Do you ever make something and think to yourself, "Why didn't I write down what I used?" Yeah, that's me almost every night.. Hubby is pleased as well as I, but then I realize.. I didn't write anything down. So last night I made chicken burgers. I was craving a nice juicy cheeseburger with McDonald's Big Mac Sauce.. That stuff is magic right there. So I rummaged through the pantry and fridge to see if I could somehow make what I was craving. Thankfully we had enough on hand to make Chicken Burgers..
Since I didn't write down the exact measurements I can at least tell you what went into these burgers.. and I will be making them again soon, but this time I'll be sure to have a pen and paper. I think I learned this way of cooking from my Grandma. She was famous for "Add a little of this a little of that" No measurements. Her food was incredible.. Grandma knew best - "You don't know by measuring, you know by tasting!"
1lb 99%FF Ground Chicken
Italian bread crumbs
1 Onion, chopped
Garlic Salt - Season Salt - Peppercorn Medley
Mix together and form into patties. Pan fry 3 minutes each side and then finish in a 375 degree preheated oven until internal temperature reaches 165. Finish off with a slice of american cheese, or cheddar.
Then I topped it with a sauce that was pretty darn close to the Big Mac Sauce..
Almost Big Mac Sauce
1 Kosher Dill Pickle, chopped
Mustard (small amount)
Ketchup (medium amount)
Splash of White Vinegar
Pinch of Onion and Garlic Powder
Mix all and chill in the refrigerator until use.
I put my burger on top of a bed of chopped romaine, sliced tomatoes, topped with the sauce, and some delicious coleslaw on the side.. I enjoyed :)
