Oh who doesn’t like good burgers in the bun? Specially if they are nice, juicy homemade hamburgers? And I’m not talking about the some restaurants “claim” to be homemade – I’m talking about the real thing – the one you make with your own little hands 🙂
Every so often I feel like having a good burger and although my butcher has them already prepared (made with their own little hands), I prefer to make my own. I can add exactly what seasoning and flavours I want and that makes all the difference (for me). My only cheating part is that I use a hamburger press… but just to make them look nicer and even… you can easily mold them only with your hands. I used to use a cookie cutter till I found the burger press. So it’s all about what feels more comfortable for you…
Let me show you how I do it 🙂 the rest is up to you…
- 550 g minced beef
- 200 g minced pork
- 50 g chopped chorizo without skin
- 40 g chopped bacon
- 1/2 finely chopped onion
- 1 clove garlic minced
- Parsley finely chopped, to taste
- 1 egg
- 3 tbsp grated bread
- Ham or cheese for stuffing optional
- 1 tbsp margarine
- 1 onion cut into slices
- Salt and pepper to taste
- In a bowl, add the minced meats, bacon, chorizo, onion, garlic, parsley and egg. Season with salt and pepper and mix well with your hands.
- Add the grated bread and mix again. The quantity of grated bread may vary as it depends on the desired consistency for the mixture.
- Make balls with 150g each
- Filling (optional): divide the meat into two parts. Flatten the first part. Over, put a slice of cheese and / or ham. Flatten the second part of the meat and place on top of the cheese / ham and press so that the two parts are combined
- To a frying pan, add the margarine and onion slices.
- Once the butter has melted, add the burgers.
- Fry everything in medium heat.
- Serve on bread or on the plate with a fries and salad
