“Cheese Bomb” Burger

Hey! So I was checking through my posts and noticed that I had a draft of post for this recipe nearly ready for a few months. Just forgot it ^^’. So here you go:

I had a lot of thing to take care and not much time to cook. But yesterday I finally managed to cook a little bit and tried an idea that I had for a long time. I did not have all the ingredients I wanted so will present you what I did and put in brackets the original idea.

The main idea of this recipe is to have gooey cheese with crispy bits in the middle of the patty. That way the taste of that filling is nicely concentrated inside.

By the way, even without all the ingredients I wanted, it was pretty awesome. So I hope you give it a try and enjoy it 😉

Ingredients for 1 burger:

  • Burger buns
  • Slice of cheddar
  • 200gr of minced beef and pork (I used a mix, but I’m sure with simply beef it would have been good too)
  • 2 slices of bacon
  • Half an onion
  • 50gr of grated cheddar
  • 25gr of grated mozzarella (You could add additionally 25gr of grated gouda)
  • Quarter of a garlic clove
  • Lettuce leaf
  • 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise
  • Half a teaspoon of Sriracha sauce (Or a Jalapeño pepper)
  • Pepper
  • Pinch of :
    • Smoked paprika
    • Chili powder
    • Cayenne pepper

  1. We start with the filling:
    1. Cook the bacon until it is crispy.
    2. Dice the onion, cook half of the dices until golden brown (I like to cook them using the rendered bacon fat).
    3. Break the bacon in small bits.
    4. Mix in a pot the grated cheeses, crushed garlic, cooked onions and bacon bits. Season with some pepper.
    5. Melt the mix on medium heat (You can add a dash of water to help it to melt).
    6. Remove from the heat when it is nicely mixed and melted. Let it cool down (you can even put it in the freezer).
  2. Then take care of the sauce: Simply mix the mayonnaise, Sriracha, the spices and the rest of the onion dices.
  3. When the filling is properly could down (Not liquid anymore but not ice hard either), start forming the patty:
    1. Take around 2/3 of the meat, and form a sort of bowl from it.
    2. Put your filling in that “bowl”.
    3. With the rest of the meat form the top.
    4. While slowly turning the patty, pat the meat until the top and the bowl form an uniform patty.
  4. Toast the buns.
  5. Cook your patty until golden brown and add the cheddar slice on top at the end.
  6. Spread your sauce on the top bun.
  7. Build your burger (from bottom to top):
    1. Bottom bun
    2. Lettuce leaf
    3. Patty
    4. Top bun with the sauce.

Bon appétit!

“El Pollo Mexicana” Burger

El pollo mexicana

Hey everybody! Longtime no posting, I had a lot of exam to write but I’m back!

I did this burger quite some time ago after being inspired during a Mexican dinner with some friends.

You can make it with chicken mince or a chicken breast, and you can even add some sour cream.

I hope you give it a try and enjoy it 😉

For 2 burgers:

  • Burger buns
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 tomato
  • 1 small onion or a shallot
  • 100gr of black beans
  • Cheddar
  • Half a lemon or lime
  • Some lettuce
  • 300gr of chicken mince or 2 chicken breasts
  • Spices:
    • Paprika (normal and smoked if you have)
    • Cayenne pepper
    • Black pepper
    • Chili powder
  • Optional: One big teaspoon of sour cream

  1. First mix one teaspoon of each spice together
  2. Dice thinly the onion (or shallot) and the tomato and mix them both with the juice of half a lemon (or lime). That makes a very simple salsa.
  3. Transform the beans in a paste by using a food processor or a pestle and mortar.
  4. Mash the avocado.
  5. Form patties from your chicken mince or butterfly the breasts.
  6. Cook your chicken on medium-high heat in a pan with a little bit of olive oil.
  7. Toast your buns.
  8. When the chicken is golden brown, add a dash of water and the spices and toss the chicken in those spices. As soon as the chicken is nicely covered with spices remove it from the heat. Otherwise the spices will burn.
  9. Finally build your burger (from bottom to top):
    1. Bottom bun
    2. Lettuce
    3. Beans paste
    4. Cheddar
    5. Optional: Sour cream
    6. Chicken in spices
    7. Mashed avocado
    8. Salsa
    9. Top bun

Bon appétit! =D
