The "Who Dat" Burger and more from Worst Cooks in America

On Sunday's episode of the Food Network's Worst Cooks in America I made gelato and the Who Dat Burger!

Here I am during the "Skill Drill."  My gelato made the top three with the unique flavor combination of apricot, bacon, honey and lavender!

For the Main Dish Challenge, I created what I like to call the "Who Dat" Burger - the winning dish of the night for the Blue Team!

Inspired by Home - A bit homesick for New Orleans, Chet serves Chef Bobby an olive-and-pickle-topped burger inspired by the flavors of a muffaletta, a traditional sandwich from his hometown. The Blue Team mentor is wowed by it: "Very smart idea," he tells Chet. "It tastes like a muffaletta." Chet's burger is ultimately named the most successful of the day, and he survives elimination.

Here are the the ingredients for the Who Dat Burger:
  • Ground Chuck
  • Olive Salad (black olives, green olives, pickles, capers, celery)
  • Bacon
  • Provolone Cheese
  • Toasted Bun
As my side dish, I recreated my mom's delicious potato salad:
  • potatoes
  • eggs
  • mayo
  • relish
  • a touch of mustard
  • salt 
  • pepper
