Friday night, time for comfy fast food!
Tonight we will go for BURGERS! Yay! Love them! But pay attention, it’s not just any burger.
Here we make our own, it’s tastier and way bigger than most of the burgers in town.
We add a few personal touches to make it special and even more yummy.
It’s probably the simplest thing to make, but this is Kev’s recipe, and believe me, he knows what he is doing.
HOMEMADE BURGERS (2 servings)
1/2 kilo of mince meat
1/2 cup of flour
fresh mixed herbs (to taste)
1 tbsp of salt
1 tbsp of pepper (optional)
2 burger buns
4 soup spoons of mayonnaise
2 lettuce leaves (or more if you like your green)
half tomato, sliced
2 fried eggs
2 slices of cheese (whatever type you prefer)
Put the mince meat in a bowl, add the egg and mix it, add the flour and the parsley. Mix it.
Make two balls with the dough and flat them until they are 3 cm thick.
Put in the grill or frying pan until it is brown and cooked throughout.
Now, assemble the burger, in anyway you want. Kev’s way is bottom bun, mayonnaise, a slice of tomato, the burger, the egg, the cheese, the lettuce, mayonnaise again and the top bun.
While Kev was busy with making the burgers, I got myself busy with doing a nice vodka caipirinha.
Just to add that special Friday night chill-out feeling to our meal.
VODKA CAIPIRINHA (for 2)
200 ml of vodka (a good one please, we use Smirnoff Vodka)
5 spoons of sugar
4 cubes of ice
Cut the limes, in circles, put in a cocktail shaker, or just in a glass.
Press the limes a bit, add the sugar, press a little bit more, add the ice, and then the vodka.
Mix it, shake it, and put in a nice glass. And sit back and enjoy it, before, after or while eating the burgers.
Goes well with a nice movie or simply with a fun boardgame, and some music.
After all it is Friday Night!
