We have a great idea for an alternative supper, with a recipe from Klubogaleria Bunkier! The WafloBurger is a brave variation on the classic American burger, served between two pieces of vanilla Belgian waffle!

Ingredients (4 portions)

For the burger:

  • 600 g minced beef meat,
  • salt, pepper and other favourite spices for meat.
  • For the Belgian waffles (waffle iron required, preferably a round one):
  • 160 g wheat flour,
  • 16 g powdered sugar,
  • 5 g baking powder,
  • 2.5 g baking soda,
  • a pinch of salt,
  • 300 g buttermilk,
  • 45 g melted butter,
  • 1 egg,
  • a few drops of vanilla extract.

For the additional filling:

  • a fresh tomato,
  • a red onion,
  • a pickled cucumber,
  • a curly lettuce,
  • ketchup, mustard.

Preparation

1) Mix the minced beef with the salt, pepper and other spices, then form into 8 small burgers.

2) Mix the dry ingredients for the Belgian waffles in a bowl: flour, powdered sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt (you can also use a sieve for the flour and other ingredients). Mix well using a whisk.

3) Mix the wet ingredients in a separate bowl: buttermilk, melted butter, vanilla extract, and the yolk of one egg. Combine the wet ingredients into the dry ones, to form a dough.

4) Take another bowl, and beat the egg white until it is stiff. Add to the dough, and mix carefully.

5) Slice the vegetables, including several lettuce leaves.

6) Grill or fry the burgers for around 6 minutes, turning them over halfway through. The exact time needed to fry or grill them depends on how well done the meat should be!

7) At the same time, grill the Belgian waffles according to the recommendations that come with the waffle iron. We want waffles that are crispy on the outside and fluffy inside.

8) Slice the waffles to make the top and the bottom for the burger. Add the sauces to the top part, while on the bottom part place the filling in the following order: lettuce, burger, slices of tomato, and a few onion rings. Put the top on the burger, and finish it off with a slice of cucumber. Pierce through with a shashlik stick.

Bon appétit! A burger tastes best with a good pale beer!
