Stuffed big burger
Baked, juicy and filled with cheese, bacon bits and hot chili peppers 😋
500 g minced meat (I used beef)
2 tbsp olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped
100 ml of water
Seasoning: 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tsp pepper, 1 tsp hot chili powder
Few slices of cheddar
Diced smoked bacon
Diced hot chili pepper, jalapeno or bell pepper
On a stove, medium flame, heat 2 tbsp olive oil and fry the onions until translucent. Add the garlic and fry for 1-2 minutes. Add 100 ml of water and boil everything for about 3 minutes.
Put the raw minced meat in a big bowl, stir in the seasoning and then pour in the water with onions and garlic. Leave the meat to rest for at least 10 minutes.
Prepare 3 pieces of parchment paper. Place one half of the meat mixture on 1 piece of parchment paper, cover it with another paper and press with your hands or a heavy pan to form a thin patty.
Set the patty aside with the bottom parchment paper and repeat the step with the other 1/2 of the meat.
Cover one patty with cheese (cheddar, mozzarella), diced bacon and diced fresh peppers. Once toped, cover with the other patty and close the ends well.
Place the burger, with the bottom parchment paper, in the baking tin and bake on 180°c for about 30-35 minutes, you can optionaly turn it after 15 minutes.
