Bannock Burgers

I love bannock.  Warm, crunchy-ish on the outside, soft and fluffy on the inside, simple and sublime. Down home and, well ... downtown, it appears.

Never make it, rarely eat it, but LOVE bannock! - plain, with jam or cinnamon and sugar. Last night my friend K made a big batch of it to use instead of hamburger buns. I was deeply concerned about this, (although didn't want to say anything K!) for two reasons.
One, I would not be allowed to eat a crap load of them while still burning hot, damp with oil and drippy with jam.
Two, manners dictated that I had to wait till we ate them as a group in the form of burger buns. 

The wait was painful.

The burgers - divine!

I forgot to mention, we put rhubarb jam on the burgers...a perfect flavour foil to everything.  (oooooh, very nice pun there, if I do say so myself!)

Worth the wait - thanks all for the great dinner and fine company!
