"The Simpsons" Party: Krusty Burgers

A staple in the world of The Simpsons, Krusty Burgers are the "Big Mac" of the fast food chain "Krusty Burger", founded by Krusty the Clown and Bart Simpson's personal favorite. According to Simpsons Wiki, Krusty Burger "It's known to use a variety of animal meats in it, without any of them being what one would normally eat, including zoo animals, road kill and insects". 

Now, for my recipe I wanted to pay homage to the mixed meat not-sure-what-we're-eating spirit that Krusty uses for his burgers, while also making a delicious burger.
