Burgerlicious Patty

burgers, carmel, IKEA, recipe, Wagyu,
I don't need McDonald's Doubles. Carmel makes thick, satisfying Burgerlicious Patty with double wagyu beef patties, cheese and bacon that keeps the hungry worms in me quiet for 12 hours. And its probably one of the easiest meals that I have made for weekends when pals come over for BBQ, movies or car talk. Its also something different from our regular steak nights.


Ingredients (serves 4):
• Burger buns (I would have loved to make my own if time permitted)
• 400g beef (I opted for wagyu so I could have my burgers tender and juicy)
• 50g bacon for patties
• 50g bacon for layering
• Cheese (I am using aged cheddar cheese) 
• 6 garlic bulbs (I prefer smoked garlic)
• Choice of herbs (we use dry rosemary, parsley and basil)
• 1 teaspoon of chilli flakes (optional)
• Black pepper to taste (optional)
• 2 eggs
• Butter for bread
• Mustard (we prefer Dijon)

Instructions:
• Mince beef with bacon. Add in garlic, herbs, spices and chilli flakes. Add 2 eggs so that the patties stick together.

• Shape patties approximately 3/4" thick (a matter of preference).

• Fry bacon.
• Cook patties with the bacon fat 2 minutes on each on medium heat. Add oil if you don't have enough bacon fat. Use a turner to flip so that the patty does not break or crumb. I like the ones from Ikea which has a wooden handle.

Burgerlicious Patty is wholesome unlike most burgers served outside. Initially I intended to top it with a sunny side up but I realised that I have been eating too much eggs for the past week plus a 4" high burger is big enough. Adding an egg is merely going to make it even tougher for me to take a bite:P Although I would have relished the runny egg all over my juicy burger. 

Someone commented on my Facebook page that it was such a waste of the wagyu being used for beef burger. Well, I don't think so. A wagyu beef burger for a refreshing change is fun and good. Not sure what your thoughts are...but at least the humans (and my wormies) at Carmel were happy with Saturday's movie dinner.

The turner that I am referring to above is available at Ikea. Love the beech handle that comes in handy when I have to cook for prolonged hours.
