Coney Burger and Dill Dip | The Cupboard Drawer Recipe Book

Updated on February 13, 2010

Coney Island is an Icon of American Amusement Park Entertainment. In it’s heyday during the postwar 40’s and 50’s well over a million visitors a year went to the park, beach, and boardwalk to enjoy the summer fun. It never was centrally managed and fell into disrepair during the 60’s and 70’s. Well folks it’s coming back, Rides have been rebuilt and improved, The beach and boardwalk are open all year round (although lifeguards are only on duty from Memorial Day to Labor Day) and Nathan's Hot Dogs and the New York Aquarium are open almost every day of the year. The Coney IslandMuseum is also open on Saturdays and Sundays, from noon to 5 PM all year round.

The other rides and attractions are generally open from Easter through Labor Day and the Beach, while open all year is staffed with Lifeguards only from Memorial Day through Labor Day. I don’t think my folks ever got a chance to go to Coney Island, but through out the USA during it’s peak and largely because of the great Nathans Hot Dogs, if you ordered a ‘Coney Island’ at any diner in America, you’d get a ‘decked out’ Dog with all the trimmings. Here is a little variation that will have you thinking Roller Coasters and Boardwalk, Do Enjoy…

      Never, ever heard of Coney burgers. I've visited Coney Island several times. Saw the Thunderbolt in disrepair before they tore it down. That was a real treat. That big old roller coaster covered with vines.

      Those recipes made me want to cook (which doesn't happen that frequently these days). I am glad they are rebuilding. Coney Island is like a historic landmark. Great memories for thousands of people.

      Dear Hmrjmr,

      My mouth is watering. You have brought back some very wonderful memories for me. My Dad used to take my sister and me to Coney Island every Sunday morning. There is nothing like a Nathan's hot dog and french fries, but it is in Coney Island that it tastes the best. Great hub.

      Good morning, nothing like the Coney treats of New York City. I never had a chance at the real McCoy but on visits to New York I have eaten some of the creations of yesteryear. I may have to try this recipe for a break from my Mexican food style diet. Keep them coming I am saving the recipes up! The chocolate waffles recipe worked great as pancakes! I have to make some changes due to lack of all the equipment or ingredients, but the results are still good.

      The Coney burgers sound delicious. There is a small store in my locality that makes a very good spanish sausage. I usually mix it 50/50 with ground beef. It make a sandwich or a meat loaf very spicey. The same is true with meat balls.
