This recipe, The Everything Burger, is a beef burger topped with "everything", to which I think the writer is alluding to burger sides dishes. The recipe suggested to top the beef patties with jalapenos and coleslaw, but I decided to go one better and topped my burger with jalapeno coleslaw and cheese, which was a lovely combination and flavoursome. I think I will be more adventurous with my burger toppings, and will definitely top my burgers with something over than cheese from now on (or cranberry sauce for my turkey burgers).
The recipe was easy to make, as they are simple beef burgers topped with extras, I actually placed the jalapeno coleslaw underneath, then the cheese and topped with the burger - (if you coleslawlook at the picture, you can see a hint of coleslaw underneath the cheese). I recommend this book to all fellow burger lovers out there.
Here is how my Everything burger turned out:
|The Everything burger|
450 g fresh beef mince
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
vegetable oil, for frying
4 soft burger buns
mustard for spreading
burger suace/burger relish for topping.
1) Place the mince into a medium-sized bowl with the salt and pepper abd gently mix to combine, then divide into four equal sized portions and shape each portion into a patty.
2) Place a largy frying pan or ridged griddle pan over a medium-high heat and add enouh oil to coat the base of the pan. Add the patties, partially cover and cook for about 4 minutes, without movingm until the burgers are brown and release easily from the pan. Turn, place grated cheddar cheese on top of each burger, partially cover again and cook for a further 3 minutes or until cooked to your liking.
3) Spread the mustard on both halves of the buns and place a few slices of jalepenos on eachb un base. Set a burger on top of each base, add some coleslaw and a tomato slice, serve immediately.
