I see and hear a lot of people fumbling when it comes to cooking for others. There’s a lot of reasons why people struggle with this, but my Oopsie Burger will both feed, and impress, whoever you are entertaining.
It’s keto friendly, like everything else here, and so tasty, and the bread is good enough to convince others that it may even have wheat in it!
These are roughly the ingredients you’ll need to conquer the beast
Straight up, separate egg whites from the yolks. Mix 1/4 teaspoon, as a maximum, of cream of tartar, and using an electric beater, mix them for at least five minutes. Make sure that when you’re beating the egg whites to use a small container, or they wont whip up in the right way.
Take your six yolks, and 180g of cream cheese, and beat until 90% of the lumps are gone from the mixture.
When you have both a lovely, foamy bowl of whites, and smooth mixed yolk and cream cheese, combine them, and fold them into one another, preserving as much of the air that you can
To make them into buns, use a springform pan, line the bottom, side optional, with baking paper, and pour in the mixture.
Pour half the mixture in at a time, and bake this at 150ºC for at least 20 minutes, or until it browns slightly. This is how it looks when it’s done.
As for the patty you will need 1kg of beef mince. Mix this with a clove or two of garlic, some olive oil, and mixed herbs. Knead the additions through in a big bowl
When you’re done, load this into the springform pan, flattening it out into an even surface.
Here’s how thick it will be in a 9″ pan, be prepared for shrinkage though
Put it in the oven at 180ºC until it looks like this.
You may need to take it out to drain the fluids from time to time, at least, place a flat baking tray on the rack beneath it.
Now you have two buns, and a patty. Take one patty and put down a layer of cheese
Now place the meat patty on top
Then a layer of cheese on top
Add some lettuce, then the top bun, and you’re done!
From here, it’s really up to you. I opted to put lettuce on here, as everyone I was feeding held no objections to it, but on my own piece I used tomato, mustard, ketchup, and jalapeños. Suit yourself, and your guests, and experiment with it. It’s fun to make, impressive to show, and tasty to eat.
