Burger House 41 put players from the boys basketball teams at Ashwaubenon High School and Notre Dame Academy to the burger building test as part of a friendly competition that doubles as a fundraiser for each school.
Members from each squad designed burgers that will be on the Burger House 41 menu through Feb. 15. Each school nets 41 cents per burger sold. A trophy and another $200 goes the school whose burger sells better.
Both burgers use the same patty and are topped with bacon to keep the playing field even.
In addition to the bacon, Ashwaubenon’s Jaguar Deluxe is topped with two slices of American cheese, mayo, lettuce and tomato on a Sheboygan-style hard roll.
Meanwhile, Notre Dame’s Triton Special teamed its bacon with Wisconsin cheddar cheese, buttery fried onions and Triton Sauce (thousand island) on a pretzel bun.
Both burgers sell for $5.50 at the restaurant, 1860 W. Mason St.
I’ve tried both, but because Ashwaubenon High School saw fit to grant me a diploma many, many years ago, I’ll refrain from declaring which was my favorite; lest I be accused of bias.
