How do you make your burgers?
I'm getting a little bored with my pepperjack, ranch burger and I'm looking for new ideas.
Changing the type of bread is the easiest way to change the taste. And if that fails, just throw some sweet potatoes fries on it.
It's a fucking hamburger, not a side-salad
Buy ground elk meat, mix with a little worcestshire, soy and ketchup, salt and pepper and a tiny amount of very finely shredded onions. Throw on some white cheese once you've flipped the burger, Toast buns in a pan with a thin coating of olive oil, and use a lighter or torch to melt the cheese on top of the burger. Then throw on some kale, tomato and pickles.
It's actually a pretty healthy burger comprable to a turkey burger since ground elk meat is so lean but without that weird flavor and consistency of ground turkey meat.
I normally do salt/pepper/worcestershire/garlic powder to mine, cheese on top, grilled onions, and toasted buns. The rest is condiments/vegetables, of which I basically only put pickles and then it's on the side.
For condiments I always do homemade mayo and homemade BBQ sauce. Sometimes I skip the BBQ depending on what I'm going for with the burger.
Also sometimes I make onion rings instead of grilled onions and put it on the burger. Also french fries, fucking love home made french fries.
>if you have to do that much
that is like 5 minutes of prep at maximum and is standard no matter what kind of meat you're using. If you're just buying pre-made burger patties or just using ground meat without seasoning then you are doing it completely wrong. Seriously, if you think basic seasoning is doing something wrong I have no idea what you're doing on a cooking board.
>before it hits heat
you have definitely never made a halfway decent burger. you have to season the meat before you make patties out of it and definitely before you actually put it in the pan or on the grill.
i order a double double with two flying dutchmen to create a 6 patty 6 cheese deathwitch
I like my burgers simple.
When I make them myself at home, they're basically a Double Triple Balty Deluxe on a raft, four by four, animal-style, extra shingles with a shimmy and a squeeze, light axle grease.
I always make sure to make it cry, burn it, and let it swim.
Does it have to be beef/red meat? I made some very nice chicken burgers earlier:
4-5 skinless chicken thighs
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/2 a beaten egg
Trim the chicken thighs and mince them, mix with the breadcrumbs, egg and a little salt. Form into patties, and then coat in more breadcrumbs (~1/2 cup per. patty). Fry in oil at a medium heat.
I just served them in a bun with lettuce & mayo. Lovely they were too.
I usually squirt a load of jizz on mine. I got the idea from McDonalds.
they're literally the best sides for most burgers.
add some breadcrumbs to soak up your worcestershire sauce
i have a place near me that sells a 3-meat burger
bretty gud if you like lamb. i think the chicken just balances out too much fattiness
If you can buy them, get pretzel buns.
I fucking love pretzel buns.
I've never seen a pretzel like that.
Or is this like the American "all burgers are sandwiches meme" ie. it is what we say it is even though it's wrong
Grilled Pineapple, Bacon, Gouda, Red Onion, good BBQ Sauce, served on a King's Hawaiian bread hamburger bun. Other veggies optional.
Best eaten in an uncomfortable hurry with a room full of angry islanders glaring at your fat white ass.
Someone posted this one at some point, I really like it.
Makes 2 large burgers
1 pound 80-85% lean Black Angus ground beef
1/4 cup Pure New England maple syrup, plus more for basting
4 thick slices applewood smoked bacon
1 MacIntosh apple
4 slices Vermont cheddar cheese
2 Bulkie rolls
Salt and pepper to taste
In a medium bowl, combine the beef, 1/4 cup maple syrup, and salt and pepper to taste. Mix well using your hands.
Form into 2 8-ounce patties. Set aside in the refrigerator.
Cook the bacon on the grill, in a skillet, or in the oven. Peel and slice the apple. Place in small bowl and sprinkle lemon juice over the slices to prevent browning.
Place the apple slices on grill and cook for about one minute on each side. Remove and set aside.
Grill the burgers over high heat, turn after 3 or 4 minutes and move to a cooler part of the grill. Drizzle some maple syrup over the burgers as they cook. Toast the buns as the burgers cook.
When the burgers are cooked to your liking, take two slices or more of bacon and place on top of each burger. Arrange some apple slices on top of the bacon.
Place a slice of cheese on top of each burger, cover the grill and let melt for about a minute.
Place the burgers on the buns.
Well what i do is find some nice juicy balloon tits, remove them in one quick slice, and season it with one of those coating mixs you get at the supermarket.
And just fry it on both sides till golden brown. I usually throw in some pan fried mushrooms in butter as well.
I don't think anyone here is referring to fast food
