There's a National Burger Day I had no idea about till earlier this week! So while the pubs and cafes and restaurants and burger joints were fighting it out for hungry customers, we decided to make our own. Here's my mushroom burger recipe :)

New potatoes - 8 to 10 medium sized

Spring onions - 4 to 5 stalks, chopped fine

Mozzarella - 125 gm

Cheddar cheese - 100 gm, grated

Salt & pepper

Egg - 1, beaten

Burger buns or soft white baps - 4

Oil to shallow fry

What you do

  • Heat oil in a frying pan, to shallow fry
  • When the oil is hot, dip a patty in the beaten egg, coating both sides, and then coat evenly with breadcrumbs
  • Place in the frying pan immediately
  • Do the same for the remaining patties
  • Shallow fry till both sides are brown and crisp
  • When you flip the patties over, that's when you start prepping your burger buns
  • Slice the buns in half and arrange face up on a large baking tray
  • Slice the mozzarella and place on all the buns
  • Grill at around 225 degrees celcius till the cheese has melted and begun to brown
  • To serve, arrange salad leaves on the bun bottom, place a mushroom patty on top, add a dollop of mayonnaise (mustard/ ketchup/ chilli sauce / spicy salsa maybe?), some more salad leaves, and then your bun top!

Open mouth wide, and chomp! :)
