Everybody loves their burger. This is my take on a home-made burger. It is simple and delicious, and makes for a nice comfort meal. This recipe has been inspired by a Japanese chef/blogger and I have modified his recipe a little bit. You may find his blog here:http://www.masa.tw/
The golden proportion of lean and fat meat that I have been told is 7:3. This ratio will result in the most perfect, juicy and succulent burger. I use lamb mince as the fat cut because it has a high fat content. You may also substitute it with another fat cut. I put a small piece of mozzarella cheese inside the burger to create a secret surprise when they are bitten into! I love cheese in almost any food! My choices of veggie toppings are just the classic: tomato, lettuce, onion, cheese and most importantly, a sunny sided up with a melted yolk on top of the burger! A melted yolk with a burger is absolutely divine!
Finely dice the onion and stir fry it until it slightly turns brown. Set aside and leave it to cool.
Mix the beef, lamb mince and salt and keep mixing it until it becomes sticky.
Mix the milk and breadcrumb separately in another bowl.
Add the milk and breadcrumb mixture, egg, pepper, Worchester sauce, mustard and onion with the meat mince. Mix them well.
Divide the mixture into four portion equally.
Take one portion and pat it between two hands 10 times. Put one(or two!) dice of mozzarella in the center and cover it. Flatten and mould it into rounded shape.
Add the oil on the grill pan, grill it on both sides to seal it.
Preheat the oven and bake it for 180 C for 6-8 minutes depending on how you like them. Alternatively, u may turn to medium heat and leave it on the grill pan and grill it for 6-7 minutes for each side. Again, depending on how you like them!
Add any veggies toppings and sauces that u may like with the burger bun! I personally like to add a sunny side up on top of the burger meat! The egg yolk would melt on the burger meat, Gorgeous!
