Doughnut Burger (Luther Burger) : Recipe

Unfortunately at the time of making this the shops near me didn’t have any normal glazed donuts so I just opted for this one instead.

A Luther Burger, or doughnut burger (among several naming variations), is a hamburger or cheeseburger with one or more glazed doughnuts in place of the bun.

YIELDΒ 2 burgers

INGREDIENTS

For The Burger

  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • Ground Beef (80% lean)
  • 1 Egg

Topping

  • 6 slices quality smokey bacon
  • 4 slices of cheddar cheese
  • 2 glazed donuts

Extras for Candied Bacon

  • Maple syrup
  • Brown sugar

INSTRUCTIONS

Burger

  1. In a bowl add the Worcestershire sauce, garlic salt and pepper in a large bowl and gently mix for 10 seconds
  2. Now add the mince and mix for 60 seconds
  3. Break an egg in to the bowl as this is your binding issue and mix well
  4. Let the mince sit for around 5 minutes
  5. Form your hamburger patties.
  6. Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  7. Add the burgers and cook until desired temperature, 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium-rare.

Candied Bacon

Its up to you if you want to make sweet bacon, normal bacon tastes just as good with this

  1. Fry bacon in a hot pan until crisp. Remove and drain on paper towels. Set aside.
  2. Combine the maple syrup, and brown sugar in a small bowl and set aside.
  3. Return bacon to the skillet, brush with the glaze, and turn. Cook glazed side down for 2 minutes over low heat. Glaze, turn, and cook for an additional 2 minutes over low heat.
  4. Repeat until all of the glaze is used and serve immediately.

The Donuts

  1. Cut the donuts in half and lightly butter the cut sides
  2. Place the cut sides down on a very warm frying pan and keep until slightly crispy 

End Product

I added some cheddar at the bottom just to be different πŸ™‚
  1. Place burger patties on glazed donuts, as the buns.
  2. Top each burger with bacon and two slices of cheese

Enjoy

Double Chocolate Mousse Pots – Recipe

I recently got gifted some chocolate pots from Pots & Co, and I kept the containers as they were very good and super reusable.

I decided to try and make my own chocolate pot, as I made this a few years ago from a recipe I found on the internet and changed it to suit my taste πŸ™‚

Its not as good as their pots but its still mega moreish πŸ™‚

Ingredients

  • 25Β g white chocolate (for the topping)
  • 50Β g dark chocolate (70%)
  • 4Β large egg whites
  • 2Β tbsp caster sugar

If you are not a fan of the 70% dark chocolate, feel free to go for something a bit lighter.

Instructions

Topping

Make chocolate curls with the white chocolate by running a swivel peeler over the surface.

Or just grate some into anyway you like, as you are just going to use this to sprinkle over the top….its more a presentation thing really.

When you have enough to sprinkle set these aside in the fridge.

The Mousse :

  1. Melt the dark chocolate in a bowl over simmering water or in the microwave on Medium for 11/2-2 mins. Leave to cool slightly.
  2. Whisk the egg whites until stiff, then whisk in the sugar.
  3. Fold in the melted chocolate
  4. Divide between 4 small dishes or cups, about 100ml in size.
  5. Leave to set for a few hours before serving. I leave mine for around 3-5 hours
  6. Sprinkle over the white chocolate curls once ready to serve.

Enjoy and let me know how you get on πŸ™‚
