We put the meat through the mincer, together with the onion, then the bread crumbs and the carrot. Crush the garlic and add it to the composition, add the Parmesan cheese, oil, breadcrumbs, salt and mix well. Form the burgers.

Put breadcrumbs on a plate and roll them on both sides.

Put the grill on the fire, add a little oil (palm) and place the burgers. We keep them until they are well browned, taking care to turn them on both sides.

We serve them with pickles, french fries, with a little ketchup salad (homemade is ideal) and of course in sesame buns.

Best Hamburgers - Classic, Vegetarian and Vegan Recipes (Review)

Best Hamburgers - Classic, Vegetarian and Vegan Recipes (Review)

Now that Christmas has begun, I thought that - in addition to the fasting recipes you can find on the site (more than 200) - see here - I would also recommend a book from which you can be inspired. And I chose to tell you a little about the book The best burgers published at Casa publishing house, with whom I have been collaborating for some time.

It is a book that contains not only vegan burger recipes but also vegetarian or meat recipes. That is, this book is not only suitable for this time of year or only for people with a certain lifestyle, but for everyone. Specifically for those who like these dishes specific to the category of "fast food".

I admit that I don't really cook burgers, so when I received the book I was very curious to find out more about this dish. It really helped me introduction of the book who explained to me what a hamburger means, what ingredients are used to prepare it, what spices, etc.

What is it about The best burgers

To be clear to you, if you didn't know yet, a hamburger is nothing but a bun cut in half in the middle of which a meatball and a lettuce leaf are placed. Very convenient and fast, I would say. Pretty nutritious at the same time.

The classic hamburger variants obviously contain beef or poultry meatballs and can be eaten quickly, on the go, on the run. Others with more sophisticated ingredients, such as gorgonzola cheese, prawns or seitan, turn the hamburger into a dish you will never find on the street corner.

The classic burger is made from a meatball prepared from beef and grilled, then placed in a special hamburger bun, cut in half. But like meat, you can also use pork, lamb or chicken in a burger. About each of them we find in the book some important details.

What caught my eye, regarding meat, is this advice:

"After shredding, minced meat creates favorable conditions for the development of pathogens. Therefore, meat purchased from the butcher must be refrigerated and processed immediately. If we want to eat it raw, it is best to chop it ourselves, before serving.

And regarding sea ​​fruits, we are told in the book that people allergic to house dust should avoid eating crayfish, because in some cases, after consuming them, allergic reactions can occur. Why? Because "lobsters, crayfish and snails can be carriers of the same allergens as dust mites.

There are, as I said at the beginning, tips and recipes for preparing a vegan / vegetarian burger. The meatballs in a burger can be easily easily replaced with some vegetable meatballs.

Here are the ingredients we can use for a vegan / fasting burger: tofu, seitan, mushrooms, lentils, eggplant, pumpkin, avocado, mango, etc.

Normally a hamburger does not have cheeses in its composition, but many gourmets consider that "a slice of cheese placed between the two halves of the bun puts an end to it".

What other cheeses can be used besides cheese? Ceddar cheese, Chester cheese, Gorgonzola.

The taste of a hamburger, be it classic, vegan or vegetarian is complete if you add, in addition to the basic ingredients and vegetables, sauces or salads.

sauces like mayonnaise or ketchup or juicy dip (milk-based sauces), salad, tomatoes or layered cucumbers, at the last moment before serving, can give the hamburger an unforgettable taste.

And also from the introduction of the book we find many details about the buns that are used for burgers. And not only details we will find out, but also two recipes, one of simple bun and one of sophisticated bun, with the specification that vegan buns can also be made, if the egg for spreading is replaced with a mixture of soy cream and a tablespoon of water.

Now let me tell you what recipes caught my attention in the book:

  • vegan recipes - hamburger with tofu and avocado cream and the one with mushrooms and spinach
  • Meat recipes - mini burgers with Gorgonzola and turkey with cheese sauce
  • fish recipes - simple fish burger and grilled salmon burger
  • special recipes for gourmets - bacon burger and kebab burger.

The last chapters of the book are dedicated sauces and seals and we can learn, among other things, how to make chips from cabbage or coleslaw salad with pineapple. You can also find the dietary version of the classic Coleslaw salad on the blog (here), except that I didn't try it as it is in the book, in the version with pineapple. I really want to try something like that because I find it an interesting idea.

