Whistle Stop Burger
The Whistle Stop Cafe, in Juliette, GA is renown for not only Fried Green tomatoes but Fried Pickles as well. The state of Georgia also grows the sweetest onion on the face of the earth, the Vidallia. This is a simple, but yummy culmination of all that is good, and includes the wonderful Sutter Home Cabernet. While it does have 3 separate steps for cooking, the outcome is worth the effort. That you for your interest. Would love to come see you soon! Linda

What can be better, a wonderful cabernet, juicy beef, sweet Vidallia onions! I've never entered a contest before. I don't cook professionally. I LOVE to cook and try new things, and watching the Foodnetwork gets my creative juices flowing. Napa in the fall.... that would just top it all off! Thanks for your consideration! Linda
