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.

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.

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.
