In the latest installment of Eater Elements, the Holeman & Finch burger gets broken down. Chef/owner Linton Hopkins "turned to his childhood memories to create his ideal cheeseburger." The result is a double stack topped with cheese, onions, and pickles that's "as American as apple pie and baseball," which makes it fitting that the burger can now be found at three H&F Burger stands at Turner Field.
Head over to Eater National to learn more about the burger's five essential elements: the bun, the patties, the cheese, the toppings, and the condiments. Of special note are the bun-to-patty scale (Hopkins wants about ? of an inch of burger outside the bun), the "melt quality" and nostalgia factor of the Kraft American cheese, and the topping that doesn't make the cut because it's a "travesty" when it's out of season.
