Defibrillator Sandwich

Tyler Mader’s Defibrillator:

This insane tower of Wisconsin flavor was born out of tradition.  To celebrate the opening round of the NCAA March Madness Basketball Tournament, Tyler and his friends would hunker down for a long day of action at one of their favorite sports bars while partaking in buzzer beater upsets and massive burgers. In honor of one of America’s great annual college sporting events, Tyler has created his own version of the classic burger that he calls the Defibrillator.  Please don’t try this at home unless you are a true professional! 


Situated atop a grilled sourdough bun, this 1 pound burger seasoned with the Spice House’s special blend is carefully draped in Wisconsin cheese tradition.  Perfectly aged cheddar and fresh mozzarella are melted to perfection then topped with Nueske’s applewood smoked bacon, baby arugula and heirloom tomatoes.  Layer two consists of Usinger’s Famous Original Bratwurst and Knackwurst butterflied and grilled to a golden brown.  The third layer represents Milwaukee’s strong German heritage with Mader’s Famous Homemade Potato Pancake.  Layer four adds sweetness as the sausages are topped with Vidalia onions and Baby Bella mushrooms that have been caramelized in brown butter and sugar.  Finally, the crown. The Defibrillator is finished up with two farm fresh fried eggs from S and R Egg Farms.
