Whisky burger

Beef, Hamburger gourmet

Last night I made a whisky burger and there was no mistaking the whisky. Boy did it pack a punch!

I used the Hamburger gourmet book and it stated to use bourbon but as Gav isn’t too fond of that type of whisky I used a really peaty Scottish whisky called Smokehead. It was flipping amazing, really powerful and smoky.

It’s a really straightforward pattie, literally just 125g mince, doused in whisky and shaped. Griddle it for 2 minutes each side and it’s done. It was served in a brioche bun with rocket and a simple cheese sauce (chedder, water, chopped pepper)

A great Saturday night plate of food.

Movie night: slight fail

Food, Foodie, Pork

Movie night came round again and last night we watched “what strangers do in the night” (great film) and had very stereotypical “movie” food.

I went with hotdogs, Chilli dogs to be exact. They are cheap, easy and fitting.

However the last couple of times I have had them I wasn’t keen and sadly last night affirmed these feelings of displeadment. Yuk! Not keen at all, hotdigs shall not be making an appearance in my kitchen for a while!

  
And erm yes, lambrini played its part! It’s a bit of a guilty pleasure! 😉
