Bobby Flay's Retro Burgers

Bobby Flay opens his sixth restaurant on New York's Long Island next week, one where The Early Show's resident chef will be serving burgers -- retro burgers -- with the works!

Long a fan of Americana cuisine, Flay will be making up retro meals of premium patties with all sorts of toppings, sauces, fries and shakes at the upscale . He plans to franchise them all over the country.

On the show Thursday, Flay served up some of the hottest recipes from the menu, a gourmet throwback to the classic burger joints that are a part of Americana pop culture

Flay's first love has always been the grill, and when he combined it with authentic American flavors, he came up with the offerings of Bobby's Burger Palace. There'll ten signature burgers to pick from.

Flay's recipes come from his various cookbooks, inspirations he's learned on the road, and the flavors that he loves. His burgers range from a Napa Valley Burger with a hint of citrus flavor to a Philly burger done with Provolone with peppers and onions, to a cheeseburger with both Brie and goat cheese.

Sauces will include chipotle ketchup, BBP Burger sauce, and jalapeno hot sauce. All burgers will be made from Angus Beef, and his buns will be potato.

You can add potato chips to all of your burgers for "crunchification," and for sides, you can get hot potato chips with a blue cheese béchamel dip or fries with Bobby's secret fry sauce.
