Just as much as I unlike fast food burgers I love home made once!! It’s like day and nigh and they really shouldn’t be categorized in the same food category if you ask me. Yeah, it might be a dare statement, but that’s exactly how I feel. Making a really delicious, juicy and flavorful home made burger is so easy and only takes a few minutes to prepare. And the best thing – you can top it with so many different delicious, tasty and wonderful toppings that can’t compare to the once you get at a fast food place! And you don’t have to eat those greasy, dry burgers that are dripping in a mayonnaise dressing just to get them to taste something and to cover up the bad meat quality. This burger is a delicious, juicy yet fresh and not overwhelming once. The beef burgers are made with just a few ingredients, because you really don’t need much seasoning if you’re using good quality meat. They are served with a delicious, creamy and flavorful goat cheese cream and home made spicy plum chutney. These burgers are perfect to serve for both brunch, lunch or dinner and will be both satisfying, taste yet not greasy and overwhelming.
A few tips:
- Use good quality meat when making the burgers. That is Key! Don’t buy the cheap minced meat, instead go for a good quality once. It might cost a little bit more, but it actually isn’t that much more expensive.
- When making the beef burgers make sure to combine the meat well, but do Not over mix it kneed it. Then it will become too dense and the burgers will turn out dry. Just mix until combined and then form equally sized patties. But don’t squeeze them too light, then again, they will become too dense and dry.
- Fry them for 3-5 minutes depending on how raw you prefer your burgers. But I would recommend you not to fry them for too long, and leave them at least a little pink on the inside. That will keep them very juicy and more flavorful than the once that are fully cooked through.
- You can adapt the amount of Creme Fraiche/plain yogurt when making the goat cheese cream depending on how thick you prefer the cream and how intense goat cheese flavor you like.
- I would recommend you to prepare the plum chutney in advance just because the burgers only take a few minute to prepare. But you can of course cook it at the same time as you start to prepare the burgers. The chutney takes about 30 minutes to get ready.
