Big Jud's-Local Favorite

Every town has one. Maybe its next to the dry cleaner downtown, maybe a few miles outside of town, but it is the best restaurant you’ve ever been to. Around here we are very lucky to have a few of these types of restaurants, but there is one that soars against the rest. There are 2 in the area, sort of. One is located in Archer, ID the other in Ashton, ID. From where we live the one is archer is only about 25 miles.
What makes it such a memorable place? Well, let me just show you.

DBF decided that we should head up and enjoy a yummy meal out. I’m all for huge hamburgers! So instead of doing the logical thing he decides to order a double… that is 2 patties. 1 patty= 1 POUND of hamburger… So incase your math fails you that is 2 POUNDS of hamburger!! On one bun… Oh my goodness.

I have to say the bun that this monster comes on is just about the best thing I’ve ever eaten. They are sweet, yet salty.. my mouth is watering lol. We had to cut into slices like a pie!

DBF went to town, and regretted it later. But seriously, well worth it.

So for $21.00 we got a 2 pound monster, a basket of fries, 2 drinks AND 2 waffle cones. And we have a ton of leftovers!


  1. Are you sure their only 1 lb patties? lol They look huge! I remember seeing a place featured on the food network one time but can't remember the name. Maybe it was this place. They showed a group of people at a table surrounding this big burger. It definitely looks yummy! Wendell's check comes in today so I may have to do a little grocery shopping and plan a burger day!

    How are you? Its been forever since we have chatted. Are you on Facebook?

    Take Care,

  2. OH MY! I've NEVER seen such a big burger! ... and to think we Texans are always so proud of our our "bigger" everything. Well, it looks like Idaho has certainly out done us on the size of our hamburgers .. HA! HA!

    P.S. My son and daughter-in-law used to live in Mountain Home, ID & my dad lives just across the boarder in Montana ... what a small world!

  3. Mountain home is beautiful! It is about 3 hours from me, but I've been there often through out my life. Montana truly is a different state all on its own! Beautiful however!

  4. My husband would attempt to eat one of these by himself. I think there are some days he would succeed, too. ;)

Barn wood reindeer

I was  recently invited to an ornament exchange. We were instructed to create 12 of the same ornaments. We then wrapped one of the ornaments and put the other 11 in a box. We passed around the wrapped ornaments and opened them, sort of like a white elephant exchange. That way we all got to oogle and google  each others ornaments.

I made reclaimed barn wood reindeer. I think they turned out super cute. What do you think? Anyone want a tutorial?

Broccoli Cheddar Chicken Braid

Source: via Brandi on Pinterest


2 cans Pillsbury Original Crescent Rolls
2 cups chicken chunks, cooked
2 cups cheddar cheese
2 cups broccoli, frozen, steamed and chopped
1/2 cup light mayonnaise
1 egg yolk
fresh rosemary

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
On a parchment paper lined cookie sheet, spread both cans of crescents length wise to form a long rectangle.
Press each of the seams to form a single layer of dough.
In a large bowl, combine chicken, cheese, broccoli and mayonnaise
Spread mixture over the center of the croissant dough evenly to create a log.
Using a sharp knife, cut horizontal strips 1 inch apart down each side of the crescent dough.
Fold the dough strips over the top of the chicken mixture, alternating left and right to create a braid.
Brush the top of the braid with a beaten egg yolk and sprinkle fresh rosemary on top.
Bake for 28 – 30 minutes until golden brown.
