Homemade burgers


Made chicken burgers for dinner last evening. For the patty, I used the following -

Minced chicken - approximately 500g
barbeque sauce
worcestershire sauce
bit of oyster sauce
dash of sesame oil
breadcrumbs - 2-3tbsps
1/2 an onion - diced
1/2 a carrot - shredded
Extra breadcrumbs for coating

Mix the above together and form into patties. Cover with breadcrumbs and fry. The above recipe yielded 5 big patties and 1 small.

Assembled the burger with cheese slice, lettuce, tomato slices, onion rings, egg, and drizzled with mayonnaise.

Happy to say that it was very well-received, even by princess who isn't typically a burger gal. :) But of course hers was only a mini version without an egg. And since I had extra patties leftover, I made them for a friend who was coming by.

A few days back, my cousin was telling me abt E burger tht she ate at Swensens. She said it was BIG and top with a sunny side up egg. It had me drooling for a moment :P I told myself tht I was gonna make a few soon! Upon seeing ur burger, it makes me more enthusiastic. My late aunt makes good patties. She used to add crush creamcrackers to bind 'em :)

ling's passion - Thanks. Ok, will check it out.

paw paw - Hehe, I think most people love oozing egg yolks. ;) And take a big bite, or as my girl will say, 'a humungous' bite! :P

beau lotus - Gee thanks. Hehe. Yes, I totally agree. :)

maya - Oops, beat you to it. ;) Yes, you should make it. I didn't wanna buy cream crackers to do them so I got ready breadcrumbs. I usually get them from Four Leaves but they sold out yesterday so I got from Swissbake. They are lovely too. Do them soon, ya? :P

sue sue - I also never made burger before. Hehe. Bet the kids will love. Healthier too, to make them yourself.

ohfortheloveoffood! - Hey Carol, thanks. :) We're all keeping well.

sweet jasmine - Thanks, and also for the tips with adding cumin and coriander. Will bear that in mind. Definitely healthier, if grilled.

east meets west kitchen - Thankie. :) Breadcrumbs are easy to make lah, just toast some bread and grind hehe. But you're right, it is so convenient to just buy them from the bakery.

big boys oven - Hehe, cheeky.
