Eating healthy can raise questions such as, "Are crayons a fruit or a vegetable?" and "How many steaks does a growing baby need?" Answer culinary questions with today's deal: for $10, you get $20 worth of healthy, organic burgers at French Meadow Bakery & Cafe on Lyndale Avenue South.
A pioneer of certified-organic baking, French Meadow serves up plentiful plates of patty-based fare featuring local ingredients and freshly baked yeast-free bread. Snuggled up in a fluffy potato bun, the classic beef burger boasts a base of grass-fed protein, topped with organic cheddar and caramelized onion ilk ($10). For something slightly less traditional, opt for the bison burger, which wallows in blue cheese and bacon ($11.95). Free-range turkey patties cause appetites to take flight with wings of local gouda ($9.50) and the veggie burger ($9) sports a slathering of chive aioli to keep mouth-motors running smoothly between carburetor cleansings.
