Thanksgiving on a Bun? It’s Exactly What You Think

It’s called the Gobbler Burger, and we’re interested.

Thanksgiving celebrations are looking a little unconventional this year, so why not embrace the change with full force and try a new twist on the traditional Thanksgiving meal – no cooking necessary! Georgie Porgie’s new burger, described as “Thanksgiving on a bun” might be your new go-to this holiday.

The Gobbler Burger is available this month at Georgie Porgie’s for all of the adventurous eaters this holiday season. A quarter pound all-natural beef burger is topped with turkey slices, a heap of mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, cream cheese, green beans and French’s friend onions all served on a locally baked bun and served with – you guessed it – a side of gravy.

“In a year like this, why not? Thanksgiving is full of delicious traditions, so why not put them on a burger?” said Gina Esch, Marketing Consultant for Georgie Porgie’s. “The original creation was actually inspired by a customer a few years back. We refined it this year and completed it with a side of gravy. No better time than now to splurge.”

Their custard Flavor Forecast this month also predicts that the day before Thanksgiving (Nov. 25) will have Pumpkin Pie custard, so you can experience the entire Thanksgiving meal, start to finish in just two dishes – a burger and custard!

Georgie Porgie’s is offering online orders with curbside pickup, as well their recently built take-out window and heated patio for those who want to enjoy their Gobbler Burgers and custard in the crisp fall air.

Their Oak Creek location is located at 9555 S. Howell Ave, and they are open Monday through Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.

While they are not open on Thanksgiving Day, they are open the day before and the day after, as well as throughout the month when they will be offering this special holiday burger.
