Alright. My first homeburg, cos I love Foxhat and wanted a shot at any prize they're handing out.
What: The birds and the bees
Had to give this a go, Feel like it fits the criteria just about right! Honey pairs off with the blue cheese and the turkey. Threw the bacon in there because why not, also the added saltiness balanced out all the sweetness going on.
Don't knock it till you try it. Pretty happy with the results. Please excuse me while I deal with the diabetes.
Spectacular burger managed to dribble gravy all the way to the elbows and the potato scallop added great crunch.
So as a newbie and big time beginner at making homeburgs everything i do is very very experimental as ive never been much of a cook. But I'm really enjoying having fun trying new things ontop of my love of eating these burgs I call this experiment the "triple tuff truff"
Chicken Thighs marinated in Buttermilk for 12 hours. Thighs dredged in Spiced and seasoned flour (Salt, White Pepper, Cayenne pepper, paprika, onion, garlic, dried Oregano, Sage, Basil, Marjoram). Thighs then dredged in egg wash and coated in Crushed original Dorito corn chips before being deep fried.
Lime Avocado & Smokey Chipotle both made from egg yolks, garlic, grapeseed oil and salt. Avocado added with lime juice and smoked paprika, homegrown and dried Chipotle powder and lemon juice .
Mexican Queso sauce made with butter, garlic and onions sauté, spices added (onion, garlic powder, Chipotle powder). Shredded Colby and Mozzarella coated in cornflour added along with diced tomato and evaporated milk and whisked until completely combined and silky.
Dark Chocolate Mole with Black Beans, spices (cumin, onion powder, garlic powder, Chipotle powder, Oregano, cayenne pepper, pepper) fried with garlic and onion then soaked black beans added. Tomato paste and water added. Chopped dark chocolate added, whisked until melted, lime juice and salt added to taste.
Not bad if i do say myself
Ok so as the experimenting continues trying to make something weird that actually works ive done my own take on "Nannas Sunday Dinner" burger.
Homeburg cos eff paying 20+ bucks for a burger. Cheeseburger hold the bun with a side of tortilla chips please and thankyou.
It's a must try. I will be looking to make this a regular of my homeburger creation and will be on the menu when i get this catering business going
The picture doesn't do it that much wonders but the flavour was spot on.
Added chilli, basil, oyster sauce and soy sauce to the mince pan fried in truffle infused olive oil
I think this is my best attempt yet. Cooked up 5kgs of the pulled pork over the weekend and just had to add it to a burger! It provided the sauce, a Blame Canada-esque sweetness, and goes perfect with the tangy slaw. The patties were juicy, fresh and delicious as always (and at $2 each what's not to love?!)
Purely an experiment, however thankfully it turned out pretty decent! When I was putting it together I was worried it would be way too sweet, however it ended up really well balanced.
The chicken soaked in buttermilk all day while I was at work then was dusted in a mixture of flour, S&P, smoked paprika and garlic powder. Another coating in the buttermilk then it was coated in a peanut and panko mix. This is the first time I've tried doing fried chicken, inspired by our recent trip to Chicken & Sons, and it turned out really well. The outside was nice and crunchy and the buttermilk kept the meat really juicy.
The banana fritters added an interesting twist and the texture contrasted well with the crunchiness of the chicken. The chilli salted caramel sauce finished it off nicely, however it could've done with more chilli
The Bob & Pete's milk bun held together really well and was soft and fluffy. The large milk buns are a good size too.
So yeah, it was a weird experiment which I think turned out to be a success! Cheers fatties.
