(Norsk versjon: Kjempegode og enkle hjemmelagde burgere )
The best, tastiest and juiciest burger patties are best made in your own kitchen! It’s not hard! Try these, and I guarantee you will never serve store bought patties ever again!
Recipe, 6 hamburger patties:
- 600 grams minced meat
- 100 gram bacon, finely chopped
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
Put it all in a bowl and mix well with an electric mixer. Divide into six and form patties with your hands – and then grill them.
How about homemade hamburger buns?
Makes 12 hamburger buns (or 15 hotdog buns)
- 3 deciliter milk, luke warm
- 1 teaspoon honey
- 2-3 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 teaspoons dry yeast
- 450 gram plain flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg, for brushing
- Sesame seeds, optional (or any other seed that tickles your fancy)
Put the luke warm milk, honey, olive oil, yeast, flour and salt in a baking bowl and combine thoroughly. Knead until smooth and elastic, about 3-5 minutes. Cover and let rise until doubled in size.
Divide dough into 12 pieces (15 if you are doing hotdog buns), shape into balls and push them flat. Cover and let rest and rise for 15-20 minutes.
Brush with a beaten egg and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
Bake on the middle rack of the oven at 225 degrees C for 10-15 minutes, until golden and beautiful.
Top it all up with your own homemade BBQ sauce:
To die for BBQ sauce:
- 3 deciliter brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 1 tablespoon ground black pepper
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 2 teaspoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon coriander
- 1/4 teaspoon ginger powder
- 2 dl apple cider vinegar 5%
- 1 1/2 deciliter honey
- 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 1 liter ketchup
- Apple juice to taste (I use a lot of apple juice, 2-3 deciliter.)
Mix brown sugar and all the dry ingredients in a deep pan. Stir in the vinegar, honey, Worcestershire sauce and mustard. Mix well over low heat.
Add the ketchup and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Stir frequently. Add apple juice to taste.
This is a large recipe, and the sauce keeps well in the refrigerator for a couple of weeks. Or you can freeze it.
