The Classic Burger

The Classic Burger

I call it the “Classic” Burger, as it is my default burger when I do not know what kind of burger I feel like.

Lately, I prefer making the patty as a thick smashed burger but you can do as you like. For the lettuce part, you can use whatever you prefer: iceberg, mixed, even some lettuce with beetroot slices.


Ingredients for 2 burgers:
  • 250-300gr of minced beef
  • Half an onion
  • 2 or 4 tomato slices
  • Some lettuce
  • 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise
  • Some ketchup (or any spicy sauce, if you prefer)
  • 4 slices of cheddar
  • Burger buns

Directions:
  1. Thinly dice the onion and mix it with the mayonnaise.
  2. Separate the beef into two patties.
  3. Bring a pan to smoking point (when the oil begins to smoke) on high heat with a little bit of oil.
  4. Cook the patties as you prefer. In my case, I put the patties as balls in the hot pan and then press them down.
  5. When the patties are golden brown (or even better, crispy) on a side, flip them over, add the ketchup on top and a slice of cheddar. Add a teaspoon of water in the pan and cover.
  6. Toast the buns.
  7. When the buns are toasted, the patty golden brown on both sides and the cheese melted, build the burger (from bottom to top):
    1. Bottom bun
    2. Slice of cheddar
    3. Patty (with ketchup and melted cheddar)
    4. Lettuce
    5. Tomato
    6. Onion-mayonnaise mix
    7. Top bun

Enjoy 😉
