In the factory that was MGM, this was clearly an exceptional project, one to draw even finer work than usual. Then, after it began to run on television, new generations changed its status from movie to phenomenon to something greater. No moment is unfamiliar, no performance or scene not beloved. As the on-screen prologue notes, time has been powerless to put its kindly philosophy out of fashion.” Like the Wizard of Oz, this Sweet & Tangy Pork Burger is a classic American dish with a splash of color that will take you to another land. As a nod to the Kansas farm that Dorothy calls home, the juicy burger patties are made with pork from Frolona Farm (in Franklin, GA), where heritage breed pigs are pastured and fully free to forage as they please. The summer squash and crisp lettuces are from small-scale farms, too, and add a brightness to rival any Yellow Brick Road.It’s a meal the whole family will love, and will remind you there is no place like home.
