I never EVER make burgers. Yet so inspired by Jamie Oliver's 15 Minute Meals over the weekend, I wanted to try a burger. Into the meat I tossed:
- crushed red pepper
- black pepper
- Vermont Maple Mustard (from Fox Meadow Farms)
- Japanese style Panko seasoned breadcrumbs
The pan was turned on Medium-Low and the burgers cooked for just about 8 minutes on each side, crisping the outside a deep brown and leaving the inside just a teeny bit pink. I threw freshly shaved American cheese on the top for a few minutes at the end, then took them off the heat, covered the pan and let them sit for a few minutes.
Burgers included: fresh pickles, tomato slices and garlic cooked kale.
The burgers were incredibly flavorful - quite unexpectedly so! I'M A BOSS BURGER COOKER!
