And last but oh-my-god-not-least is this Monte Cristo-inspired insanity from Umami Burger (that was put together in collaboration with Top Chef season 6 winner Michael Voltaggio). In lesser hands (i.e. yours), this burger could have gone off the rails, but it doesn't, and is instead kind of incredible. The bun is soaked in custard and then deep-fried, is then filled with Gruyere fondue, their house burger-blend, and prosciutto (why regular Monte Cristos aren't served with prosciutto is now a mystery to us). It's also served with a side of maple syrup and a dusting of powdered sugar.
