I just said no to my Lean Pocket for lunch today and cruised over to Bellaâ€™s Fat Cat, 2974 N. Oakland Ave., to try The Kramp and Adler Burger. As a weekly guest on the FM 102.1 Kramp & Adler Morning Show, I wanted to show my support of their sandwich, but also, I was grossly curious what a hamburger topped with a bratwurst would taste like.
It definitely doesnâ€™t taste like chicken.
Kramp told me that when he and Adler kicked around ideas for their namesake burger, they wanted something with "a nice distribution of tastes." Mission accomplished.
The "Kradler" burger features a 100 percent sirloin patty topped with cheese, raw onions, yellow mustard and, yes, a grilled bratwurst, on a soft pretzel bun.
The Kramp and Adler Burger is $3.99 and a portion of the proceeds will go towards brain cancer research. The burger is available at both Bella's locations through September.
The ingredients completely work together, but after eating one, be prepared for slug mode because there's a whole lotta meat to process.
Best of all, although the burger is massive, itâ€™s not sloppy because of the limited condiments. Turns out, Krampâ€™s not much of a condiment guy, so they compromised with just a dab of mustard.
Truth be told, I am crazy for ketchup and added a wee bit to my sandwich. Sorry, Kramp, hope you donâ€™t find that too sacrilegious.

The OnMilwaukee.com Great Summer Burger was pretty damn good too! I actually like Bella's turkey burgers better than their hamburgers.
