Now we know what Andy Samberg is doing when he’s not acting or writing jokes or impersonating Nicolas Cage: he’s cooking up fancy hamburgers.

The Brooklyn Nine-Nine star teamed with California-based Umami Burger to create the Samberger. (Bet you didn’t see that coming.) It’s part of Umami’s Artist Series, which calls on celebrities to create unique burger combinations, People reports. Then, part of the proceeds go to a charity of the star’s choosing.

Inspired by a classic Chicago hot dog, the Samberger includes a beef patty, spicy sport peppers, roasted tomatoes, chopped dill pickles, kombu relish, roasted garlic aioli, poppy seeds and yellow mustard.

“We tried many combinations and flavors, and ultimately landed on a Chicago Dog-themed burger that has literally nothing to do with me, ” the actor said in a release. “But it tasted really good so we went with it.”

The Samberger will be available at Umami locations nationwide for $13 beginning Sep. 23, and $1 from each sale will go to the Center for Early Intervention of Deafness.
