One of my favorite burgers from the many burgers of various burger joints is the Mushroom & Swiss Angus Burger from Hardee's aka as Carl's Jr.
I mentioned it before as well and also requested anyone of you to take me to Hardee's but you all are so cold and just want recipes from me like I owe you Rs. 500 or something.
Since I love this burger so much and I hate going out in this weather which is equivalent to fire raining from the skies of hell I, Chef Shamsher (which is not even my real name) decided to take it upon my own hands and tried to make my version of the Mushroom & Swiss.
I think I got somewhat successful and I will name it Mushroom & Cheese Melt Burger.
As far as the side(dish) of this burger goes. I chose to make baked potato wedges.
Just simply topped the potatoes with salt, olive oil, pepper and garlic powder. Baked it on 250 degrees for 30-40 minutes and the result is following.
Enough chitter chatter. Let's start up with the recipe.
Ingredients For Mushroom Sauce:
1 can of sliced mushrooms
2 tablespoons cream
1 cup chicken/beef broth
1 medium small onion finely chopped
1 teaspoon ginger garlic paste
2 tablespoons of butter
Ingredients For Burger Patty:
500 grams minced beef
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
salt as per taste
First and foremost we have to make the burger patty and while we let it rest in the freezer, we'll later on make the sauce.
Add the salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder and egg in the minced beef and mix it well.
Make 2-4 patties according to your own liking.
I had 1 kg minced beef so I made BIG patties BECAUSE I'M A BIG BOY AND BIG BOYS EAT BIG.
Let the patties rest in the freezer for around 20-30 minutes.
Now let's start making the sauce by melting butter into a sauce pan and frying the finely chopped onion.
Add ginger garlic paste and cook the onions till they are properly caramelized.
Add the mushrooms now and fry them for 3-5 minutes.
Sprinkle some salt and pepper on the mushrooms.
Add the broth now and lower the heat and let it cook until the onions and broth mix into make a brown gravy.
Add the cream and cook it for another 2-3 minutes and your sauce is ready to be topped on the burger patty.
Heat grill pan on medium heat and brush it with some olive oil.
Place the patties on it and grill it for 8-10 minutes on each side.
If you want more flavor in your patty you can add a teaspoon of butter to the pan.
On the last minute of the patties on the grill top them with 2 slices of cheese each.
BURGER !!! ASSEMBLE !!!
Put a layer of mustard on the bottom bun and top it with lettuce.
Place the cheese covered patty on the lettuce and top it with the mushroom sauce.
Ladies and gentlemen, a home made burger does not get better than this. Revealing my very own Mushroom & Cheese Melt Burger. MAKE SOME NOISE!!!
