Flickr user Marshall Astor brought to our attention the beauty of this bacon, pineapple and Gruyere burger from El Segundo, Calif., restaurant the Counter -- and the brilliance of the chain's "Custom Built Burgers" motto. An unexpected combination, this burger promises an intriguing, complex burst of flavor, with the earthy creaminess of Gruyere, the salty chew of bacon, topped with the refreshing juice of a grilled pineapple slice.
On selection at the burger joints is a choice of 10 cheeses, four out of 28 toppings (from black olives to dried cranberries), three bun options, and -- gasp! -- a choice of 18 sauces, from Caramelized Onion Marmalade to Horseradish Mayo. Check the Counter's Web site for locations, get inspired by their menu to try your own concoctions or follow the Counter's tips to make your own burger at AOL Food.
