Lucky Boy Oh Myyy

Restaurant: Lucky Boy Burger Shop

Location: 3430 N 16th St, Phoenix, AZ 85016

Price Per Person: Approximately $5

Ordered: 1/4 lb Lucky Original with Fries

 

Lucky Boy is hands down my absolute favorite place to get a burger. Flame broiled burger and thick cut fries for under $5 and I usually can only finish about half of it on any given day. I had the Lucky Original which is the burger with shredded lettuce, tomato, pickles and a tangy ranch sauce. Any burger from Lucky Boy automatically comes with fries… and they are beautiful fries! Super thick cut and cooked perfectly and just enough salt!

 

Combine all this wonderful food with the fact that this is a total dive/hole in the wall place and you have a whole lot of awesome, in my humble opinion. But hey, don’t take my word for it, get your ass over there and try it out for yourself!

So here is one of my recipes that I would like to share with you!

Creamy Mushroom Sauce:
4-6oz chopped mushrooms- I used baby portobello, but any will do
1/2 cup chopped onions
1 large clove of garlic minced (1 tablespoon of minced garlic if you’re using the stuff in a jar)
3 Basil leaves coarsely chopped
1/2 stick of butter
2/3 Cup of milk
8oz room temp cream cheese
Salt and PepperIn a skillet melt the butter and add the chopped mushrooms, onion and garlic. Cook on medium high heat for 3 minutes then add basil leaves. Cook until contents are soft and butter has started cooking off. Transfer to a sauce pan and add cream cheese. Stir until combined and mixture is creamy then add milk slowly and whisk together carefully as to avoid splatter. Add salt and pepper to taste and pour over your favorite dish. I poured mine over seasoned chicken breasts. Enjoy and let me know what you think of it if you happen to use it!
