Guess what? Yep, chicken butt. But also, Bluestem Brasserie just unveiled a completely ridiculous, completely must-eat, Sat/Sun only Brunch Burger THAT HAS HASH BROWNS ON IT and COULD BE TOTALLY FREE THIS WEEKEND if you keep reading.

First, the burger. It starts with humble beginnings: three patties, and a little bacon.

Then comes the homemade American cheese, which, unlike actual American cheese, is really made of cheese.

Once the cheese is melted, it's assembly time. Up first: the grass-fed beef patty.

And finally, it's topped with a fried, sunny-side-up egg and served with spicy ketchup.

Okay, now on to the free part: all that 10 lucky readers have to do to get a free one is Tweet THIS, and we'll hook some randomly super-lucky readers up with a burger they can redeem from now til July 27th.
