?

I wrote a while back about Anne eating pizza with a fork and knife then we had burgers for lunch the other day. I realized that she puts her burger together with what she wants on it, then cuts it in half every time. I eat my burgers whole, no matter how big they get. So, I wondered about all of you myLotters. Do you cut your burger or eat it whole, well, I mean, in bites? Now I'm hungry!

I think veggie burgers come in only one size, from my experience, but if I put that veggie burger on a bun, I will cut it in half. I usually eat veggie burgers without a bun. They taste better to me that way.

@Corbin5 Put the fixings on a vegie burger and you could have the need for a fork. I have been known to put avocado and pesto on my vegie burger plus tomato when its in season and is juicy.

I think I already mentioned that we do not put a burger in a bun, we serve it on a plate with vegetables. Of course we use a knife and a fork to eat the burger.

@JamesHxstatic No, I usually do not serve bread with meat, if there is not a sauce there is no need of bread, I serve vegetables and a side salad.

It depends on what is on it, I cut it in half when I eat out because they always pile so much on

Some places do, yes. I leave the napkin around it and plow it whole.

Hi James. If is too big, I have to cut it in half but if my mouth can manage to bite it whole, I do so.

I eat it whole, but I don't overload it with stuff. If I open my mouth 'way wide to take a bite, my dentures come loose!

OK. If I'm going to do a burger I might as well do it all the way! That means there has to be bacon and melted cheese in there somewhere! I love a bacon cheeseburger. But I also like a burger with sauteed onions and mushrooms and melted Swiss cheese. If there are some extra toppings, I might add them on. But it's not necessary.

That all sounds good except the bacon. I stopped eating it about four years ago.

The largest burger i tried is double quarter pounder. haha that is so huge, it is too much i cannot get my mouth to open as large as the burger so... i had to slice it up and eat after slicing it. i would pick it up with either my fingers or my fork. haha but its so yummy i don't mind getting my hands dirty a bit with cheese and juice.:)

I only cut my burgers if they are terribly messy or causing me a problem. Some burgers if they are overly filled will cause the toppings to fall out all over, same with subs.

I hate being a slob in public. I've been known to grab a knife and fork and eat a huge burger with them cause I'd rather cut the burger up then have it and its contents all over my blouse.

They do get kinda sloppy if they are big ones. There is one place where I cut mine because of that.
