Brunch Burger

This burger is created after I was torn between breakfast for dinner or a hamburger. I decided to combine them for the best of both worlds. The burger turned into an absolute monster, featuring avocado, a hashbrown patty, bacon, and a fried egg. I would not recommend this burger if you’re looking for a ‘light’ meal. I have no regrets about it, hell I’d serve it with a Bloody Mary if I could. This recipe is just for one, so modify it as needed if making for more!

Ingredients

  • Hamburger Bun
  • Hamburger patty [ I made this from a pre-made patty my mom gave me, can always make your own from ground beef]
  • Half an Avocado, sliced
  • 1 Hashbrown Patty
  • 1 Slice of Bacon
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Slice Cheddar Cheese
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt & Pepper

Let’s Get Cooking

To get started, cook your hashbrown patty per your preference, I like to do it in the air fryer, but you can bake it in the oven as well. Cook per package directions. Cook your bacon in a pan to your desired doneness, I like mine a little bit chewy but to each their own. Remove the bacon from the pan and place cooked bacon on paper towels. Place the pan back on the stove as we will cook our patty using the same pan.

Form your patty, or if you are using a pre-made one, salt and pepper on both sides. Cook the patty to your desired doneness, I prefer med-rare, so about 6 minutes each side. Remove the burger from heat and fry your egg in the same pan. Add extra olive oil if needed.

Toast your buns and now it’s time to build.

Bottom bun + sliced avocado + hashbrown + bacon + burger + cheese + fried egg + top bun

Enjoy for brunch or whenever you want!

Kimchi Burger

As we’ve seen from my recent postings, I’ve been wanting to put Kimchi in just about everything I can. I’m late to the party in being obsessed with it I know. But it’s packed with such good probiotics, and as a girl with gut issues, how can I not love it. I love using burgers as a medium to fuse different cuisines together, it’s the perfect mix of silky egg, and spicy kimchi.

Ingredients

  • 4 Burger Buns
  • 1 LB Ground Beef
  • Romaine Lettuce
  • 4 Eggs, Fried
  • 4 Slices Sharp Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 Cup Kimchi, split amongst the 4 burgers
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Olive Oil

Let’s Get Cooking

To make your burger, grab a slice of cheese and place it in the middle of the ground beef, form the burger around the cheese. Place on a plate once formed and season both sides with salt and pepper.

Cook your burgers to your liking, I go med-rare so about 6/7 minutes each side. While the burgers are cooking, grab a small frying pan and fry up the eggs in a small amount of oil. Once done, remove from the pan and place on a paper towel.

To build the burger start with the bottom bun, lettuce, burger, kimchi, fried egg, then top bun.

Serve with fries or whatever you enjoy.

‘Bleu by You’ Burger

Back with another Bob’s Burgers burger recipe. Who would have thought a cookbook based on a cartoon has some of the best burger recipes around, I WOULD HAVE. I would consider this burger fancy, I mean it involves a red wine reduction so pull out your fancy napkins and dive in.

Ingredients

  • 1 LB Thick-cut Bacon
  • 2 Small Onions, finely chopped
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, chopped
  • 3 TBSP Butter
  • 2 Roma Tomatoes, diced
  • 1 1/2 Cups Red Wine, I like the Dark Horse red blend
  • 1 LB Ground Beef
  • 4 oz Bleu Cheese, diced
  • 1 Bunch Red Swiss Chard, stalks removed & leaves cut into thick ribbons
  • 1 TBSP Olive Oil
  • 4 Buns

Let’s Get Cooking

Cook the bacon on the stove top or in the oven, until crispy

Saute the onions and garlic with 2 TBSP of butter over MED heat. Cook until the onions are translucent.

In the same pan, add in the tomatoes + wine and bring the mixture to a boil. Let it cook down for about 2 minutes, then lower the heat and bring to a simmer. Stir occasionally, and after about 5 minutes stir in the other TBSP of butter. Continue to simmer until the reduction thickens, enough to cover the back of a spoon, about 20 minutes. Pour through a straining into a bowl to remove the solids, set the red wine reduction aside.

Fold in the bleu cheese into the beef and gently form into 4 patties. Press a thumb gently into one side of the patty, creating a small indent. Season both sides with salt + pepper. The cheese may ooze a little so be careful flipping.

Saute the chard leaves with a bit of olive oil over MED heat. Add salt and stir continuously until wilted.

Toast the buns and then it’s time to build:

Bottom Bun – Burger – Bacon – Sautéed Chard – Red Wine Reduction – Top Bun

Serve with fries & enjoy!

“One Horse Open Slaw” Burger

Creative burgers may just be my favorite food trend, although I am not even sure if you could consider it a trend. Burgers are a classic, so why not switch them up a little but! This is a perfect summer burger from the Bob’s Burger Cookbook of course. I hope that you’ll give it a try the next time your craving a burger.

Ingredients

  • 1 Egg Yolk
  • 1/2 TSP Salt
  • 1/2 TSP Yellow Mustard
  • 2 TSP Lemon Juice
  • 1 TBSP Red Wine Vinegar
  • 1 Cup Canola Oil
  • 1/4 Head Red Cabbage, shredded
  • 1/4 Head Green Cabbage, shredded
  • 3 Big Carrots, thinly sliced into matchsticks
  • 2 TBSP Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 LB Ground Beef
  • 4 Slices Jalapeño Havarti Cheese
  • 4 Onion buns, or whatever you have

Let’s Get Cooking

We are going to start with the mayo that goes on the coleslaw!

In a large bowl whisk together egg yolk + salt + mustard. In another bowl mix together lemon juice + vinegar.

Add half of the lemon mixture in with the egg yolk mixture & whisk briskly.

While you’re still whisking, slowly, a few drops at a time, add in the oil. KEEP WHISKING. When the mixture beings to thicken you can add in the oil a little faster. Once half of the oil is whisked in, add the rest of the lemon mixture. KEEP WHISKING. Add the rest of the oil and whisk until the mayo is glossy. It will be a little bit thinner than store-bought mayo but that’s okay! Be proud of yourself, you just made homemade mayo!

To make the coleslaw: slice up the cabbage and carrots.

In a large bowl, place the cabbage + carrots + however much mayo you prefer. I like a thin coat, but that’s all up to you! Add in salt & pepper to taste.

For the burgers:

Mix in the Worcestershire sauce in with the ground beef. Don’t over mix!

Form the burgers into patties and cook them to your desired doneness. I usually do about 6 minutes per side for a med-rare.

Add on the cheese and cover to melt.

Build your burger up staring with bottom bun + cheeseburger + coleslaw + and a top bun!
