Mike: Hi, Jane. Tomorrow we're having a cooking contest. Do you remember?
Jane: Of course I remember! Yesterday evening, I was reading one of my mom's cooking magazines, and I read about a new hamburger.
Jane: Yeah, it like a cake! You know, we've talked about junk food before, but this is amazing. It's a big beefburger, and they put sharp Cheddar cheese and two slices of bacon...
Mike: What... Can I just stop you there? What is sharp cheddar cheese?
Jane: Sharp cheddar cheese? Sharp cheese is a cheese that has a strong flavor.
Jane: So cheese can be mild or sharp.
Jane: But anyway, back to the burger, it's got... yeah, it's a big beef patty, with sharp cheddar cheese and two slices of bacon. And here's the key.
Mike: Mmm, the bacon sounds good.
Jane: Yeah, but the key ingredient... is actually a sweet glazed donut. Can you believe it?
Mike: Oh, no! It's disgusting.
Jane: It's what they're calling "Baseball's Best Burger," and they're serving it at their baseball games.
Mike: Baseball's weirdest burger, maybe!
Jane: Yeah, they added a glazed donut so it's sweet. And apparently they cut it in half and toast it and use that as the bun for this burger. It... I couldn't... I thought it was a joke when I first read about it. I thought it must be a joke, but apparently it's true.
Mike: It really makes me wonder. Right. I just wonder, how would someone even come up with that, the idea of using a donut as a hamburger bun.
Jane: Good question... I mean, believe it or not, I remember hearing about sandwiches that Americans like which have peanut butter and jelly as the filling!
Mike: Well, that's, yeah, that's a classic kid's sandwich. Peanut butter and jelly or even peanut butter and honey, you can have...
Jane: Well, what you call jelly, isn't that what British English speakers would call jam?
Mike: Yeah, jam.
Jane: So peanut butter and jam. So it's the savory peanut butter, salty, peanutty tasting butter and something like sweet strawberry jam.
Mike: Yeah, but I guess it's kind of like putting pineapple on your pizza. But there's something about the sweet, tart pineapple combined with the salty, savory ingredients of a pizza that is actually... I like it.
Jane: Well, I think, if you can combine something like peanut butter and jam, then combining a hamburger with a donut doesn't seem so strange. I couldn't believe that when I read about it in my mom's magazine. But I went on the Internet and had a look, and there were people saying that it sounds disgusting and looks disgusting, but actually they looked quite tasty.
Mike: I can't even begin to imagine what it would taste like. My taste buds cannot picture it, you know, I have an image of a donut in my head and an image of a nice juicy hamburger with a couple of strips of bacon on.
