  • Slugburgers hail from Corinth, MS for 31 years has been celebrated at the annual Slugburger Festival held in the same town. Make with ground meat and extenders such as soy grits or cornmeal, these burgers were once sold for 5¢ which was also known as a "slug,' hence the name "slugburger." I'm fixing up two recipes for my first taste of a slugburger.

    New videos every Monday, Thursday, and Saturday 8 pm EST.

    You should do those up gourmet style. Add some Edam cheese to both after taking the patties out of the deep fry one onto a pan.

    an idea would be to put a small amount of cheese inside the meat, doesnt need to be much, but it might help add flavor and even make it easier to chew. on a side note, you could use other things as well, such as a tomato slice, or some very thin layer of barbecue sauce(or any sauce you enjoy).

    So . . . that “corn meal” you used looked an awful lot like corn flour or corn starch. Up here in Canada, our corn meal is kind of yellow in colour and sort of course in texture. Was that really corn meal? If so, what would be the equivalent product here in Canada? Love your videos. I am in the process of working through all of them, lol. You are a wonderful cook and you are so honest in your reviews of the final dishes. Thank-you for all you efforts and for sharing them with all of us. 👵🏻🐾💕🇨🇦

    I wanted to know how many slugs it took to make a burger. Try adding corn meal to bread recipe.
