Anybody For A Slugburger?

It tastes a lot better than it sounds, rest assured!
Our roving Dixie foodie (how DOES the boy stay so svelte, anyway?) John T. Edge, reports from Mississippi that he's discovered both the Slugburger (a local specialty in Booneville, Mississippi - the seat of Prentiss County) and the Dough Burger (its cousin from Corinth in Alcorn County). Both of these local styles sprung from rationing of meat during World War I (not II!), and are adulterations of hamburger meat with whatever proved handiest.
John's article is in this month's Oxford American (it may be easier for me to find than for some of y'all who live off), and I drooled over the thought of tossing down a dollar for one of those bunned babies at some sidestreet, off-court-square poolhall.
The library is closing, so I'll post more later. Time to eat me some little bit of not much anyway.

    This on slugburgers from a Corinth, MS website. My mom used to make a variation of slugburgers to cut down on the costs of ground meat .... in fact she claimed the fillers and breadings helped keep the meat together ...

    slugs invade our greenhouse and eat our orchids. You're welcome to as many as you want!

    Is this the same thing as 'bread burgers'?
    There's a couple of local places that adds finely chopped onion and a couple of slices of sandwich bread crumbled in the ground meat before they're fried?

    Here is a link to a newspaper piece I did last summer after attending the Slugburger Festival in Corinth, Mississippi:
