The Burger

Story

This is THE Burger. I am very sure this would tingle everyone who loves a perfect burger. That first bite where you get your jaw out of place because you can’t get a full bite. The second bite where you hit the bacon mixed in the perfect blend of vegetables, cheese, meat and toasted hamburger bread. Enjoy!

Directions

Making the burger patties

  1. Add the following ingredients to a mixer bowl:
    1. Ground beef
    2. Ground pork
    3. half of a onion finely chopped
    4. Spices
  2. Mix everything for 1 minute while adding shredded cheese at medium speed.
  3. Finally add 2 eggs and mix quickly for 30 seconds
  4. Weigh the meat mixture to two sizes. 170g/6oz. or 200g/7oz. (I use 2 patties of 6oz. for the double burger and 7oz. for the single one. I don’t recommend going out of these measurements. The ratio of a good bite from this burger is in the perfect size. Then it’s better to share half with someone or eat more than one. If you don’t have wooden skewers I suggest doing a 7+6oz burger combination for a better stabilizing. The double could get too tall to keep it standing without some help!)
  5. Roll the weighted meat into balls.
  6. Add a little water puddle to your kitchen counter or cutting board.
  7. Rinse your hands in water, (still wet) make the meat ball into a burger in your water puddle.
  8. Repeat this procedure until all the meat balls are made into patties.

Final steps for THE Burger

*Add burger buns to an oven at 100oC/212oF ish… Just to give them a little crisp. Give them 5 minutes in the oven
**I use lots of real butter to fry the burgers.

***In the beginning I suggest you to prepare the bread, dressing and vegetables part of the burger. It’s hard to juggle everything while frying 4 burger. Have everything ready to load the patties on top with bacon and build your layers if you’re reaching for the double.

  1. Fry the burger at maximum heat for 20 seconds, then turn down plate to medium heat.
  2. After 2-3 minutes turn the burger, and add strips of bacon next to the burgers.
  3. Fry the other side of the burgers for another 2-3 minutes.
  4. Flip bacon strips, and burgers again.
  5. Then add a slice of cheddar and Jarlsberg cheese on top of the burger while it’s still hot.
  6. Let the burger fry one more minute.
  7. Plate up the burger after my suggested setup.

Summary A burger that takes time to make, but that meets every expectation. A little bit spicy, peppered, filled with cheese and fresh cut salad. The twist with cucumber, corn and carrots really makes this on stand out from the crowd.