A recipe from the book The best burgers

And now, because my friends from Casa Publishing House they allowed me, I'll leave you a recipe from the book below. Because we are fasting, we chose the one of "Vegan burger with tofu and avocado cream

Homemade Burger Ingredients

  • 1 kilogram of beef (preferably from the withers, which has the ideal proportion of fat)
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 2-3 tablespoons of TABASCO ® Chipotle red pepper sauce
  • 200 grams of barbecue sauce (click on the link for the recipe or use a premium quality product from the market)
  • 100 grams of sos tartar (click on the recipe link, you can also use plain or spicy mayonnaise as you like or another sauce, as you prefer)
  • 5 fresh and soft buns
  • 5 lettuce leaves
  • 5-10 slices of onion
  • slices of fresh and fleshy tomatoes
  • other toppings to taste, I used crispy fried onions
  • optional: slices of cheese, fried bacon, etc

How to prepare Homemade burger - the meat mix and the formation of burgers

1. I passed the meat through the mincer twice, first through a larger sieve and then through a smaller sieve. I did not have a piece of withers, so I combined 400 grams of back with 600 grams of beef, the latter being slightly fatter than the desired proportion, maybe with a little more than 25% fat. The combination was only good, I mixed the two types of meat and finally the composition showed as seen below. If the meat has warmed up a bit, let it cool before shaping.

2. The next step was to model the burgers. For a start, I divided the meat evenly, in portions of 200 grams each, then I shaped discs with a diameter of about 11 cm and a thickness of 3.5 cm. Do not put too much pressure on the meat, just as much as it needs to be shaped. I arranged the shaped burgers on a flat surface, wrapped them and refrigerated them for 1 hour.

Homemade burger, sauce preparation - spicy icing

3. While the burgers rested in the cold, I seasoned the barbecue sauce, which will be at the same time the icing of the burgers. The barbecue sauce can be prepared at home, I do so and I never miss a few jars from the pantry. I do it after the recipe here and it comes out really delicious. This time, however, we went further and added TABASCO ® Chipotle red pepper sauce, which not only made it more spicy, but also added a delicious smoky touch, from the smoked chipotle peppers with which it is prepared.

4. Simply mix the TABASCO ® Chipotle red pepper sauce in the barbecue sauce, gradually adding it and tasting it, so that it comes out as spicy as we want.

How to prepare Homemade burger - seasoning and cooking

5. Before we actually start cooking the burgers, an operation that will not take too long, it is good to have the toppings ready, for the most part. For example, I took advantage of the refrigeration time to cut julienne into two medium-sized onions. I then sprinkled them with salt, rolled them in flour and fried them in an oil bath. When the onion became crispy, I took it out on paper towels. I didn't say I ate a regular burger, by the way! The salad leaves are carefully chosen, washed and dried, the tomatoes and onions are sliced, the buns are cut transversely in two, etc.

6. I took the burgers out of the fridge, then I started the fire on the grill. On top of each burger, I applied a little pressure, right in the middle, forming a hollow. I found out this little secret from a video tutorial on Youtube and it's really useful. It helps the burger to keep its shape during frying.

7. Grease the burgers with a little oil and season generously with salt and pepper, only on the side with the hollow. If you want, you can add other spices.

8. On the hot grill, place the burgers with the seasoned side down. Immediately, season the opposite side, while already sizzling on the grill.

9. There is no attempt to return the burger earlier than 4-5 minutes from the moment I put it on the grill! Trying to turn it around, we will only be able to break it. After 4-5 minutes, the burgers made a nice crust on the side directly exposed to heat. Then we turn them carefully, using a wide spatula. On the already cooked side, apply with a special kitchen brush the glaze prepared in point 4. We put generously, it will bring nothing but taste.

Laterally, on the grill, we can lightly fry the cut buns (on the side with the core). The burgers cook for a total of 8-10 minutes, for a medium-rare degree of cooking, which means an intense and very juicy pink interior. If you want them more penetrating, you can keep them on the grill, on a lower heat, for another 2-4 minutes.

Homemade burger - assembly and serving

10. After cooking, burgers need a rest time of 4-5 minutes. I usually offer them as a "pillow" even the bun in which they are to be assembled. Thus, the delicious juices from the bugger will end up in the bun.

11. Finally, I assembled the burger in order: the bun base, 1 tablespoon barbecue sauce, lettuce, burger, onion and tomatoes, 1 tablespoon tartar sauce and crispy onion topping. I recommend you to be creative with the toppings. Avocado slices sprinkled with lemon sauce, various cheeses can all add flavor to burgers. And not only that, but also a personal note, which will make you proud that you created your own burger.

To be useful, I hope you try the recipe and the sensational buns!
