Smashed flambeéd Game Burger
Allowedly: the pattie is probably the only healthy thing involved in this burger. And I have to caution the reader: you’ll be addicted to this masterpiece!
It all starts with the preparation which is a joy for itsself. The smell of cheese and Whisky (which will be flambeéd), the sight of your BBQ-place and the knowledge that your pattie was earned outdoors – all I need to be happy!
Ingerdients for the Burger:
- Game minced meat
- Rocket salad
- Red Onions
For the cheese sauce:
- White wine
The cheese sauce can either be prepared on the grill or back at home. Roast some hacked garlic in heat-resistant oil before deglazing the lot with white wine. Add a sip of milk, then cheaddar and gouda until you get a nice, viscid sauce. Season with Tabasco. Now flavor the minced meat with pepper and form proper patties. I usaully use a BBQ-board to grill the patties, where one can gently smash the patties to give them additional taste. Then comes the exciting part: Flambeé the patties with a hearty sip of whisky! The bacon be jolleyed and grilled till it’s crisp. Cut the burger buns in a half, toast them with some butter or with the fat of your bacon until the insides are golden. Before that, use a shot glas and punch the top half so that you get a hole in the bun.
Now we need to build the whole thing together: put some rocket on the lower bun, add some onion rings and BBQ-Sauce. Then mount the bun with the hole in it, arrange your bacon twisters in that hole and fill the whole construction with as much cheese sauce as you want!
