The Heart Attack
I have the biggest soft spot on my palate for burgers. When preparing your burger you have to let your imagination go wild! At least that’s my thinking. You can make a patty out of pork, lamb, turkey, basically from your favorite proteins. For this recipe we are going with the basic beef burger. I have a few components I like in my burger and when you combine them you have the makings of a heart attack! I have added bacon and egg in this burger, BUT to ease my conscience just a little bit, I skipped the cheese.
For 4 burgers
Toppings of your choice: I use mayonnaise salsa
For the patty:
Quarter Kilogram Minced beef * Remember, when you make a burger a lot of the fat will drain off the meat, don’t select mince that’s too lean,you will end up with a dry burger. On the flip side if there’s too much fat in the mince it will shrink up and harden.*
1 medium sized onion
Salt and Pepper
You can use your hands to mix it all up then shape into patties.
Heat oil in a non-stick pan over medium-high heat, then cook patties for 2-3 minutes each side or until cooked to taste, I prefer them medium done.
For the buns, spread some butter on the buns and place on a hot pan for 1-2 minutes.
Build up your burger and enjoy 🙂
