Here’s the recipe, well at least whatever I can come up with.
* The patty
* This patty was store bought, but I typically do ground beef with some cayenne pepper, bread crumbs (for texture), and taco bell sauce (just a little bit) – I’m not sure about portions because I guesstimate it every time
* For vegetarians, I prefer a potato based patty. Boil them (microwave works too), peal it, add seasoning (I do salt, pepper, chilli pepper, tamarind (just a dash). Then I mix in some peas and shredded carrots. Form into patty shape cook as though its a burger, just not as long. (For better ideas on this, I basically just do an Aloo Tikki Patty, its an indian snack).
a. start cooking the patty at a slow slow rate to cook it all teh way though, I season with garlic powder and this 1 all spice thing I bought on top
1. start sautéing the mushrooms, butter, some minced garlic, at a medium
2. start caramelizing the onions, long strips if you want to have them be photogenic, butter, at a medium
3. Bacon, start the bacon just as the mushrooms are starting to shrink
4. Start a sunny side up egg, I use a good amount of pepper on this because its awesome
5. Get out some cheese, shredded cheese works best if you want differing textures
6. If the onions were cut small, just mix them with the mushrooms to make one awesome layer
7. Cut your avocados to slices in the meanwhile, 1/2 per burger, and use a half lime for those slices
You’ll also need:
* Chipotle Aloi or Pesto
Put your stove top on the lowest setting, get two buns out add some butter and put them down making sure to get butter on all sides of both buns. Let them cook for a while until the insides of each starts browning, then flip them. Put the cheese on the bottom slice. The bacon should be down about now so fold two peaces and put it on. Then place the patty on. If not done correctly, the patty can crumble, I mess this up sometimes. Slice of lettuce, greener the better. Mushrooms next. Onions next. Avocado’s following. Egg as a finishing touch. Chipotle Aloi Sauce on the top bun (if you want, this is sometimes a hit or miss, I like it more, but pesto is more generally preferred by people I’ve served it to). For most wow factor, serve this with the top bun on the side.
Dice two potatoes. Toss in a mixing bowl. Olive oil, pepper, garlic power, salt. Be generous. Place on oven sheet, cook at 500*F for 20 minutes on the bottom shelve. Move to the top shelve and cook for an additional 5-10 minutes based on your preference for how crispy it is. Use spatula to get it off of your tray. Serve with chipotle aloi.
Same can be obtained with sweet potatoes but it takes considerably longer to cook
