Hamburgers


Hamburgers
Hamburgers don't have to be the greasy flabby things you find in fast-food outlets, well-made they can be excellent. It's a very convivial recipe as everything goes on the table, and everyone assembles their own burger according to personal taste.

Step by step recipe

With this mix, form flat rounds of 10 cm or 4 inches diameter and ½ cm or ¼ inch thick.

The best way is to use circles of greaseproof paper of the same diameter to put under the meat.

Stage 4 - 4 min.

Cook meat rounds on barbecue or in a frying-pan with a lttle oil.

Meanwhile split the buns and toast lightly on the inside, using a toaster or the barbecue.

Make hamburgers: on each half buns put (for example) mustard, tomato slice, pickled gherkins, salad, meat, onion slices, etc.

Then put together the two parts, and enjoy it.
Remarks
You can make a shallot sauce: after cooking some of the burgers in the frying pan, add a finely chopped shallot, and cook it in the remaining fat 2 minutes. Then add a half glass of dry white wine, and boil while scraping the bottom of the pan with a wooden spatula. Add 10 cl cream, allow to thick over a low heat. Use as a dressing on the meat in your burger.

You can also try this version of Janet Clark from Toronto who replaces the onion with a sachet of onion soup, and adds 2 or 3 tablespoons of oat flakes to the meat. Delicious.

One difference between us and our Canadian friends: their burgers are much thicker, about 1 cm or more.

Did you know it: Hamburger is not an american recipe originally, but a german one, from the people of Hambourg, the Hamburgers. They brought it to the USA.
Keeping
