What's a Slugburger?

The slugburger, like most great inventions, is a regional southern delicacy born from Depression-era necessity, but eat assured--it's free from garden-crawlers. Corinth, Mississippi, about 100 miles southeast of Memphis, Tennessee, celebrates the curiously-named sandwich beginning July 11 at the 26th Annual Slugburger Festival. Local pride for the slugburger is fervent, and for good reason: chances are, you've never seen a burger quite like this. --Sarah McColl, Shine staff
