For Dinner last night we made bacon burgers. I used a mixture of ground pork and ground beef to make them. Everyone loved eating them, I am sure to make this again sometime. I even made some amazing extra condiments that made my burger farm fresh and yummy.
First I cooked some strips of bacon until it was nice and crispy, then diced it up. I was also defrosting the meat on the counter. Then I took the rest of the bacon and sliced some onion and diced some mushroom and caramelized it with some sugar until the onions were golden brown. I drained it and set it into a dish for a condiment.
I have some finished pictures here of the diced bacon and the onion mix.
I also got an idea from an online recipe to make a sort of slaw with the chard I had. I used 1 part vegan mayo to 1 part mustard and a dash of sweet relish in a bowl with diced chard leaves from the food bank. It tasted really good. I had some on one side of my burger with the candied bacon-onion mix on top and it was really good.
I made the burgers by mixing the ground beef, ground pork and diced bacon together. I also added some salt pepper and a dash of marjoram. I cooked them in the skillet with the bacon fat from the onion mix and only had to turn them over once. They were really juicy yummy burgers.
I also made some fries on the side, actually the whole meal was planned around french fries. I asked my son yesterday morning what he wanted to have for dinner and he said “ if you have potatoes I want fries.” At least he loves them homemade. I sliced my mini potatoes from the food bank really thin and fried them golden then covered in salt. I also served some homemade pickles with the meal.
Here are a few pictures of my plate. I even managed to get my husband to take a glamour shot that does the cooking justice.
