I have never been into Take Away food,so have always made any burgers at home where I am in control of exactly what goes into them!! I have made Lentil burgers,chicken burgers,fish burgers and of course Beef burgers! I love that when I am making them myself,I can add avocado,cheese, coleslaw,potato salad,or just a basic lettuce ,tomato,and whatever sauce takes my fancy.I also like to use all different varieties of buns
I've never really been into take away burgers. I used to get the occasional one, but not often. Now that I have coeliac disease most take away is off the menu. We (well...I get my partner too!) make our own gluten free rissoles at home and use them as burgers with gluten free bread. Although I'll often not even bother with the toast / bun.
When I make them myself I eliminate all this! I take most of the actual bread out of the bun and am left with a much thinner crust where the food fits nicely into. I can also vary what I put in the burger part of it as there is no meat if not using chicken.
I wouldn't bother making them or buying them but living with a chef makes them all kinds of amazing so sometimes I do bug him to make some. He makes the most amazing burgers, all healthy, often home grown salad too. MmmMmMm This question is making me HUNGRY!
I love hamburgers, both the takeaway kind and the homemade kind. Homemade is better because you can make it exactly how you want though. My favourite kinds at the moment are a beef pattie with cheese, lettuce, beetroot and tomato sauce, or a 'burger benedict' which is like eggs benedict but a burger (burger pattie, bacon, poached egg and hollandaise sauce). A burger with a fresh piece of fish and some coleslaw on it is great too.
I like homemade burgers but haven't made one in ages. I think we might be having homemade burgers for tea. I find it a good way to get salad vegies into youngsters. You can do so many variations to suit your taste and mood. I don't like burgers from franchise places but sometimes you get a nice one at a cafe.
Home made is with fresh Hamburger Bun, either Toasted or Plain, dependent on my mood!, fresh Topside A-grade Mince pattie,
I make myself with Grated Carrot, Grated Cheese, Thinly sliced fresh Mushrooms, very finely diced Brown Onion, Parsley, drops of Tabasco, Soya & Worcestershire sauces, Italian Seasoning, & one egg to bind ALL ingredients.
Once cooked, & on Bun, top with BBQ Sauce, & add whatever I feel like at time eg Sliced Tomato, Beetroot, freshest of finely chopped Lettuce. Most times don't add anything!
