What would you order for your last meal on earth?

I'd order a medium rare, bacon cheeseburger with blue cheese and onion rings

By Walter Brooks


My favorite bacon cheeseburger today is at The Beehive on Tremont Street in Boston and the Land Ho! in Orleans or Harwichport.

My wife and I were dining a decade ago at the Julien at the Hotel Meridien (now the Langham) in the Financial District in Boston, when she was served a foie gras so sumptuous that she said it's what she would order if she were on Death Row and had one meal left on earth.

Or course, if anyone eats foie gras often enough that last meal will come much sooner, but it made me think about what I would order, and then even a harder choice:

What if you had to eat the same dish every meal?

Now this is a tougher choice, and while a bacon cheesburger with blue cheese won out, Yankee Pot Roast and Sauteed Cod were in the running for a while.

So my question for YOU, dear reader, is to add a comment below with YOUR choice if you had to eat the same meal at dinner for the rest of your life.
